This is—bar none—the most intense bowhunting footage I’ve ever seen. This crazy-big bull, which is now the current Pope and Young Club world-record Alaska/Yukon moose, was taken by guide Real Langlois near Earn Lake, Yukon.
It’s certainly nerve-racking to hold a bow at full-draw while waiting for a whitetail to step into a shooting lane, but I can’t imagine how Langlois felt waiting on this mammoth moose to clear the branches. For a few seconds it looked like the bull might crash through the brush and trample Langlois—you don’t experience that fear factor during a deer hunt.
Well done, Langlois. And great job, too, by both cameramen.
Until next time . . .
