PGC offers up gift ideas for hunters

From Mirror reports

HARRISURG — While hunting often is challenging, bagging the perfect gift for the hunters in your life is as easy as placing a phone call or visiting the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s website.

Among gifts available from the Game Commission this holiday season is Penn’s Woods Passages, a newly released book by renowned wildlife artist and author Bob Sopchick.

The more than 300-page book contains an exceptional blend of Sopchick’s inspiring columns and artwork that appeared over the years in the Game Commission’s long-running monthly magazine, Pennsylvania Game News. But it’s more than just that. Many of the stories have been updated or otherwise remastered by Sopchick. The book retails at $19.99, plus sales tax for Pennsylvania residents and shipping charges for mail orders.

“Whether storytelling or painting, Bob Sopchick’s style is all his own,” said Penn’s Woods Passages editor Joe Kosack. “His work captures the magic of outdoors Pennsylvania, emboldens our hunting heritage and reinforces the value of nature’s treasures. Story after story, will warm your heart, bring tears to your eyes or compel you stop and reexamine the natural world around us.

“Penn’s Woods Passages is a gift every outdoors Pennsylvanian will appreciate and a welcome addition to any hunter’s bookshelf,” Kosack said.

Penn’s Woods Passages is among many gifts available either through The Outdoor Shop at www.pgc.pa.gov, or by calling toll free to 1-888-888-3459.

Also popular this holiday season are the Game Commission’s 2021 Wildlife Calendar, as well as the 2021 Bird Calendar, both of which are packed full of stunning wildlife photos and nature tidbits. The calendars also can be had at a great price — $9.25 each, or two for $14.99, plus sales tax for Pennsylvania residents and shipping charges for mail orders.
