Georgia Roots

Grown out of a dream dating back 25 years, Coastal Outdoors’ desire is to be Glynn and its surrounding counties’ one-stop shop for fishing, hunting, and archery supplies. Our three founders forged their relationship out of commonalities in faith, hobbies, and a dream: to open up a store that gave their customers the best products and services available—all while continuing the tradition of the great coastal outdoors. 


The seed for Coastal Outdoors Fishing & Hunting was first planted in January 2016 when Butch Bishop, Josh Bishop and Jason Haray were riding to Charolette, NC to attend a product display show. After some planning and preparation, the company officially opened their Brunswick, GA store in late August of 2016.



Cecil Parkers Black Joe is Labrador Retriever from the blood lines of several hall of fame dogs including Aces High, Code Blue, Lucyana Fast Willie, and Snake Eyes Double or Nothing.  He aspires to become a great retriever that knows how to hunt for himself but follows directions and trusts his handler.  He has spent most of his younger life acclimating himself to various types of people and situations.  Though he typically finds himself relaxing on a 50 lb bag of whole kernel corn, he is ready to go at a moments notice.  Joe welcomes all opportunities to show you around the store and looks forward to photo opportunities.



Ronnie Cooper was born and raised in Brunswick, GA.  He is an avid bow hunter and competitive archer, and has been since the age of six.  He has won two Georgia State Championships and has qualified six times for the world championships.  He started working on, tuning, and building bows around 2001, as well as designing custom arrows.  He has been with Coastal Outdoors Fishing & Hunting since the beginning.  Ronnie looks forward to both helping beginners get a great start to their archery career and helping the experienced archer advance to the top.  Whether its competitive shooting, fun shooting, bow fishing, or bow hunting, Ronnie can help you get set up for your next challenge.
