    Wast of time going to cabelas

    Went to cabelas today to get some new mid season camouflage. What a waste of time they barley had anything in the Camo section. Plenty of cargo pants to buy with under armour. Talk to an employee and she stated they are changing the store around. They are getting rid of the bargain cave by October and the Camo will be out then. So if you want anything now don’t bother.

    I just talked with a friend of mine today that went to Cabela's last week and he said the same thing. "Big waste of time"

    Took a day trip to Cabela's last week and thought the same thing. I only found about 1/2 of what I was looking. My local dicks had a better selection of some of the stuff

    Good point with the Bass Pro takeover but I wonder if it can all be written up to that. I noticed the same thing at Cabela's. Very limited selection and, over the years, more and more pricey. At one time you could get some pretty good stuff at reasonable prices. Now not so much. I guess someone has to pay for the sport shows and advertising. I think it's a vicious cycle where Cabelas pushes what you see on the shows and what the sponsors are showing and we are caught in the middle.
    You know the point of advertising? Making you believe that this is what you need as opposed to what you want and then getting you to buy it.
    Do you really need new camo? I know the stuff I used 10-15 years ago worked great then and still works great now.
    The other thing you are witnessing is free enterprise at it's best. Run the other guys out of business than you can set the market as far as what you want to sell, when you want to sell it and for how much.
    You're between a rock and hard place. I personally wouldn't go to Dick's for the BS they pulled.

    Interesting enough we have two stores within 15 miles of each other Bass Pro in Concord NC and Cabelas in Fort Mill SC ( right on Nc/SC border) great selection on camouflage clothing at either place.
