After a long day of stalking in Alaska, dropping a giant moose like this is a perfect way to end the day.
Latt Durance and Troy Sessions of The Best of the West captured some exciting footage of a moose kill shot that would get anyone pumped to get out and hunt big game.
This type of hunting is challenging. You see these hunts on outdoor television but don't see how often they glass mountain ranges to never see an animal.
Then when you do locate one, they have to big big enough to shoot. When you find a giant moose, its about busting your butt to get into position for a shot. You're hoping you don't blow it.
And it looks like that almost happened. You can see early in the video, they tried to get a shot and something spooked the animal. No matter what type of game you are hunting that can be a crushing blow.
But these guys kept after him and finally got above monster and just had to wait for that big boy to give them a broadside kill shot.
Turns out this is Latt's first Alaskan moose so its really special to bag one that big. Congratulations Latt!
