So many of the old guard are disappearing, but I'd be shocked if Quaker Boy disappeared. I have a good friend who hunted for several years with Dick and he often hunted our area. My friend brought him by many times and he usually was packing a dead turkey. He could be a bit demanding and arrogant at times but I also seen several times he made things right for some hunters. Overall I think Dick was a good guy and sportsman. Many people try to attach themselves to these guys and TV shows, you have to sort them out. Take the turkey thug show. I personally know one of the thugs (from past seasons) and ran him off the family property with a threat that if I ever saw him near it again he would be seeing a man with a badge. A group of us actually escorted him out of a conference once. This makes me very cautious of TV personalities, but Dick Kirby was not one of them. I once confronted Dick about a problem I had with an unfulfilled promise of one of his pro staffers. I got a letter the next week explaining the problem was addressed and by the way here is enough free mouth calls to get you through a couple years. The man built a good company it would be a shame if someone let it go under.
