The hunt for Old Mossy Horns by Del Austin is one of the greatest in bowhunting history. Starting in 1957 this epic hunt ended on Halloween evening, 1962. A Pope & Young classic harvest that scored at 279 7/8.
 
“You gotta be lucky you get in the right place. You gotta be lucky that you don’t screw up. So yet there’s alot of luck in it. I dont care what anybody says, you gotta have some luck to take a trophy like that. It’s been quite an experience. I wish I could go through something like this again.” – Del Austin

Always remembered and always respected. This man was a legend and inspiration for bowhunters. I’d love to go on a hunt with him or Fred 🙂
