    Default Awesome news today

    The lead story on my local news today ?
    We are getting a Cabelas ! I am so stoked !
    The closest Cabelas are in Boise, 5 hours away, or Lehi, Utah, 4 hours away. Life is good

    Good deal!

    It's the closest thing I have here in Kansas for a fly shop.

    One thing I have noticed is to be careful with their prices. Cabelas does not always price well. (used firearms in particular). It pays to price shop a bit ahead of time especially for things you an easily pick up elsewhere.

    Congrats! Cabelas isn't always the cheapest but neither are most of the big box stores. The good news is that they are pretty darn happy to price match. Get yourself the Red Laser app on whatever smart phone you have (assuming you have one) and use it!! Not just for fishing stuff either...

    Awesome deal! Cabelas is a great store overall. Their line of gear is usually top notch and can run with the bigger brand names that you'll pay 3x as much for. Not to mention their warranty and customer service is good too.

    I was shopping in our Boise Cabela's when they were first open, and before their big "Grand" opening. There were store employees and asst mgrs. and mgrs. hip deep. I grabbed a pair of those guys and pointed out a mispriced case of 20 Ga shotgun shells. They asked if I wanted them and I said I'd buy a case of 16 Ga if I could get that price. He sold me the 16's at the lower price, and dispatched one of his minions to carry the case up front and put my name on it so I could keep shopping. Neat,Huh? Then, during the grand opening, I bought a tying vise, got it home and discovered it was not what I'd thought I was getting-The display models were mismarked-I asked the dept guy, who checked with his boss and I got the better vise at the lower (mismarked) price.
    The next trip into the store I dropped over $200. on boots etc. Oh well. Still love the Outfitter series boots.
    Still often use the free shipping to the store since I'm only about 10 min away.

    Also shop lots in the Bargain Cave.

    We were supposed to get one in erie, but the land they were going to put it on, they wanted to buy it and the landowner only wanted to lease it. So cabelas said see ya.

    In the end were getting a field and stream in the same exact spot and they're leasing the land. Guess field and stream is as good as cabelas. Only problem is I have a cabelas credit card!

    Nice! I like some of their prices. Some are good and some are ok. I like the price match feature they do. I can't complain with their customer service either!

    We have a gigantic Cabelas here in Hamburg, PA. About 1 1/2 hours away. We also have a Bass Pro Shop in Harrisburg, about 1/2 hour away.

    I love the Cabelas the best! Lots of fish tanks, and a nice restaurant in the store.

    Great prices and great stuff in both stores ...... but I still spend most of my money shopping Orvis online! Except my Scadden "Outlaw Escape" I got that wonderful 'toon at Cabelas!

    As soon as this snow melts, I'll make a trip to the Cabelas in Hamburg!

    I'm pretty much geared-up these days. Five or six years ago I was buying gear or at least ammo every year. Back then I had a decided preference for Sportsman's Warehouse. They were much more generous with stuff for our youth hunt group. I still start there when I price a purchase.
