Time to Get Them Entered
Enter your animal before the end of the year to make
 Pope and Young’s 9th Edition Record Book
Pope and Young, America’s leading bowhunting conservation organization, recently announced the deadline for entry into the two-volume 9th edition Record Book.  The 32nd Recording Period will end on December 31, 2022.  This will be the deadline for consideration in the massive two volume Pope & Young 9th Edition Record Book.  To be considered for entry, your official entry must be post-marked by 12/31/22.  
“Entering an animal in the books is something special, something that everyone with a qualifying animal should consider” says Dylan Ray, Marketing Director. “It isn’t about the hunter, it’s about honoring the animal, an animal that deserves to be in a book amongst his peers, for everyone to celebrate. We put our animals on a wall, and celebrate them in our own homes, but putting them in a record book will honor that animal forever, for everyone to celebrate.”

Pope and Young believes it is important to celebrate the majestic big game animals we pursue as bowhunters, and the Record book is the ultimate way to honor both the animal and the hunter.  The record books came into existence to illustrate the effectiveness of bowhunting as an ethical conservation management tool for fish and game departments throughout North America.  These records are still used to this day for conservation across the country, and we encourage hunters to enter their harvests to continue those conservation efforts. 

With over 14,000 new entries since the 8th edition was printed in 2017, this two-book set will be the best edition yet. The Pope and Young Record Book has more entries than any other record book in North America.  This book is set to be published and available in April 2023. In it you will see 75 new Top five all time ranking trophies and 14 confirmed new world Records.  With the possibility of an additional 12 new World Records that are still currently 'Pending,’ there isn’t another record book that has ever showcased this many highly ranked animals.
