Like mentioned in another thread, Cabela's is a destination. Yes they do have stuff that some other local outfits don't carry. I myself am a frugal SOB and since I have already reached the destination, I am all good. I have been to 4 other Cabela's in the country down South and just like the rest it's a nice place to visit, but unless there is a bargain to be had i will look around before making the trip down south, through traffic and dealing with the crowds.
The cool thing is Bass Pro Shops will open shortly and will have yet another place to check prices. This should also keep them in check as far a raising prices.
Today after visiting Cabela's and dealing with the crowds and parking, I went over to Sportsmans. I parked up front, dealt with no crowds. I picked up a new Minn Kota Endura C2 50 trolling motor for $209 ( 10 bucks cheaper than bellas) as well as having the 20 mail in rebate forms next to the product which were nowhere to be found at the Zoo. I also purchased a Excursion 5 raft at Sportsmans. Cabela's told me it would take anywhere from 7 to 24 days to be shipped up here. Since I am off to Kodiak on the 26th to fling a stick at a Big Brown, that was unacceptable.
So for me anyway, it's just another option for my outdoor gear.
Since it appears from the other thread that people are looking for 22lr cartridges, I grabbed a brick out of the vault of 400,30gr American Eagles. I will give these away to the first person to post the misspelled game animal at Cabela's. There may be more than 1, But this one.......I have something in common with.
