Deadline for Pope & Young Recording Period and New Record Book

December 31, 2010 is the deadline for entries to be submitted for the 27th Biennium, as well as for inclusion in the 7th Edition all-time record book, “Bowhunting Big Game Records of North America, 7th Edition.”
Just a reminder to everyone that the 27th Recording Period (2009-2010) is nearing its deadline. In order for your animals to be included in the 27th Biennium, you will need to have them measured and the entry materials in the mail, postmarked no later than December 31st (AND in our office no later than January 7, 2011).

This is also the deadline for entries to be included in the upcoming edition of the all-time record book (published every six years). Again, entries MUST be entered by December 31st (meaning postmarked no later than December 31st AND in our office no later than January 7th) to be included in this book.

The 7th Edition all-time record book will be published this winter and will be unveiled at our convention in Minnesota (April 6-9, 2011). It will be available for sale starting at that time.

The end of the Recording Period marks the deadline for animals to be entered and eligible to be invited in for the 27th Biennium Panel Judging Session and Awards Recognition and display during the Convention.

Established in 1961, the Pope and Young Club is a non-profit North American conservation and bowhunting organization dedicated to ensuring bowhunting for future generations by preserving and promoting its heritage and values. The Club also maintains the universally recognized repository for the records and statistics on North American big game animals harvested with the bow and arrow.
