Bringing Back the Lions - $19.99 – Available on Amazon
Written in an entertaining style by one of the world’s leading conservation writers, this engaging book details how, for generations, conservationists around the world have spent billions of dollars and countless hours trying to restore wildlife and wildlife habitat in areas of sub-Sahara Africa decimated by many factors, including poachers, corrupt governments, hungry local populations, and a lack of education and experience in how to balance current needs and wants with long-term, sustainable goals that benefit both wildlife and local peoples. And while these efforts often produce short-term results, long-term successes have been few and far between. In Bringing Back the Lions, Arnold -- a Distinguished Research Professor of Genetics at the University of Georgia -- details how a small group of professional hunters spearheaded a near-30-year effort to return a once-incredible wildlife paradise from a decimated and near-barren landscape to one of the world’s premier wildlands – the area of Mozambique known as Coutada 11.

LIVETARGET Sonic Shad - $10.99 – www.livetargetlures.com
Full disclosure, I’m a big fan of blade baits. You can cover a lot of water, and a lot of the water column with one bait, and especially in early spring and late fall when fish can be just about anywhere, I love the versatility. Not to mention you can generally cast these things half a mile. The Sonic Shad uses a dynamic inner-core design to give it a lot of flash. Pop the rod tip and you get a darting action that fish can’t resist. Let it fall, and the flutter is just too tantalizing for bass or walleye to ignore. It’s a perfect stocking stuffer for that angler on your list.

Cries of the Savanna - $17.99-27.99 – Available on Amazon
Sue Tidwell lived in awe of Africa’s extraordinary wildlife. After years spent appreciating the animals in her imagination, the tenderhearted American hated the idea of joining her husband on a big game hunt. And getting attacked by blood-sucking tsetse flies the moment she stepped off the plane gave no hint of the mind-blowing change of perspective in her future. With her initial animosity turning into curiosity as they breathlessly tracked dangerous beasts, Sue formed a surprising bond with their young, government-assigned game scout. And as she became entranced by the tales and wisdom from the Masimba Camp crew, she was humbled by the mystery of the vilified safari and the people who relied on it for survival.Supplementing her own experiences on the elephant-rutted roads with local insights and scientific research into conservation efforts, Tidwell explores how her preconceived beliefs sluiced away under the deluge of reality. And with an evocative narrative peppered with self-deprecating humor, vivid imagery, and over ninety photos and illustrations, you’ll emerge forever changed by the truths this greenhorn found buried in a rugged and romantic landscape.Cries of the Savanna is an unflinching and passionate memoir. If you like awe-inspiring adventures, truth revealed through laughter, and life being stranger than fiction, then you'll adore Sue Tidwell's brush with the wild.
Flambeau Scrapper Buck Deer Decoy - $149.99 – www.flambeauoutoors.com
Born to agitate, not intimidate, the Scrapper Buck's adolescent presentation based on a carving by award-winning sculptor Chris Schiller will coax any buck looking to mark and protect its territory into range. The Scrapper Buck's inferior size and rack, compared to its mature predecessor, The Boss Buck, replicates that of a curious 2.5 year-old foolishly trespassing or looking for love in all the wrong places.
