One thought on “The Pope & Young Club Seeks Executive Director

  1. I hope P&Y find an outstanding new President. One thought: It would be nice if the new leader would remove P&Y from the list of groups who are anti-hunting along with PETA. That’s right, anti-hunting, at least when it comes to crossbows. Both PETA and P&Y agree on this issue: Crossbows should not be allowed in any big game archery season.
    It is funny how the debate changes over time, but the basic issues remain the same. One group wants to keep another group out. P&Y supports ethical hunting with a “bow and arrow,” but in the 60’s and 70’s many traditional hunters were against compound bows because they were not “bows and arrows”. Since the states have allowed “compound bows” as legal for taking big game during the archery seasons, now the traditional and compound users are saying that compound bows are bows and arrows, but another type of bow…crossbows, are not. Traditional, compounds and crossbows are all archery equipment and use “bows” whether or not the limbs have pulleys and cams, or the bow is attach to a tiller or stock. I wish the new President luck in bringing the P&Y organization into the twenty first century.
