On Saturday, February 8th, the Pope and Young Club convened a Special Panel of Judges in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, during the Great American Outdoors Show, for a potential P&Y World Record Black Bear. Jeff Melillos' massive bear scored 23 5/16 and is now the largest bow-harvested black bear in North America.
Pope and Young is proud to announce our 2020 Conservation Hunt drawing. This years hunt is a 10-day ALL-INCLUSIVE Canadian Safari from Savage Encounters. The winner will receive, hunt, and all five tags - Moose, Whitetail, Mule Deer, Black Bear, and Wolf. Lodge accommodations or cabin and one-on-one guide.
In an effort to increase youth involvement in the Pope and Young Club, P&Y has developed the Junior Youth program. This program offers every P&Y youth member a chance at one of three hunts; Texas whitetail hunt - donated by Barnes Keith Ranch, Texas hog hunt - donated by Kyle Hudgins or a Kansas Turkey hunt and bass fishing - donated by Dirk Dietrich.
The Pope and Young Club recently partnered with HHA USA to bring the archery and veteran communities together. HHAUSA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization serving veterans and active-duty members of the United States Armed Forces
