The scene depicts a northwoods field edge with a bowhunter’s attention focused on a small buck – in fact, the hunter is drawing to shoot. Meanwhile, a super buck emerges from the woods, totally undetected by the hunter. Any veteran bowhunter will appreciate the subtle humor and relate to the experience.
“Slipping Up the Back Trail”, by Desmond McCaffrey, is available from the Pope & Young Club in a special limited edition of 950 prints. The image size is approximately 25 ½ by 19 inches, in an attractive and unique vertical format.
The sixth of the Pope & Young Club’s bowhunting record book series, Bowhunting Big Game Records of North America, 6th Edition, is a 856-page volume, including 62,690 entries – all entries in the Records Program through January 1, 2005.
Featured editorial content includes a discussion of the values of hunting and the development and stages of a hunter. Dr. Dave Samuel addresses this thought-provoking topic wrapped around a series of stories by bowhunters ranging in age from 11 to 75 which provides a unique and entertaining look into the importance that bowhunting has in our lives. A special chapter details the Club’s Museum Program and how we are working to increase the awareness and appreciation of our history and heritage.
