Growing up in a home where I was introduced to the outdoors at a young age, I fell in love with everything that was involved in a hunting or fishing trip. Whether sitting at the base of a big oak waiting for that squirrel to show himself or floating on a farm pond watching bass blow up on a topwater frog, I've always longed for that next adventure. In some ways, hunting today has lost the simplicity and purity that was always present when I was a young boy and, perhaps, I didn't know any better.
By creating Panola Brand®, my hope is that we can get back to our roots, back to a time when things were more simple than they seem today. Another hope I have is that we can help bring back a certain level of respect to the animals we hunt and pursue. I believe God put these animals on earth with us for many reasons. I believe He put them here for us to hunt, kill, and eat. I also believe He put them here to teach us valuable life lessons through hunting or stewardship, and also to be reminded of His grace and mercy. Hunting and fishing bring people together in ways that many things on this earth cannot. It is our responsibility to be good stewards of the natural resources that we have been blessed with.
Thank you so much for your support of this brand and I hope you make some great memories on your next outdoor adventures!
-Jay, Panola Brand®
