Pope & Young Club Pledges Support For The Wild Harvest Initiative

Chatfield, MN – The Pope & Young Club is proud to announce its support of the Wild Harvest Initiative.  This groundbreaking initiative will be “…the first complete assessment of the significance of hunting and angling to modern society, economically, socially, and ecologically.”

Wild Harvest Initiative is a program run by Conservation Visions, Inc., a global wildlife enterprise founded by renowned conservationist Shane Mahoney.  Conservation Vision’s motto, “One Natural World, One Humanity, One Chance…Conservation Matters” underlies Mahoney’s belief that today conservation is more important than ever.

“I am delighted to welcome the Pope & Young Club into the Wild Harvest Initiative Alliance,” said Shane Mahoney, CEO of Conservation Visions Inc. “Pope & Young has always stood for the highest ethical standards and continues to be a progressive and leading voice for the bowhunting tradition in North America.”

The Pope and Young Club is a non-profit North American conservation and bowhunting organization dedicated to the promotion and protection of bowhunting by striving to increase awareness and appreciation of bowhunting foundations, principles and values. The Pope and Young Club is focused on Fair Chase hunting ethics that support the ethical pursuit of free-ranging, wild game animals without unfair advantage while promoting the conservation of both habitat and wildlife. The Club also maintains the universally recognized repository of records and statistics on North American big game animals harvested with a bow and arrow.
