Bing Crosby, the late crooner and actor that dominated music charts and the big screen from 1926 until his death in 1977, was more than an entertainer. He was also an avid outdoorsman. Check out this very cool message he taped for Ducks Unlimited in the 1970s.

Although filmed more than 30 years ago, the message is still the same: support Ducks Unlimited because they’re supporting the ducks–habitat enhancement, research and legislation.

It’s very cool video clip delivered in Crosby’s famous bass-baritone voice; his classic camouflage and the overlay of modern hunters afield only enhances the down-to-earth message of conservation, education, family and hunting.

Living in the Crosby’s hometown, I like to imagine that during his youth the famous man, and perhaps first multi-media magnate, might have stalked some of the same grounds in search of pheasants, quail, ducks and geese that I do.

Anyway, take a look at the video clip. The message, delivery and imagery is all very cool.
