Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living

I have to say the first time I saw that show, I thought WOW, no way. But talking to the folks at Best of the west, Back in Arron Davidson day, and watching a few videos and doing exactly what was said to do and how, I was able to make longer shots than normal. Anyone can do this , IF YOU FOLLOW DIRECTIONS. I have not shot an animal in the last few years thats less than 300 yds, NOR  have I lost one either, not saying I have not missed because I have missed plenty of times, But with each miss I gained more knowledge for missing. I will say pick your shot, think about how you can make this happen. If you can't , there will be another time.

If you are taking shots on game - and missing, you are doing it very wrong.

I could probably take high confidence shots on game at 500+ yards, but a small mistake on my part would mean a miserable and prolonged death for the animal, so I don’t do that.

If your misses give you information, I hope that information includes a small voice saying “Stop sucking, else someone/something else will pay a heavy price.”

I hunt much more now than I did when this thread began, and am more convinced that hunters should limit their shots to what they have experience and confidence doing well - which is to say, 100 yards tops for most hunters.

Gear that gives you confidence you have not earned is never a good thing in my opinion.

I still hate Huskemaw.

I’ve seen a few now, and never been impressed with the shooter or shooting that accompanied them. I have yet to see confidence well earned shooting a Huskemaw. It has always, the few times, been an idiot that wanted to fly before he could crawl.
Freedom is something you take.
Respect is something you earn.
Equality is something you whine about not being given.

Agreed. Technology can’t replace practice or experience.

Who’s the most disliked, Counter Sniper or Huskemaw?

Funny question, Tejas. I had all but forgotten the Counter Sniper.

 Oh, easy win there: Countersniper.

Huskemaw, as best I can tell, makes a functional scope that is marketed in a disingenuous way. Countersniper was a complete fraud, calling something a government contract over-run that was no such thing.  Didn't they get shut down by some government agency over their lies and fabrications?

To reiterate: Huskemaw might be a good scope, it might be awesome - and should be, given the price; but the marketing is dishonest.  I don't care how good a thing is, if you lie to me to sell it, I'm never interested.
