Pope-Young OKs lighted nocks, mounted cameras

— CHATFIELD, Minn. — As a result of changes to the Pope & Young Club's bylaws that passed a vote of the Board of Directors and were ratified by the voting membership, standard lighted nocks and bow-mounted cameras will be exempted from a rule disqualifying the use of electronics attached to a bow.

Since the late 1980s, the club has refused to accept bow-killed animals into its records program if electronics were attached to the bow.

“I was pleased to see such a large percentage of our voting members chose to change our bylaws to allow lighted nocks and bow mounted cameras,” said Jim Willems, president. “It is generally accepted that such equipment does not aid in harvesting an animal.”
