The Pope and Young Club's Corporate Partner Program allows manufacturers the opportunity to partner with the Club to help protect and defend bowhunting, promote fair-chase bowhunting, and increase engagement with North American conservation efforts. The Pope and Young Club has given over one million dollars to conservation programs across North America.
"As bowhunters, we seek a simpler way, a way that embraces tradition, heritage, adventure, and conservation,” said Hayden Kelly, of SITKA Gear. “It’s these values that SITKA Gear appreciates and the reason we support the Pope and Young Club. Thank you to everyone at the Pope and Young Club for protecting the legacy and encouraging fair chase and ethical bowhunting."
The Pope and Young Club’s focus on developing young bowhunters is evident in their support for programs such as Kicking Bear Camp For Kids, National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP), National Bowhunter Education Foundation (NBEF), Raised At Full Draw Bowhunting Camps and Scholastic 3-D Archery (S3DA).
“Continued support from great companies like SITKA Gear allows the Pope and Young Club to have a larger impact on our conservation and outreach efforts,” said Rick Mowery, Communications and Marketing Manager for the Pope and Young Club. “As bowhunters themselves, SITKA has shown that they stand with bowhunters and the Pope and Young Club to help protect and defend our shared bowhunting heritage and the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation.”
