A Look Back at Pope & Young’s 32nd Biennial, 60th Anniversary Convention
Pope and Young, America’s leading bowhunting organization, held their 32nd Biennial Convention, where they celebrated 60 years of bowhunting heritage with an incredible attendance, great auctions, amazing seminars, and capped it off with the reveal of their updated logo, and expanded mission statement.
The bowhunting community clearly embraced the return to in person meetings, with the total attendance being just shy of 1,000 archers. With their great corporate partners and outfitters, the Pope & Young live auction had over sixty hunts and products available for bidding. Alongside the live auction, there were over 125 items in the silent auction, that included some truly one-of-a-kind items.
Michael Waddell delivered Friday Night’s keynote speech, one which was both entertaining and engaging for those in attendance. A special thanks to Michael for hosting an impromptu meet and greet for over 100 people, who got to enjoy some time with himself, Remi Warren, Andrew McKean, and others, all over some hot pizza and cold beer.
With over 120 breath taking animals on display, and ten new world records, the Pope & Young Convention offers a big game display that can’t be seen anywhere else!
The convention offered a great opportunity to celebrate the first 60 years, but more importantly it was a time to look forward to the next 60 years for Pope and Young.
