I did not know states kept records of the heaviest muskrat ever taken, but apparently, Missouri keeps track of those things and now they have a new state record.
In a Facebook Post, Dennis Hull posted the picture of the certificate sent to him by the Missouri Department of Conservation confirming that he is now the state record holder for muskrat.
The swamp donkey weighed in at a whopping 4 pounds 5.3 ounces. Which is huge by muskrat standards.
Dennis posted a picture of his catch back in January but had to wait till now for the state to confirm the record.
Congratulations on the record. Great Job
