Legendary Deer Hunters

Saxton Pope and Art Young

Picture 3 of 4

Dr. Pope inspired Art Young and the two made many early-day hunts with bow and arrow. Dr. Pope wrote one of the first books really explaining modern-day bowhunting, titled "Bowhunting with a Bow and Arrow." Dr. Pope was born in 1875 and died in 1927. Art Young was one of the first men to bowhunt Alaska, and he did so while be filmed for early documentaries.
