Hunting the Country is a half hour of outdoor entertainment that carries the powerful message of family fun, fellowship and natural resource stewardship. The combination has made the show the runaway outdoor hit of the year. With an emphasis on the traditions of the outdoors and a focus on the joy of sharing the outdoor experience, Hunting the Country delivers all of the excitement and emotion that make the sport a part of life worth passing on.
Before coming to work for Mossy Oak as the company’s Public Relations Director back in 1990, Ronnie “Cuz” Strickland had already piled up a decade of outdoor business experience, including time as a wildlife videographer. Today as Senior Vice President of Media Services, Cuz’s expanded department produces North America’s highest-rated, traditional outdoors television show, Mossy Oak’s Hunting the County. Additionally, Cuz and his team produce an annual collection of highly anticipated DVD releases including the MegaBucks, Whistling Wingsand Extreme Spring lines.
Cuz still maintains a hands-on, through-the-viewfinder approach to outdoor television production, spending more than 100 days afield each year. Still, even with his busy schedule, Cuz has written two books, “The Truth About Spring Turkey Hunting According to Cuz” and “The Whole Truth About Spring Turkey Hunting According to Cuz.” Originally from Natchez, Miss., Cuz and his wife, Pam live in West Point, Miss. They have two daughters, Amy and Lauran.
