“I immersed my life in it. I took jobs that didn’t pay as much. But I was flexible. Being flexible and being willing to take a jump (got me to Vortex).”— Mark Boardman on his path to Vortex
All websites have an "About Us," right? Not this one.
Here is what I found in the Vortex Optics “About YOU” section.
"Normally this is the section where it’s “About Us”. But at Vortex, it’s All About You.
Rather than go on about “Us” and how long we’ve been in business and how great we are, we focus on you, what you need, what you want, what’s important to you—because that’s what makes us tick."
It goes on to say it’s people, products and promises.
I think that’s cool. You’re going to see that same passion come through when Mark Boardman talks about how the company operates, how it serves its customers and how it makes some of the best optics on the market.
Many of you will know Mark Boardman, maybe not by name, but as the guy who went Sitka hunting with Rinella on MeatEater. I think he’s been on the podcast at some point, too. If you like this interview, you should certainly check out those shows.

Restless Native is Sponsored by Allen’s Shocker Gear
Turkey season is here, and I could not be more pumped to go after those long beards. I just found some new turkey gear hitting the market from Allen. It’s the Shocker Turkey Hunting lineup, and I’m really excited about this stuff and I’ll be putting it to the test this year.
To be Shocker-worthy, a product must possess the exact elements to make turkey hunting easier, and make you a better hunter. Each item in the Shocker product line is designed, from inception, with purpose-driven storage compartments, specific features and item orientations with turkey hunting-solely in mind. Each one of these (5) individual items are a critical turkey hunting accessory providing a strong modular foundation to the overall “SHOCKER” Turkey Hunting Collection.
