How much does it cost to have an animal measured?

There is no charge to have an animal measured. Our official measurers are volunteers who provide this valuable service free of charge to the hunting public for the Pope and Young Club. There is a recording fee, currently $35.00, to submit the entry for possible acceptance into the Records. Once the entry has been accepted, the score becomes official and the entry will remain in the Club's archives of big game records throughout history.

Do I have to be a member of the Pope and Young Club to enter an animal in the Records Program?

It is not necessary for a bowhunter to be a member of the Pope and Young Club in order to enter an animal; the Records are open to anyone who legally takes an eligible animal. Final acceptance of an entry is at the discretion of the Board of Directors of the Club. It is also not necessary for an individual to have an animal in the Records Program to join the Pope and Young Club.

I've entered an animal into the Records. Does that mean that I'm a member of the Pope and Young Club?

No, honoring an animal with a listing in the Records does not constitute membership in the Club. Each is entirely separate and independent. The Pope and Young Club has an active membership that supports the programs, functions and principles of the Club. The Records Program is one such program that the Club maintains. If you are an ethical, fair chase bowhunter - you should be a member of the Pope and Young Club - join today!

How could I become an official measurer?

The first step in the appointment process is to request and complete a Measurer's Application form and return it to the Club's headquarters. Then, based on the information on the application and the need for additional me
asurers in the applicant's area, the applicant may receive an invitation to attend one of the Club's measurer training workshops. These three-day limited-invitation workshops generally take place during the summer months.

Is there a time limit as to when an animal can be entered into the Records?

Before an animal can be officially measured, a "drying period" of at least 60 days must elapse. There is no time limit to when an animal can be measured and entered into the Records. We are often receiving entries for animals that were harvested in the '80s and '70s.
