Pope & Young Club has published the very FIRST of its kind, Bowhunting Records Velvet North American Big Game. Published in 2015, this book contains all velvet entered animals entered prior to January 1, 2015. This book also includes editorial content on the history of velvet entries in the Records Program, a chapter on preserving velvet, and multiple chapters on hunting these velvet-clad trophies. This full-color book is a guaranteed good read for all serious bowhunters, and a great resource too!
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.
