Testimonials | View All
"Like many, my view of the Pope and Young Club was one of its capacity as a Recordkeeping institution. After talking with members at the Pope and Young Rendezvous in Poynette Wisconsin in 2016, it was apparent that I had a lot to learn about Pope and Young as a CONSERVATION organization. The Pope and Young membership and administrative personnel are one of the most unified voices in Conservation. They work tirelessly to preserve the bowhunting and archery lifestyles we all enjoy. Their commitment"
Blake Davis, Sales Manager, Xpedition Archery
"The Pope & Young Club is the premiere, no, the only bowhunting organization that is working tirelessly to protect and preserve bowhunting. There are no longer any excuses for not supporting Pope & Young. If you aren't a member, you should seriously consider signing on."
Curt Wells, Editor Bowhunter Magazine
