WEST POINT, MS - Deer Thugs, a new series from Mossy Oak Productions, is debuting Sunday, July 4 at 9 p.m. EST on the Pursuit Channel.
Mossy Oak's Deer Thugs follows five of the hardest of hardcore whitetail hunters, outfitters who make their living putting their clients on big deer every day of the season, to learn what they know that sets them apart. With weekly input from five of the most experienced, authentic and whitetail-savvy hunters in the game, this series reaches to the core of the tradition and places hunters of every stripe alongside those most attuned to the ways of the whitetail.
Ronnie "Cuz" Strickland, Senior VP of Productions at Mossy Oak, said:
"For almost 20 years the Mossy Oak Camo Cameras have traveled all around the country filming whitetail hunts and over those years we've been fortunate enough to meet all types of whitetail hunters. Of all those hunters, these five outfitters have consistently shown themselves to be among the most knowledgeable we've ever hunted with. For them it's not about big endorsements or becoming famous hunters, instead these are the guys out there every day planting food plots, hanging stands, checking trail cameras and putting their clients on big deer all season long. They know what they're doing and they love every minute of it-in short, they're Deer Thugs."
Deer Thugs features outfitters Justin Eakins of Canadian River Hilton, Kevin Burleson from Heart of Texas Bowhunting, Charlie O'Brien from Catch 22 Ranch, Fred Law of Enon Plantation and Jimmy Riley from Giles Island.
Starting July 4, Deer Thugs is airing 26 weeks on Sundays at 9 p.m. on the Pursuit Channel. For more information, log on towww.pursuitchannel.com
