"Bo Whoop" Donated to Ducks Unlimited

No longer will “Bo Whoop Two” ─ once owned by legendary outdoor writer Nash Buckingham ─ rest by itself on display at Ducks Unlimited’s national headquarters in Memphis, Tenn. Its original counterpart, “Bo Whoop,” Buckingham’s prized 12-gauge HE Grade Super Fox shotgun, will be donated to Ducks Unlimited by Hal B. Howard Jr. of Palm Beach, Fla., at DU’s 73rd annual convention in May in Dallas, Tex.

    Howard, 84, a former vice president and New York office director for the investment firm T. Rowe Price, was the gun’s highest bidder at a recent auction held by James D. Julia, Inc. Howard’s father, Hal B. Howard Sr., was Buckingham’s close personal friend and hunting partner for more than 30 years. Howard Sr. was mentioned at least a dozen times in Buckingham’s stories—more than any other individual.

    Including the buyer’s premium, Howard purchased the gun for $201,250. He wasted little time in contacting DU about his decision to donate the gun for permanent display alongside Bo Whoop Two, which currently resides at DU, courtesy of William B. Dunavant Jr.

    We are extremely grateful to Mr. Howard for his generous donation of such a revered gun,” said Randy Graves, DU’s chief executive officer. “Nash Buckingham was one of the great waterfowlers and conservationists, and having both of his Bo Whoop guns on display at DU headquarters is an honor and a pleasure. We encourage everyone to visit our headquarters to see these treasures on display.”
