On Oct. 16 and 17, a total of 127 moose were taken by moose hunters statewide - 89 bulls and 38 cows.

The biggest moose was a 970-pound bull, dressed weight, with an antler spread of 58 inches, taken Oct. 17 in WMU-E2 by Leslie Fox of Peterborough, N.H.

New Hampshire's nine-day moose hunt continues through Oct. 24.
