The Pope and Young Club has given over one million dollars to conservation programs across North America. Programs that include, The Wild Harvest Initiative, Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry, National Wildlife Federation Howe Peak/Deadman Sheep Endowment Fund, Jack Creek Preserve Foundation, the Bitterroot Elk Project, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, American Wildlife Conservation Partners, Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, Isle Royal Moose Study, National Conservation Leadership Institute, National Bowhunter Education Foundation, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance, National Archery in the Schools

“Without the Pope and Young Club and the legacy of influence that Dr. Saxton Pope and Arthur Young exhibited, modern archery would not have the impact and reach it has today,” stated Harold Jankowiak, Vanguards Sr. Marketing Manager. “Vanguard is proud to be part of their legacy through our partnership with World Archery, supporting tournament archers, and partnering with Pope and Young to protect and promote ethical bowhunting. We at Vanguard believe archery can be a gateway

to get more youth involved in hunting and passionate about conservation.”

“We are proud to have Vanguard join the ranks of the conservation-minded, pro-bowhunting companies that make up our Corporate Partner program,” stated Rick Mowery, Communication/Marketing Manager for the Pope and Young Club. “Their willingness to support the future of our bowhunting heritage and every single P&Y member, speaks volumes to their character,

their commitment to bowhunting and the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation.”
