Friends son went to boy scout camp and got a pic of the bug attached. I think it is a moth but not sure

Male Dobsonfly

Dear Steve,
The mouthparts of a moth form a coiled, tubelike proboscis, unlike this impressive, harmless, male Dobsonfly that has saber-shaped mandibles.  We just found this impressive site, Seabrooke Leckie, with gorgeous mating Dobsonfly images.
