“Cuz, if we just wait it out a bit more, I believe these birds will end up right in our lap…..” Anyone who has hunted with Ronnie “Cuz” Strickland knows its not easy keeping the big man down. He wants to get up in their grill. Well, 10 minutes later, three longbeards broke from cover to our left in a trio of beauty.
It was the first longbeard in range following Dads final fly up to roost, and all the teachings, all the passion I had learned from him slapped me full in the face and I could not be happier or more proud to call myself, Dick Kirby’s son.
This hunt started many months ago as I met with Cuz and the men at Mossy Oak to hear more about TURKEY THUGS and DEER THUGS. The passion and energy is exhilarating; two companies partnering for the greater good of others is something that took me about 30 seconds to go all in!
”Through our efforts with Quaker Boy, we can make a difference in these warriors’ lives. It’s been my privilege to share time afield with some of these men and women. I am humbled and honored by their presence,” said Ronnie “Cuz” Strickland, Executive Vice President of Mossy Oak.
