THE BASICS

The fundamental tools required to measure and compute the score of a big game animal are:


* Measuring cable (along with an alligator clip) - for measuring thelength of main beams and points with curvature, as well as marking base lines.

 * Lip-end measuring tape - for measurements taken with the cableand for directly measuring points.



* Ring-end measuring tape - useful in taking the circumference measurements, because the "zero" reading is inset from
theend of the tape.

* P&Y Measurer's Manual - a complete guide to the measuring procedures for all big game species. 

The above items can be ordered from the Pope and Young Club on-line in the store, or by contacting the Club's national office at PO Box 548, Chatfield, MN 55923 (507) 867-4144.

These basics will enable you to determine a rough idea of the score for a specific animal. To be considered an accurate and official score, the animal must be measured by a certified P&Y official measurer and then the entry materials must be submitted to, and accepted by, the Pope and Young Club for inclusion into the Records Program.

"FeraDyne Outdoors is very excited about our partnership with the Pope and Young Club. We are extremely proud to support such a great organization, personally and as a company. We want to help protect and support the sport of bowhunting, and the ethical pursuit of the animals which we all love."
Jon Syverson, V.P. of Sales & Marketing for FeraDyne Outdoors
"Like many, my view of the Pope and Young Club was one of its capacity as a Recordkeeping institution. After talking with members at the Pope and Young Rendezvous in Poynette Wisconsin in 2016, it was apparent that I had a lot to learn about Pope and Young as a CONSERVATION organization. The Pope and Young membership and administrative personnel are one of the most unified voices in Conservation. They work tirelessly to preserve the bowhunting and archery lifestyles we all enjoy. Their commitment"
Blake Davis, Sales Manager, Xpedition Archery
