Arkansas Game and Fish Commission Celebrating 100 Years with Gifts


The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission has produced two books to celebrate the agency’s 100th anniversary, coming up March 11, 2015. The good news is they can be delivered for Christmas if ordered by Dec. 17.

“A Century of Conservation” tells the story of the AGFC’s first 100 years through short articles and lavish photographs covering more than 180 pages. Author Joe Mosby, the dean of Arkansas outdoor writers, covers the first years of the AGFC from its formation March 11, 1915, through the restoration of white-tailed deer and black bears, and conservation battles. AGFC photographer Mike Wintroath displays some of his best work in this hardbound, large format. Any lover of Arkansas history or the outdoors will be intrigued by this coffee-table volume.

The other publication – “A Celebration of Conservation: 100 AGFC Recipes” – is a compendium of recipes from AGFC employees, their families and friends. Everything from venison dishes to fish and casseroles to desserts is represented, again illustrated by Wintroath’s colorful photos. This lie-flat cookbook includes more than 130 pages.

“A Century of Conservation” is $20 if purchased in person at one of the four Arkansas Game and Fish Commission nature centers or at Little Rock headquarters; it’s $25 if ordered by mail.

“A Celebration of Conservation” is $10 in person or $13 if ordered by mail.

Save money by buying both books for $25 in person or $30 by mail.

The books are available through or by calling 501-223-6351.
