What are the body dimensions of a moose?
(Auburn, WA USA)
I am hunting moose for the first time and I will be using a Mil-Dot scope and would like to know the dimensions of a moose so I can range them properly in my scope.
Here is some information for you Wesley...
The body dimensions of moose will vary some depending on the sub-species.
The Eastern or Taiga bull moose will weight approximately 360 to 600 kg (794 - 1323 pounds) with a body length of equal to or greater than 280cm (9.2 feet).
They will stand at about 6.1 to 6.4 feet high at the shoulder.
The Alaskan/Yukon or Tundra bull moose will weight approximately 700kg or more(1540 pounds) with a body length of equal to or greater than 280cm (9.2 feet).
They will stand at about 6.2 to 7.0 feet high at the withers.
Hope this helps.
