Gary Parish has been shooting for more than 15 years and considers optics to be as important as the bow itself.
That's why he was thrilled to discover VANGUARD optics through the recommendation of a friend.
"The quality of the optics is by far outstanding!" Gary said."They're very easy to adjust and I like the eyepiece's lockdown feature; they're a real pleasure to use. I have never owned a pair of glasses that at 50 yards, allow me to see each and every arrow hole in my target on my practice range, and that alone says a lot!"
His accomplishments include:

- 3rd place, 2010 Michigan IBO State Champion
- Placed top three at the IBO Indoor World Championship three years in a row
- 2009 ASA Indoor State Championship
- 2008 Michigan Archers Association FITA State Champion
Gary enjoys helping fellow archers achieve their goals and compete at their best. He volunteers his time to teach young people the sport at his local archery club.
"Seeing them enjoy and succeed in the sport, and in hunting, is one of my best accomplishments," Gary said.
