The Pope and Young Club Releases
8th Edition Of The All-Time 
Record Book, Bowhunting Big Game Records of North America

This is a book of bowhunting’s history and remarkable success story. The 8th Edition of the All-Time Record Book is a “must-have” for any bowhunter’s personal library. The 1,028-page volume is the eighth edition of the Pope and Young Club’s all-time bowhunting record book series. Bowhunting Big Game Records of North America, 8th Edition, includes 108,603 entries—all entries in the Records Program through December 31, 2016.

The comprehensive listing of entries includes the final score, gross supplemental score, selected measurements, location, date of kill, hunter’s name, and all-time rank. The listings are sorted by species and then by score in descending order. The book features portrait photos and field photos for the World’s Records and some first-person-account stories of the hunts that produced these World’s Records. This book introduces ten (10) new World’s Records since the 7th Edition record book publication.

The book includes more than 15 educational and entertaining feature stories, including a photo essay capturing past images of our great “Forefathers of Bowhunting,” detailing special moments of Dr. Saxton Pope, Art Young, Fred Bear, Ishi, and many more. A CD-ROM of the records is included with this record book. The CD contains records information in database format (Microsoft Excel). Popularly sought-after and requested, this format allows users to personally sort the data fields of their choosing on their PC. Copyright issues do not allow for the reproduction or dissemination of this information.

The Bowhunting Big Game Records of North America, 8th Edition not only recognizes and honors these extraordinary examples of North American big game, it also traces the past and present health of these wildlife populations and offers indisputable evidence of the continued success of hunting as a wildlife management tool. Perhaps just as important, the pages of this publication are a testimonial to the spirit and time-honored traditions of the hunt and harvest.

You can order your personal copy of Bowhunting Big Game Records of North America, 8th Edition by calling: (507) 867-4144 or go online at www.pope-young.org.
