GG, I met Aaron Davidson in 2006, at the time he was unknown but had this great idea for a rifle scope and was already in design and prototype mode. At the time we were both in Trinidad CO, and the prototype was shipped to him there. I was the second guy to look thru what would become the Huskemaw scope
. He was already an accomplished hunter marksman and longrange shooter. He also was a huge advocate of the Berger bullets and had been using them for a considerable time as a hunting bullet. He also was a strong fan of the 7mm magnums, due to the lack of enough recoil to warrent a brake, and the high bc bullets available. I shot, fished, and hunted with Aaron thru that July and can say without a doubt he is one of the most honest, humble, and pleasing people to be around. In 3 weeks we had become good friends and are still today.
Aaron had this, what I will called at the time, "dream" that he was going to develop and market this product, and take this scope with his wind hold designed reticle and 1/3moa click value BDC to BOTW for their use and marketing ability. Hoping that the use on the show would garner sales of his scope.
Low and behold when he contacted them it apeared to ME (notice I am discussing my views) that there was already trouble at the BOTW, Managment and John were having a falling out. I by no means want this to be a cut on John, I highly respect his ability and knowledge of LRH. But sometimes working relationships fail, I'm sure we have all been in some form of this thru our lives.
But to that effect Aaron became a part of the BOTW, and managed to forge ahead with his product. And I feel has made great strides in fostering LRH into the mainstream.
GG, remember this is made for television, Aaron has stated to me he does not like to air shots over the 1000 yard mark, feeling it could open the show up to undue critisism, So please don't beat him up for not living up to the "expert" sometimes being the expert may mean leaving a shot on the table, also remember some of the hunters on the show are guest who may not quite be up to some of the shots. With that said the only film of the shows I see is on the net as Programing is not available to me.
I just recieved my custom turret from Aaron, he overnighted it to me so I could use it a bit before my CO deer and elk hunt starting this Saturday. The Huskemaw
is on my recently built 7rum, and I ran it thru the last couple of days, I must say I really like it. I shot my dope out to 1200 yards so he could get his true bc calculation for my turret, Easy and effective and most likly all I need to get out to my personal limit.
