Fred Bear was one of the greatest bowhunters to ever walk the face of the earth. He was also a strong supporter of the Pope and Young Club and served as the organization's very first Vice President.
Bear believed in influencing the sport in a positive way and caring for it responsibly. He proved this through his tasteful promotion of bowhunting, by becoming the first mass-producer of quality archery equipment. He also developed literary works that captured not only the hearts and minds of many avid bowhunters, but described so well the essence of ethical, Fair Chase bowhunting. Not surprisingly, these same values were etched deeply into the founding tenets of the Pope and Young Club, which is why he cared so dearly about this organization and its mission.
In 1985, Papa Bear made the first sizeable contribution to the Club’s Trust Fund to begin the process that would ensure a long-lasting future for the Club from one generation to the next. Bear’s steadfast belief in The Pope and Young Club’s unique ability to better the image of bowhunting continues in us all.
Now, we are asking you to give back to the sport you love and to the organization in which Papa Bear believed so strongly about. Make a trust fund donation of $250 or more today, and receive your Official Pope and Young Club Sitka® Jetstream Vest. Wear it with pride and in doing so know that you will be following in Fred’s legendary footsteps to honor the future of bowhunting and wildlife. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD ORDER FORM
