Green Hills of Africa
This epic work from one of the finest authors of the 20th century has been re-released in an edition that includes not only the original memoir of Hemingway’s 1933 safari through East Africa, but additional content such as the safari journal of his second wife, Pauline. By Ernest Hemingway; MSRP: $30.

The Lost Woods
This collection of 15 short stories explores the ties between multiple generations of hunters forged through the pursuit of game in a changing land. Though fictional, each piece tells of the deep and very real connection to place that hunters find afield and strive to protect against the advancement of time. By H. William Rice. MSRP: $24.99.

Thompson Cigars
If the dark cherry finish on the Churchill 125 Humidor from Thompson Cigar isn’t rich enough for you, fill it with stogies from one of the company’s many available sampler packs and you’ll soon be as satisfied as you were after taking that fabulous 6x6 bull elk. MSRP: $142.

American Barrels Bourbon Whiskey
This small-batch bourbon with a sweet and oaky taste was created with the patriot in mind. The bottom of the bottle is encased in a brass-like shotshell base while the top half features the Gadsden flag snake wrapped around its diameter. Let freedom pour in the offseason. MSRP: $29.99.

NRA Wine Club
Take an opportunity to experience the hidden vineyards you may only find by sheer luck anywhere else. Choose red, white or a combination, and receive two bottles every month, selected by wine experts for you to enjoy while telling your own tales by the fire. MSRP: $29.99 per month.
