Malon T "Butch" White was awarded the 2012 Ovis AND the 2012 Legend award, becoming the first-ever recipient of both.

Butch White certainly began his hunting career at an early age. He was just a youngster in 1950 when he bagged a Colorado muley. He began sheep hunting in the early 1950s as well, as evidenced by a 1954 Dall sheep. By 1969, he had completed his Grand Slam and has a very low documentation number of 71. Butch was a banker, and not a politically correct one. He had many of his trophies displayed at the First National Bank of Durango. We could talk about Butch’s sheep and goat hunting for a long time, as he was a pioneer for many Asian sheep hunts, but he did not neglect the North American species along the way, as the photos you are seeing will show. He obviously hunted every continent, considering he was the Weatherby Award winner in 1983.
