I have no problem with Cabela's. I have their credit card and it's the only one I use. I pay the balance every month whether it's $100 or $3000, so I don't pay any interest charges. Also, I wait until I get one of those sale ads in the mail where they give you $20 off on a $100 purchase ,etc. Then I plan my trip down there for a Tuesday, when they give card members an additional 10% off. Another thing I do is save all my change and dump it in a Coinstar machine when I am planning a Cabela's trip. You can get a certificate for your change for several retailers without paying the Coinstar fee. And Cabela's is always one of the choices listed. I go to the Wheeling store a couple times a year, and pick up a couple hundred dollars in freebies. I just wish the reward points were better than they are. 1% is pretty shabby compared to some of the other credit cards available, like Walmart, Amazon, etc.

The last thing I bought from Cabela`s was Iron Ridge boots and will continue when $100 or less on sale. Great all leather/ gore tex /thinsulate(800 grams) 8 inch boot for the money. Just wish they made a 10 inch 1200 gram version.

I was clarifying (for those who may have thought your reference to "woke stupidity" was part of the original offshoring problem) that "woke" had nothing to do with it. Horrible policy-making that favored corporations - not American workers - was / is the cause.

I actually meant the word "friend" - but it seems you got angry about it. My comments were not an assault at you - they were just a clarification of what actually happened back in the 1980's - nothing more. Peace from here.

Cabelas bought it all bass pro, Gander Mtn, and might throw a random offer at dick`s they have pretty much cornered the market. However it twas 4-5 years back I went in to pick up a Pietta Navy .36 they were insistent I had to fill out a 4473, just for their records, I walked out and well never returned.

My hunting gear does not exceed the price of my brand new truck. But I swear by Kuiu as it is way better than Sitka. Sitka was bought by Gore. Sitka was founded by what is now Kuiu. Do the research.
Jason Hairston founded Sika, sold to Gore in 2009. Founded Kuiu. Both still quality gear......as a side Hairston commited suicide in 2018 and his wife runs KUIU now.

Used to get boots from Cabelas. Never had a problem. Bought a few odds and ends over the years with no trouble. Took my boy to the Hamburg store this past fall. He loved it.

I must be too young and stubborn, most of my camo was less than $100. I have a 1/4 zip pullover that I've worn for almost 10 years, cost me $25 when I bought it. I did spend $150 two years ago on a pair of Browning waterproof, insulated pants. Best investment I've made clothing wise. I don't know if I'll ever be able to spend $1000+ on hunting clothes

Used to love when Cabelas carried Meindl boots. As soon as Bass Pro took over they got rid of that line of boots. They got rid of a lot of the real good hunting clothing also.

A couple of us bought the wind sheer camo turtlenecks about 20 years ago from cabelas they were quality as we all still wear them. My buddy called me the other day and said they don鈥檛 make them anymore, and did I know where to get them? I can鈥檛 find em anywhere.
YES! I still have 2 of those turtlenecks. They are a ***** to put on because they don't stretch at all, but they are great once you get them on.

I still wear my Cabelas Meindl boots every season. By far, the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. They're warm and lightweight too. A few months back I looked on the Meindl website to see if they had anything comparable. Of course, they didn't.

Try Meindl USA they are Sidney Nebraska Cabelas former employees. The Cabelas Perfek hunter is now the Comfort Hunter. I buy from them and the boots are true Meindl.
