Chatfield, MN – The Pope and Young Club is proud to announce the continued support of SITKA Gear. SITKA has continued their strong commitment to wildlife conservation, the protection and defense of our bowhunting heritage and fair-chase, ethical bowhunting.

Thank you to everyone at the Pope and Young Club for protecting the legacy and encouraging fair chase and ethical bowhunting.”
