VANGUARD Pro Staffers are winning local, state, national and world archery championship titles, raising funds to take servicemen and women injured in the line of duty and terminally-ill children on adventurous hunts, managing popular ranges and shops, teaching archery in after-school programs, leading regional archery associations and clubs, and more. Though they're diverse in experience, age, background and industry involvement, VANGUARD's Pro Staff members share common loves: Archery, the outdoors and VANGUARD sporting optics. Scattered across North America and in Australia, too, this mix of energetic teens to seasoned pros with decades of experience all agree: VANGUARD binoculars and spotting scopes run laps around the big-name optics they used before discovering us.
Location: Calgary, AB, Canada
Favorite VANGUARD product: Endeavor ED 1045 binoculars
Linda Hewlett is one of the most well-known and respected female 3-D archery shooters in Canada.
Her skills in competition come from a life of bowhunting whitetail deer, mule deer, elk, black bears and pronghorn.
In the off season, Linda spends most of her time in her archery shop where she helps grow enthusiasm for the sport with others.
Linda was the first Canadian shooter to try VANGUARD optics, and she was impressed.
"It doesn't matter if I'm trying to see the 10 ring on a black target, or spot a bedded Muley in the buckbrush, my Endeavor ED 10.5 x 45 gives me the advantage every time!" Linda said."When people ask for advice about what optics to purchase, I can't say Vanguard fast enough."
