To commemorate the Pope & Young Club’s 50th Anniversary, wildlife artist and Pope & Young Member, Michael Sieve, created a stunning painting that captures bowhunting’s history and spirit. The scene depicts a circa 1961 hunting camp, with the ghosted images of Ishi, Saxton Pope, Art Young, Fred Bear and Glenn St. Charles in the campfire smoke. The constellation, Orion (the Hunter), is seen in the sky. A limited edition run of 500 prints were produced. Image size is 24" x 20".
The challenges facing bowhunting’s future are ever evolving. Anti-hunters and activists continue to work to destroy our heritage and redefine our way of life. Many of the privileges hunters enjoy are being trampled, but we will not let our heritage be destroyed. We will not forget our history. We will not permit these challenges to diminish the vital role bowhunting plays in our culture. For over 60 years, Pope and Young has procured and preserved the records of bowhunting and bowhunter’s greatest accomplishments. Under our watch these records will not be erased. Collectively, Pope and Young members will not allow our hunting privileges to be reduced or forgotten. Bowhunting’s long, proud heritage will not be destroyed.
Today we continue our 60-year long mission with a new brand and a renewed commitment.
A mission that seeks to Preserve, Promote, and Protect Bowhunting.
