bowhunters from all corners of North America will converge on Dallas, Texas, in April to celebrate bowhunting.
The Club’s biennial conventions are always an exciting and unique gathering of bowhunters for fun, camaraderie, networking, education, meetings, fundraising and honoring special big game animals!
Always the visual focal point of a P&Y convention, the 28th Biennium North American Big Game Exhibit will be an awe-inspiring display. See close to 100 of the biggest and best animals taken in the last two years, including several potential new World’s Records. With the support of Cabela’s, this exhibit of exceptional animals is a testimony to the quality and welfare of today’s wildlife populations and habitat, a truly unique opportunity to observe, appreciate and honor this continent’s greatest natural treasure-its wildlife!
Educational seminars on diverse subjects ranging from bowhunting mule deer tactics and how everyone can teach archery, to instinctive shooting and women bowhunting with independence, will be presented by such speakers as Randy Ulmer, Roy Grimes, Fred Asbell, Dr. Ed Ashby and others.
Luncheons will feature Curt Wells and Tom Miranda.
The Live Auction, Saturday afternoon, features dozens of fantastic hunts ranging from Illinois’ whitetail hunts to Alaska brown bear hunts to an Alberta combo hunt for moose, mule deer and whitetail deer, to a Gredos Ibex hunt in Spain. A complete list of auction hunts can be accessed at: http://www.pope-young.org/auction_details.asp
Friday’s Banquet features a keynote address by internationally acclaimed conservation speaker Shane Mahoney, as well as the presentation of the Club’s Conservation Award, Stewardship Award and the Lee Gladfelter Memorial Award.
The Saturday Awards Banquet honors the extraordinary animals from the last two years and officially recognizes the new World’s Record animals. A special presentation will feature “Art Young (pioneer bowhunter) direct from 1923!”
