The Long Range Hunting Authority
Best of the West set the hunting community ablaze with its “controversial” long range hunting television show in 2005. Branded as unethical and reckless, the focus was on technological advances that made long range hunting/shooting possible without charts or calculations. With our Huskemaw Optics brand rifle scopes, custom ammunition and sub-MOA custom guns, the rest of the world is trying to catch up to our long range accuracy.

Mountain Hunter
The demand for a lightweight high country shooting system lead to the engineering of the Mountain Hunter rifle. Through research and development, BOTW has engineered a state-of-the-art extrememly lightweight carbon fiber stock that is unbelievably sturdy. The performance and accuracy is the same as all of the proven BOTW shooting systems. The Mountain Hunter is an excellent option for the shooter who wants a smaller, slimmer, lightweight, yet easy to handle, accuracy-proven rifle. A Huskemaw rifle scope compliments each rifle for precision accuracy and incorporates the only windage enabled turret in the industry. $6,399

Mountain Scout
The quest for lighter with more accuracy has lead the Research & Development Team at Best of the West to this beauty known as the Mountain Scout. This extremely lightweight rifle with a titanium action, carbon fiber stock and carbon fiber barrel is unbelievably sturdy and accurate. The performance and accuracy of the 20″ barrel is unprecedented and therefore we’ve restricted cartridge options for this system. The Mountain Scout is an excellent option for the shooter who wants a smaller, slimmer, lightweight, yet easy to handle, accuracy-proven rifle. The Huskemaw Blue Diamond 4-16×42 comes on the base model with options available. $9,050. Suppressor sold separately.

The Huskemaw Optics Tactical Series
5-20×50 Riflescope

The newest addition to the Huskemaw Tactical Series lineup is the next evolution in long range optics. It incorporates the patented TrueBC®, the Rapid Field Ballistic Compensator (RFBC) and the simple yet powerful wind compensating reticle (US Patent 8365455). The 34mm main tube, 50mm objective lens, and side focus parallax correction dial make the 5-20 Tac Hunter an outstanding choice for both varmint hunters and target shooters. It also includes special features for the big game hunter: Ballistic compensation and parallax adjustments are easily made without breaking shooting position, and the F2 50mm objective lens creates a bright, clear image for high magnification and low light use.

Long Range Precision
Our ballistic compensation technology is the first to accurately determine the drag model and ballistic coefficient (BC) for your bullet in your system. The 5-20 is the first rifle scope built specifically to take advantage of a long range hunting situation, and it is the first and only scope with our patent pending windage compensation technology – anyone shooting at extended to long-range distances in hunting conditions, without windage compensation is just guessing.

Lifetime of Durability
The Huskemaw rifle scopes come with a lifetime warranty and the heavy duty construction tubes are waterproof and shockproof. Huskemaws are designed to withstand the harshest environmental conditions and durable enough to handle any impacts. Planning a hunt in some of the most extreme conditions? No problem!

High Image Quality
We designed the optical system and the coating specifications to compete with the best. The Tac Hunter 5-20 with a 34mm tube uses Schott F2 glass with the highest level of multicoatings for exceptional light transmission and high refraction index. Simply put, this riflescope performs well in low light conditions. Then we added an illuminated reticle with 10 levels of intensity for more low light functionality.

Technical Innovation
Our riflescope was designed and built by hunters for hunters. Our philosophy dictated a rugged construction of the highest quality, along with real improvements that double the effective range over any competing product. It all adds up as the best riflescope for long range or precision hunting, backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

NOTE: Free turrets are no longer offered with scope purchase.
