Pope and Young is proud to announce the winners of the 2021 Junior Outdoors Program drawing. These winners were selected by Youth Coordinator Justin Broughton, Junior Outdoors advocate Zack Walton, and Marketing Director Dylan Ray out of the pool of all active youth members of the Pope and Young Club on August 4, 2021. This benefit provided to our youth membership is meant to engage our young bowhunters in hunts they may not get a chance to pursue on their own, to create family memories that will last a lifetime, and to cement the fabric of bowhunting as an integral part of their life. The Junior Outdoors Program is also in direct support of the ‘Promote’ pillar of the Pope and Young Club’s strategy to create bowhunters and provide bowhunting opportunities for our youth. These hunts and merchandise packages were acquired through extremely generous donations from the club’s membership, outfitters, and corporate partners.
The program is entirely self-sufficient, not using any funds from the club’s general fund in order to achieve these goals. We would like to take the time to thank everyone who has made donations to sponsor youth memberships, donate hunts and merchandise, and everyone who gave so freely to the Junior Outdoors fund through the hospitality room at the Reno Convention and other Pope and Young events. The smiles we will soon see on the young hunters faces below will return that generosity ten-fold! Winners will be contacted directly via telephone or e-mail with details on how to book their hunt or claim their prize package. In the event the youth is too young to legally participate in the hunt, the prize package will be first offered to an older sibling who is also a youth member. If no such sibling exists, the hunt will be given to an alternate youth member.
