WILLISTON, N.D. - Rick Ellingson of Williston took down this bull moose in unit M-11 south of Williston in September.

It measures 190 6/8 officially and weighs more than 1,000 pounds. It is 53 2/8 wide.

Jason Zins of ND Bucks and Bulls says the Pope and Young measurements are a state record. Zins says the previous state record was held by Aaron Folk. That moose measured 166 7/8 and was taken near Mohall in 2012.
