    Well, I went to the new Cabela's store here in Wisconsin, about an hour south of where I live. Cool place, very similar to the one they opened back around '98 in Prairie du Chien, WI except that one didn't have an upstairs if I recall. These are just a few of the pics I took. Not the greatest quality but you get the idea.

    Which city is the new Cabela's in? I live fairly close to the one in Prairie du Chien, it is so interesting to visit, I especially like the big display with the white wolves, gorgeous! I need to get there sometime soon to get new clips for the DH's pistols and a new revolver chamber for my pistol. Not to mention I'm trying to talk the DH into getting me a bigger deer rifle...*LOL*

    The new one is in Richfield, WI. The exit off of Hwy 41 is #60, the 145 exit. Kinda near where 41 and 45 come together just north of Milwaukee, near Germantown, or at least the exit for Germantown. Is that thoroughly confusing? LOL!

    We're getting Cabelas 25 miles from my home! Already have Bass Pro 60 miles away. Southern KY will never be the same!

    We have a Cabela's in Sidney, NE where it all started. In fact, I have been part timing it at night in the Distribution Center.
    Did I mention my employee discount? :p

    I think there are three Cabelas here in Minnesota, all 200 or more miles from me, but there is a Gander Mountain just 65 miles away in Duluth. I was in a Cabelas once near Grand Rapids, Michigan (or I think it was Grand Rapids). Our Gander Mountain looks like a Cabelas' "starter kit", they have some stuff and in 20 minutes you can have looked at everything in the store.

    We just got a new sportsman's warehouse about 30 miles away and I've heard that we'll have a Cabela's soon in Fife, WA.

    Does he ever! LOL! Of course, we know he wouldn't need to get any ammo for himself...he only needs the one box of .30-30 right? 20 cartridges, 20 bucks. Well, maybe 18 bucks, gotta do a couple sighters once every ten years! :nerd: :baby04:

    Here in Charlotte, NC we are blessed with a Bass Pro Shop and a Gander Mountain. You can spend a whole day just looking around in these two stores. The Gander Mt has more guns out on the floor for you to look at and handle. You can actually touch and handle about every type of long gun you can imagine. I love it in there. I think when they opened, they advertised that they had over 1500 guns on the floor for our viewing pleasure. Man I almost OD in that place looking at different guns. Was up almost all night just thinking about which one I was gonna get next. Man it is hard being a man. LOL

    You can check out the locations of the Cabela stores here: www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/home/home.jsp? Flyer for the Grand Opening of the Richfield store was in Sunday's Wisconsin State Journal. Closer for me than the Prairie du Chien store but still a long drive. Especially since I'm only about 10-12 minutes from a Gander Mountain!

    Looks like our Hamburg,Pa store.Great fun to visit!But I like to support our local-yokals' sporting goods stores. They're the guys you need when something goes wrong or if you need something right away on the day of the hunt.If we don't support small businessmen,they won't be there any longer when we need them.
    Also,I prefer the comraderie & the assitance they give.These big chains don't have the same concern for their customers as a store owner does.The number of customers of these stores are too great & they can't spend the same amount of time as small businesses can. They(small businesses) taught me how to turkey call,have invited me on hunts,etc. :)

    We have been to the one in Dundee, Michigan. Beautiful place.
    But why did they build that big trout stream in there, stock it with large trout, sell fishing rods, but won't let me fish? :shrug:

    I hope to make you all drool. There is a new Cabela's opening up in a year and a half about three miles from my house between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, LA. I can't wait!!!!! I've been to the one in Dundee Michigan a year ago and it was awesome. I now know that I will never retire because I'll spend every available dime at that place!

    Heck, I got me a Cabela's store right here in my computer, really don't see any need to cut down the trees and clear 10, 15, 20 acres to build any more :)
