Is This the New Pope and Young World Record Alaska Moose?

WOW!!!!! :yike:

Darin Mack almost didn’t hunt Alaska with his son this fall. “Money was a little tight,” says the 36-year-old technical advisor with Lancaster Archery in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. “But my wife and I talked it over and decided it was now or maybe never.” They chose now, and on September 23rd, with his son by his side, Mack arrowed what may be the new Pope and Young world-record Alaska-Yukon moose.
