“The Kansas Bowhunters Association was honored to receive the Pope and Young Stewardship award at the P&Y Convention held recently in Omaha, Nebraska,” stated Matt Palmquist, President of the Kansas Bowhunters Association. “The countless hours our members volunteer to promote bowhunting is what makes the KBA great! Thank you and congratulations to the entire KBA family that worked to earn this award.”

The KBA stands for the wise use of our natural resources and the conservation of our wild game and their habitats. The KBA stipulates that only persons who are willing to put forth the effort to assure that the sport will be undertaken in a humane, sportsmanlike manner should attempt to harvest game with a bow and arrow. The impetus of the KBA has been directed, not to the taking of large numbers of game animals, but rather toward the taking of game in an ethical, humane manner... a manner which enhances the hunter's character, not his or her fame. 

“State bowhunting organizations are incredibly important to the future of bowhunting,” said Rick Mowery, Communications/Marketing Manager for the Pope and Young Club. “The Kansas Bowhunters Association has set a high bar when it comes to promoting bowhunting and portraying our bowhunting heritage in a positive light. The Pope and Young Club is very proud to present them with this prestigious award. Congratulations to all the KBA members and leadership for a job well done!”
