The Boone and Crockett Club’s Roughriders Society recognizes those individuals who have integrated their financial estate plans to include the Boone and Crockett Club Foundation and its mission.
Since its founding in 1887, the Boone and Crockett Club’s history has exemplified leadership... that of developing, enhancing, and promoting America’s wildlife conservation movement. The Conservation Legacy of the Club and its members has resulted in setting aside more land for wildlife habitat, creating more conservation organizations, and initiating more legislation and programs for the benefit of wildlife than any other institution.
You can create your own legacy and help carry the Conservation Legacy of the Boone and Crockett Club into the future by becoming a member of the Boone and Crockett Roughriders Society, a planned giving program designed for Club members and friends who wish to leave a lasting legacy by including the Boone and Crockett Club Foundation and its mission in their financial estate plans. Funds contributed to the Foundation are held in a permanently restricted fund that supports the Club’s key conservation leadership programs.
Planned giving is not about death. It is about what is best for you and your family. It lets you plan while you are alive and choose where you want to leave your legacy. Careful planning can ensure that your property is distributed in the manner you choose. It can also significantly reduce administrative costs and estate tax liability.

TESTIMONIAL: William B. Ruger -- Honorary Life Member
“I have always been proud of my membership in Boone and Crockett, and felt that I was one of the luckiest of men to be associated with a group I genuinely liked, and which was devoted to the same interests that have stimulated me for a lifetime. Not only that, but Boone and Crockett over its long history, has acquired immense prestige, initially because of the character of the people who make up the Club.”
Bill’s belief in the Club and the depth of his convictions are fully apparent in his passing. Through his Charitable Remainder Trust the Boone and Crockett Club Foundation received a generous gift that added greatly to the Foundation’s endowment and assisted the Club in continuing its Conservation Legacy, which, in Bill’s words, “is devoted to the same interests that have stimulated me for a lifetime.”
