NORTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont woman has taken a record 931-pound bull moose while archery hunting in the Northeast Kingdom last week.

Using a compound bow, Tammy Miller of Fairfax took the moose on Friday while hunting in Norton. The moose, with an antler spread of 53 ¾ inches, topped the 919-pound previous archery record moose taken last year by Kevin Rice.

Miller said five weekends of pre-season scouting enabled her to be hunting in an area with good moose trails and scrapes.

She said she and her husband, Eric Miller, heard a moose raking branches, so he raked some branches with a moose scapula and called to imitate a bull moose. She said 15 minutes later, the bull appeared about 15 yards away.

Vermont’s archery moose season began Oct. 1 and ends Wednesday. The regular moose season is October 17-22.
