About Us

Scott Severson, the founder and editor of HuntTested with his public land archery elk.

Our Story

HuntTested was founded by Scott Severson. Scott began his career in the outdoors at North American Hunter Magazine where he managed the product review section and went on to lead the company’s internet business. From there he went on to run a Twin Cities-based marketing agency (and still does). Scott has always been a little obsessed with researching the latest hunting gear. He was looking for a way to blend his love of hunting and hunting gear with his internet and marketing background and founded HuntTested.com. HuntTested.com is committed to providing the best in-depth content, resources, and reviews on the gear that hunters need to be successful in the field. HuntTested’s editorial focus is big game gear, upland game gear, camping, and general outdoor gear.
