They were joined by big game hunter [[Frederick Selous]]. Roosevelt brought along his weights for weight training in the camp. In September, [[Kirinyaga safari camp|Roosevelt's camp]] received some guests, [[Richard Medlicot]] and the Jones family. Roosevelt was impressed with young [[Indiana Jones]], teaching him to fire a gun, and the importance of conservation, and how this hunt was important in bringing education to America through the museums that would benefit from stuffed animals. Giving the boy a pair of binoculars, Roosevelt encouraged Indy to explore and witness nature. One night, over a game of checkers, Roosevelt agreed to allow Indy to help solve the mystery of the Burton's [[fringe-eared oryx]]. Indy was presumed lost the next day and Roosevelt led the search parties. When Indy appeared in the evening, Roosevelt sternly rebuked him in front of his parents. However, the next morning at breakfast, Roosevelt was pleased when Indy and [[Meto]] had discovered where the oryx was to be found, and the scientific reasoning that Indy provided as to why so few where around. Roosevelt and his crew followed Indy and Meto to the oryx's grounds, and shot three of the creatures before being stopped by a pleading Indy. Realizing that his young friend was distressed, he stood down his rifle and rationalized to the hunting party that Indy was right -- there were too few of these creatures to kill any more of them. Indy kept a photo of himself and Theodore Roosevelt in his journal<ref>''[[The Lost Journal of Indiana Jones]]''</ref>.
