    What would you buy at bass pro?

    If you had a $250 gift card what would you get? So far I'm thinking, stocking up on ammo, maybe a new pair of binoculars, maybe a new scope for my rem. 700, the possibilities are endless!!! There so many things I could use! What would you guys spend it on?

    Maybe even a vacuum sealer for meat I hate freezer burn

    I would get a pair of snake proff boots (the hi red head ones) and some of those stick on targets that show the impact from a far distance..... (the green ones that give a big black mark around the hole after the hit..)

    The vacuum sealer would be a good choice, I have one and meat that has been sealed with it will stay fresh far longer than unsealed plus it can be used to vacuum pack and store other things. Bass Pro carries so much it would be difficult to decide what else to purchase maybe with spring not to far off stock up on some fishing gear to help fill up the freezer.

    Unfortunately the closest bass pro shop is 4.5 hours away in Massachusetts. I have no problems taking a road trip to buy some fun stuff but I refuse to go to mass for anything (except the Olde forge restaurant in Lanesboro,ma). I would have to go un- armed and spend my money in a state that I cannot stand so I will probably use the card online.

    Fly line?? well then you can also look at the Red Head waders and boots; they are great too just as good a G Lumis (i think) better price.... FLY s , do you tie? if so you can go wild in there.. a good wadding staff is always in order..

    CRap I could not make my mind up either...................... Sorry no help here................

    and I love the ROSS Big game reels they carry (salt water fly fishing) the Norfolk area BPS caters to us a bit more with big game stuff in the fishing area... If I won Lotto I could go broke in there in one day I think..

    A while back I got a little food dehydrater at my local Bass Pro. The kids love dried fruit and I also make my own jerky with it. When you compare the price of managers special fruit that you can dry that day or the next with the pre packaged dried fruit it pays for itself in no time.
    Also, I would grab some Winchester SXZ handgun ammo.
    If you reload their primer and powder prices aren't too bad but for brass and bullets you can do better getting bulk pricing on line.

    Man that's a tough question!

    Maybe something cool like a wall of Billy Bass/Jackalope talking mounts!


    Have you ever been to one of the big Bass Pros?(is the one in Mass. one of the "mega" stores?)

    I'd have to hit the web site and find something that they have that I couldn't get elsewhere and make an occasion of the trip. The vac. sealer or food dehydrator are great/useful but readily available and probably cheaper at Sam's or Costco, etc.

    Whatever you get I expect to see some pictures!

    If they had a price that compares to opticsplanet than I might get a scope. If not, a new rod and reel.

    I'd get a new knife and a better sleeping bag for starters.

    I'd probably spend it all on ammo, and a fixed blade buck knife because I don't have one.
