Are you planning a hunting or fishing trip — or do you just like to daydream?

In either case, two recently released coffeetable books by outdoors writer Paul Fersen should provide plenty to make your imagination take flight.

“Great Hunting Lodges of North America” and “Great Fishing Lodges of North America” feature, between them, dozens of profiles of destinations for hunters and fishermen looking for a vacation getaway. The books are produced by Rizzoli International Publications, in partnership with Orvis, an outfiter that has endorsed each of the lodges profiled in the books.

Fersen has visited many of the lodges featured in the books over the course of his career with Orvis. The books pair his descriptions of the lodges with beautiful full-color photos of the destinations.

“Great Hunting Lodges” and “Great Fishing Lodges” won’t give you the nitty-gritty details of planning a trip to the featured lodges. Their purpose is more to provide the reader with a sense of the flavor of the destinations, which range from luxurious to rustic.

At Pine Hill Plantation in Georgia, for example, you can ride a mule-drawn wagon on an old-fashioned plantation-style quail hunt. At the High Lonesome Ranch in Colorado, you can hunt a huge variety of wildlife, from pheasant and chukar to black bears, mountain lions and elk.

“Great Hunting Lodges” also contains spreads on eight popular game birds — and, for the dog lovers, profiles of eight breeds of sporting dog.

“Great Hunting Lodges of North America” and “Great Fishing Lodges of North America” retail for $50 each.
