  The Pope and Young Club Continues Support for National Bowhunter Education Foundation (NBEF) projects

The Pope and Young Club Conservation, Education and Outreach fund recently awarded a grant to the National Bowhunter Education Foundation (NBEF).  The grant will be used to develop Field Day Signage Kits that assist with instructor training and improve student/instructor communication. On one side the Field Day Signage displays the curriculum content in a bright, concise manner, while on the reverse side it conveys “Thought Starters” for instructors to make sure no topic is overlooked during the course. These instructor “Thought Starters” are also printed on pocket-size, tear-resistant, water-proof pamphlets.

The Field Day Signage Kit contains a weather-resistant banner, observation trail check-lists and pencils for the class. These kits aid instructors in conducting field days for online students as well as field days for those students attending a traditional class. Up-to-date teaching materials help retain existing and attract new instructors. As new staff and volunteers are added at the state-agency level, the Field Day Signage Kit assures the NBEF programs' high standards are carried forward.

The NBEF has been a long time recipient of the Pope and Young Club’s Conservation and Outreach Fund grants. These grants have assisted the NBEF with specific projects such as the “Project STAND” initiative to promote public awareness of treestand safety and injury prevention. The Pope and Young Club grant helped provide “ProjectSTAND” literature, update the treestand-safety website, and provide marketing materials vital to delivering this message to the consumer. With the grant monies provided by Pope and Young Club’s Conservation and Outreach Fund, over 15 million impressions focused on treestand safety have been made via websites and printed materials. This funding also helped certify over 500 treestand safety instructors who teach both youth and adults the importance of treestand safety.

The Pope and Young Club and the NBEF have a long-standing history with connective roots dating back to their origins from the National Field Archery Association. Today, it seems only fitting that both organizations work in tandem toward common goals such as conservation, the principles of fair chase and general knowledge sharing to help create safe, ethical and successful bowhunters.  The Pope and Young Club and it’s members, are proud to support the NBEF with both of these important projects.

"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"
