An amazing auction packed with over $300,000 of top shelf hunts, a ticketed raffle with over $37,000 worth of hunts and bowhunting gear… plus special event raffles held throughout the convention. That is what you will find at the 2015 Pope & Young Club Convention! You may be familiar with our records program, but the Pope & Young Club is far more than the keeper of the universally recognized repository of North American big game bowhunting records. Each year, through our Conservation and Outreach fund, the Club supports programs that help to ensure bowhunting will be here for future generations. These efforts include DNA research of Coues’ deer, the Shiras’ moose study, the Elk research in Absaroka Mountains of Wyoming, the outdoor education center at the Jack Creek Preserve, the Bitterroot Elk Project, Primero Conservation jaguar research, Conservation Leaders of Tomorrow, American Wildlife Conservation Partners, QDMA, TRCP, U.S. Sportsmans Alliance, Kicking Bear One-On-One Camp for kids, National Archery in the Schools program and many others. Our convention auctions and raffles fund these programs, so please join us and you just might take home a hunt of a lifetime or some of the finest bowhunting gear available today! You will be helping to protect North American big game, fund bowhunter education and defend our bowhunting heritage!
