“I always say that our #1 resource here in the great state of Mississippi is our NATURAL resource…the land, the habitat, the wildlife….And most of all our outdoor people who embrace it. We have a rich tradition blessed with many “obsessed” outdoors men and women, especially outstanding and inspirational outdoor writers. Mike Giles and his body of work in life is definitely one of these!”
Chairman and Founder of Mossy Oak Brand
