Has anyone else had their local Walmart's selection and amount of hunting gear (from broadheads to clothing and all accessories between) reduced from previous years? Ours in Lewistown has a real limited and poor selection this year. And most of their clothing and packs are "Remington" brand stuff. Which interestingly, the packs are the same "FieldLine" brand they've always had but has Remington's name on it. The model name is even the same.
that kinda brand name stuff is all ways back door dealings... one company gets some and defualts on the order and others have a chance to get them cheap an such or some other kinda promotion that dosnet come around and they sell the order off... remember the guy that got a tree stand from them and remington wasent even apart of it.. it just gos to show you cant even trust the name of things these days the way the sell it... look at winchester knives and optics they are in no way connected with winchester but have the name.. same with field and stream clothing line made over seas for dickssporting goods... its a good selling gimic they see the name and relate too ther paper books counter part they have and take it on that how good the item is
but i remember ther being some thing about walmart stop carrying guns and a lot of related items in select areas were they couldent get the numbers they wanted.. this my be the resualt
Itís the Anti-Hunting pendulum continuing to swing.
Ever since Wal-Mart stopped selling guns and many bullets their hunting items have drastically declined. I was in one on Sunday and other then a few ball caps they had nothing orange at all and where they use to have almost 2 isles dedicated to hunting clothing and products there was less then a half isle.
They have more paintball paraphernalia then they do archery and gun combined.
Itís a shame since they were OK for grabbing those last minute things you needed for the season.
Donít let the sale on shot shells they are running fool you, they must be clearing out their warehouse.
our walmart in east stroudsburg pa also has about half the hunting items they used to carry..walmart is going down hill for supplies. K-mart has a better selection this was a couple of days ago Ithink it ewas friday I was in there.
