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.

"I love my Endeavor ED binoculars; I have never been to a 3D tournament before where I had no trouble at all with identifying the scoring rings. They are amazing!"
With his bow, he has also pursued whitetail deer, turkey and black bear. Outside of shooting and hunting, Dale is a husband and father to a young son, whom he is raising to appreciate the outdoors, from fishing to tractor rides. Dale also pro staffs for Pearson Bows and is on the shooting staff for Victory Arrows.
