Quick History

Parker Compound Bows Inc was originally founded in 1984 under the name Nationwide Archery. The company's founder, Robert Errett, is a former employee of Bear Archery and friend of the famed Fred Bear. Nationwide Archery grew to become a major player in the archery world and in 2003 became Parker Compound Bows Inc. The influence from Fred Bear and Bear Archery is still obvious today in the design of Parker bows. The growth and success of Parker can be accredited to the consistent output of high quality products and unequalled customer service. read more

About Parker

Parker Technologies

Eccentric Systems - Parker Bows has been known for smooth drawing bows for many years, but their EZ Draw Cam has set itself apart. This is one of the smoothest drawing cams in the industry.

Limbs - Parker's limbs do not fall short of their high quality standards, their limbs are meant to take whatever you can dish out. Each of the adult model bows are manufactured with a Parallel Limb design to optimize performance.

Risers - Parker machines each riser from lightweight aluminum for strength and functionality. While these risers may not look as fancy as some of the competition, they get the job done every time.
