Walter H. White discusses his involvement in the Boone and Crockett Club in the late 20th century. He shares his opinion about the Club’s establishment of the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch in Montana as well as addresses his concerns with current record-keeping strategies and the lack of political influence the Club has on conservationist issues. White talks about the work of the Heads and Horns collection and on various Club committees, including the Records Committee. White expresses his disinterest in the Club’s efforts to diversify its membership and the relocation of its headquarters to Missoula, Montana. He briefly describes a hunting trip in Alaska in 1954 where he shot a Kodiak bear.
