EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 Pope and Young Club to Celebrate Grand Re-Opening of the P&Y/Glenn St. Charles Museum of Bowhunting During Chatfield Western Days
 
The Pope and Young will be celebrating the grand re-opening of the P&Y/Glenn St. Charles Museum of Bowhunting in conjunction with Chatfield’s Western Days celebration, Aug. 7th, and 8th, from 8 am to 5 pm. Western Days is an annual celebration for the town that is home to the headquarters of the Pope and Young Club. 2020 marks the 53rd year of the celebration, which started in 1967.

The P&Y/Glenn St. Charles Museum of Bowhunting is the singular, crowning testimony to North America's rich bowhunting heritage, a place to learn about bowhunting's history, a place to appreciate bowhunting's "rediscovery," and a place to understand bowhunting's place in wildlife conservation and our culture. At the P&Y Museum of Bowhunting, you can soak in bowhunting’s rich heritage, and track the history of modern bowhunting. This is a little slice of bowhunting heaven. Learn about Dr. Saxton Pope, a surgeon and medical instructor who arrived at the University of California in time to study the famous Ishi. Learn about Art Young, the first to film a big game hunt with a bow and arrow. That’s how deep our roots run. That’s the stuff we as bowhunters need to see, embrace, and be excited about our rich history. Admission is free, and we promise, if you love bowhunting, you will love this place.

P&Y events, coined as “Conserve2Preserve,” will include: Trophy measuring of bow harvests, a youth and adult target shoot, door prizes, photo opportunities with the iconic, Fred Bear “Little Delta” cabin, P&Y merchandise sale, and guided museum tours. There will also be booths from MN DNR, Footed Shaft, Coyote Creek, Magnum Sports, and Chatfield Fish & Game.

Door prize drawings will be held twice per day - 12 noon and 4 pm for items like P&Y branded Yeti cooler, Kryptek soft bow case with P&Y logo, youth bow & quiver set from Footed Shaft, C3 bowstring & 1-yr. membership/Archery Range pass from Coyote Creek, Magnum Sports package, and a set of record books from P&Y. Winners must be present at the time of the drawing. Attendees receive one door prize entry for every animal measured, one entry for purchase of a 1-yr. P&Y membership, two entries for 2-yr. membership, four entries for a 4-yr. membership, and ten entries for a lifetime membership.
