The Pope and Young Club's Corporate Partner Program allows manufacturers the opportunity to partner with the Club to help protect and defend bowhunting, promote fair-chase, and increase engagement with North American conservation efforts. The Pope and Young Club has given over one million dollars to conservation programs across North America.

The Pope and Young Club’s focus on developing young bowhunters to protect the future of bowhunting is evident in their support for programs such as Kicking Bear Camp For Kids, National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP), National Bowhunter Education Foundation (NBEF), Raised At Full Draw Bowhunting Camps (RAFD) and Scholastic 3-D Archery (S3DA).

Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's mission is to inspire everyone to enjoy, love, and conserve the great outdoors. Guided by the visionary leadership of founder and CEO Johnny Morris, the company is making a significant impact in its communities and on the future of conservation.

“Continued support from great companies like Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s allows the Pope and Young Club to have a larger impact on our conservation and outreach efforts,” said Rick Mowery, Communications and Marketing Manager for the Pope and Young Club. “Bass Pro and Cabela's have shown that they stand with bowhunters and the Pope and Young Club to help protect and defend our shared bowhunting heritage and the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation.”
