Pope & Young Club Announce Release of “The Traditional Journey Continues”


The Pope & Young Club, a non-profit North American conservation and bowhunting organization announces the release of “The Traditional Journey Continues.”  The second in a series of hard cover books chronicling the foundations and spirit of hunting with the bow and arrow.

“The Traditional Journey Continues ($30 + S/H) is an easy-reading collection of stories, bridging more than a century about how hunting with the bow and arrow can, and does, positively impact our lives,” says editor, M. R. James.  “This is a book for every single bowhunter out there!  It’s designed to inspire and inform readers of bowhunting’s enduring legacy.  The book is a celebration of ‘rolling up our sleeves and getting busy’ at bowhunting!”

Read the story of Ishi as told by his friend and hunting companion Will “Chief” Compton. Join Dr. Saxton Pope as he relates Art Young’s adventures in Alaska in the early 1920s. Glenn St. Charles’ personal account of taking his first-ever deer on a snowy Washington State wilderness hunt, and Fred Bear’s personal account of tagging a Wyoming elk in 1952.  These books will have you feeling like you were right there experiencing it all with them!

Contemporary authors, Fred Asbell, John Gardner, Marv Clyncke, Len Cardinale, Doug Clayton, Mike Schlegel, Jay St. Charles and Glenn Hisey, dive into the feelings and emotions we experience with participation in the varied activities known as bowhunting.  The journey of a bowhunter isn’t necessarily about recurves, longbows or compounds. But it is, whether on purpose or by accident, about finding the joy and value in the heritage and traditions that are this thing we call BOWHUNTING. It’s about relishing in the challenges of the sport; about learning its history; it’s about experiencing the thrill of the chase, up close and personal; about the hours of practice earning the perfect shot; about honing your skills and relying on them; about dreaming and planning for the next hunt; and so much more, clearly defining why bowhunting is worth preserving intact for future generations to share and value.

A great gift idea for the passionate bowhunter!  Get both books in the series for only $40! A Traditional Journey (2007) AND The Traditional Journey Continues (2013).  Order today on the P&Y website!  www.pope-young.org/gift-shop.asp or call 507.867.4144 to order by phone.
