Brian Wensel is a retired U.S. Marine who grew up in Western Pennsylvania, hunting the woods of the Alleghany National Forest and State Game Lands. He picked up his first bow at 15 and hasn't put it down yet. Whether it's indoor NFAA tournaments in the spring, 3-D IBO tournaments over the summer, volunteer work with the Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation supporting wounded troops, or sitting patiently in a tree stand enjoying the serenity of fall while waiting for a whitetail, Brian has a bow in hand year round.
Brian discovered VANGUARD optics in 2010 and now considers himself a fan for life.
"There is nothing more critical to the success of an archer than quality optics," Brian said."When I put my hands on my first pair of VANGUARD Endeavor ED binoculars, I was AMAZED at the clarity and light gathering abilities of this fine piece of gear. I have had some high-end glass over the years, and I have to say they have all been replaced with VANGUARD optics. Phenomenal quality construction, crystal clear glass, extraordinary low light capabilities...everyone should have a pair! I'm confident in saying that since upgrading all my optics to VANGUARD products, I have taken that next step and moved to the next level of competitive archery and hunting!"
The most important parts of Brian's life are spending time with his wife and four beautiful children, archery and the outdoors.
"It's a passion that will remain strong forever," Brian said.
