Huskemaw Optics was created in 2007 from a growing frustration towards current products available in the optics industry that offered long range precision for the average hunter.  The frustration was compounded when those manufacturers refused to listen to the reasonable requests for modifications to currently available scope models.  As technology in laser range finders and VLD bullets advanced the industry, Huskemaw Optics took a turret and put yardage markers and their patented wind hold values with a simple and precise reticle.  Long range hunting has never been so simple and yet so precise.


The FNAWS tradition began on a November weekend at Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, in 1974. Thirteen wild sheep enthusiasts passed the time by sharing stories about their encounters with the majestic mountain creatures. After realizing how fortunate they were to have all shared such incredible experiences, they decided it was time to give something back. They formed FNAWS so men and women everywhere could get more involved in the positive management of wild sheep. It was incorporated as a non-profit corporation in Iowa on September 14, 1977, and began accepting paid memberships in 1978 as more people joined the cause. The commitment and noble spirit of FNAWS quickly helped the foundation become the fastest-growing wildlife conservation organization of its kind.
