Jay Maxwell (Stick'em Archery)

Jay Maxwell Bio:

Jay Maxwell was born in Macon, Georgia before moving to the small town of Thomson,Georgia at the age of two. It didn't take long for Jay to fall into the outdoor lifestyle following the footsteps of his grandfathers,uncles, and of course his father, Ed Maxwell. Beginning his hunting career at the early age of three by watching his dad and uncles every move.  Jay soon followed with his first deer, at the age of seven in 1986. Just a short five years later, Jay would take his first archery deer that would soon lead to a growing passion for him in the great world of bow hunting.

After becoming an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America in 1994, Jay started guiding turkey hunts at the age of 16 while attending High School. A few years later at college with a major in marketing @ Valdosta State University, Jay realized college is not meant for everyone! He decided to make a move to Fernandina Beach, Florida to continue his guiding career by obtaining his captain's license focusing on salt water fishing. He specialized in redfish and tarpon for three years.  Jay then moved back to Georgia as a full time hunting guide at Burnt Pine Plantation in Madison,Georgia.  After many great years as a hunting guide, Jay finally made his move back into the marketing field as a sales rep for Arrow Exterminators in the Wildlife Division where he continues his career today.

Since taking his first deer with a bow seventeen years ago, Jay has set many goals in his bow hunting career. He has taken deer with both recurve and compound bows including two Boone and Crocketts and three Pope and Young class deer. The icing on the cake came on November 20, 2007 when Jay arrowed the New Georgia State Record Nontypical netting out at 213 4/8 inches. Ironically, this broke his good friend and CEO of Stick'em Archery, Brian Stephens State Record Nontypical after only 61 days of holding onto it. Jay has also taken his grand slam of turkeys with his bow with the World Slam hoping to soon follow. Along with hunting Jay also enjoys fishing and playing golf where he holds onto a five handicap throughout the summer months. "Hunting will always be my passion, but none of it would be possible without my loving wife Kyla and son Jayden understanding what I love to do. I only wish everyone could experience what God has created for all of us to enjoy in the outdoors."

Jay's State Record Whitetail can be seen on numerous websites on the internet, several newspapers, North American Whitetail Magazine (July 2008), Georgia Sportsman (August 2008), Georgia Outdoor News Magazine (August and Sept 2008), Peterson's Hunting Magazine (November 2008), RACK Magazine (Dec Cover 2008), GOA (July 2008), and featured in Muzzy's "Elite" Monster 200 Club.  Jay has recently joined the Stick'em Archery Pro Staff.  Brian Stephens and Bill Lawson of Stick'em Archery "We are excited about having Jay on our Staff Team.  He has a tremendous amount of hunting and guiding experience for our viewers to learn from.  He has accomplished a great deal in a short period of time.  We look forward to showcasing his skills on the site and on camera."
