The book features more than 100 recipes for game, fish, fowl and shellfish - some of which have run in North Carolina Sportsman in the monthly recipe column he co-authors. But plenty of new dishes have been added, including "Cobia Fingers", "St. Elmo's Fire", "Ginger Tuna", "Venison Steak and Biscuits", and "Philly Baked Duck"
Conti, a native of Summerville, S.C., who now lives in Wilson, started cooking at age 4 when he put a plastic frying pan on a hot stovetop and nearly caused a fire. He has developed a reputation as a top-notch cook of fish and game, and has held cooking seminars at fishing shows and schools in both Carolinas.
"I have learned that all game - fish, fowl or big game - is not created equal, and thus has to be prepared in different manners," said Conti, publisher of North Carolina Sportsman. "When it is prepared correctly, it is memorable. There is something very rewarding about capturing your meal and enjoying it with friends."
Conti's book, which has been a dozen years in the making, is available through the magazine and this website, and at many retail outlets across North Carolina.
"This is not your mama's cookbook," Conti said. "It focuses on game you can catch or kill in the Carolinas."View full product details

August 29, 2005, was a day no American will ever forget. When Hurricane Katrina, one of the top five-strongest storms ever to build in the Atlantic Basin, slammed into the city of New Orleans, her towering storm surge tested the limits of the flood walls and levees protecting one of America?s largest cities. The surge would find them lacking.
As the city filled and drowned, it descended into mass hysteria and anarchy, and within hours became a place that would reveal to Americans whether their Constitution had any more value than the frayed, fragile, brown parchment on which it is written.
As looters and thugs took over, the city?s leaders turned their crosshairs and iron sights toward the lawful, gun-toting citizens who sought nothing more than to defend themselves from the marauding hordes. In what proved to be the greatest real-life test case of the Second Amendment in American history, America failed miserably.
The Great New Orleans Gun Grab tells the story of New Orleans residents who legally defied mandatory evacuation orders to protect their property, and who were subsequently beaten, harassed and robbed of their guns by the very civil authority that was funded and charged to protect them.View full product details
Upon reading Humberto Fontova for the first time, the easily offended often react just as the author's gender-confused neighbor Freddie did when he viewed Fontova cleaning a deer in his backyard: "Humberto! How could YOU? Why, that's awful!"
Fontova is indeed awful, if your sensitivities align with Pamela Anderson or Barbra Streisand. Otherwise, Fontova's just awfully funny.
His second book, released last month by M. Evans, is Fontova at his best? or worst, depending on your perspective.
Titled The Hellpig Hunt, the book is an account of a weekend Fontova and his buddies spend at the mouth of the Mississippi River doing everything from boar hunting to trout fishing.
But if you've read any of Fontova's work, you know there's a whole lot else that goes on, and most of it's side-splitting.View full product details
