About Us

Parker Bows is one of the largest Producers of compound bows and crossbows in the world. Parker’s rapid growth and success can be attributed to the highest quality, amazing performance, and unmatched customer service. Parker’s attention to detail results in a superior product that is made in America.

The original company was founded in 1984 by the late Robert “Bob” Errett, who remained Parker’s CEO from 1984-2016. Bob is a West Virginia native who began his archery career in 1975 with Bear Archery Company in Grayling, Michigan. During this period, Bob Errett was both an employee and friend of the legendary Fred Bear. For 10 years that relationship included an annual week at Fred Bear’s hunting camp in northern Michigan. It is obvious that Fred Bear was a huge influence on Bob Errett and Parker’s attention to quality and customer satisfaction.
