RAPID CITY, SD (February 13, 2024) – The Pope & Young Club has sponsored National Bowhunter Education Foundation’s (NBEF) Today’s 3-in-1 Responsibility Guide Booklet for Hunters. This helpful guide provides timely information about tree stand usage, big game shot placement and big game recovery. Written for hunting with a bow or firearm, the hunting safety and ethics information applies to beginners as well as experienced hunters. The handy size allows it to fit inside a pocket or pack so it can be used in the field. The booklet is available for $5, with quantity pricing available.
“NBEF appreciates support from the Pope & Young Club. It’s highly-engaged group of experienced bowhunters who contribute so much to the sport. The members often help grow the sport by working with beginners and many become bowhunter ed instructors,” said NBEF Executive Director Marilyn Bentz
