At five years old, Jared Lott’s dad gave him the present of a lifetime — a single-shot 20 gauge shotgun. At an equally early age his brother, Kyle Lott, could be found sitting in Claxton, Ga. dove fields alongside his grandpa and dad. Kyle’s first gun was that same 20 gauge, a hand-me-down from Jared.
Later on in life, the brothers joined up with some friends and started shooting video of hunts. Jared jumped in and discovered not only a love for hunting with a camera, but a real talent for finding the drama, excitement and meaning of outdoor adventures.
Growing up in small, rural Glennville, Ga., there wasn’t much to do, so it was natural that Clay Kicklighter would take to the outdoors. He started learning to hunt and enjoying the outdoors at 6 when his parents gave him a Red Ryder BB gun. He promptly shot the back patio door.
