Kick-off the Season with these Great Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Deals
The holiday season is a great time to stock up on some gear you’ve always wanted or to help you bring a little more joy into a loved one’s life. Whether you’re shopping for yourself, your friends, or your family, Bass Pro and Cabela’s have given everyone access to some early holiday deals well in advance of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. While there are literally hundreds of products to choose from on their site that is on sale, I thought I’d showcase just a few of the best items they have on the list (for me personally) that I think would make for great grabs before the holiday rush. Bass Pro and Cabela’s have a great lineup of shooting supplies and accessories, winter clothing, reloading supplies, camping supplies, and much much more.

1. Bushnell Prime 10×42 Binoculars and 1300 Rangefinder Combo
If you’ve never had a good pair of binoculars or even a solid laser rangefinder then you’re missing out on a winning combination for the hunting season. While everyone knows that using a laser rangefinder to dial in your shots for hunting is key, binoculars provide you with an equally great advantage of not increasing eye fatigue by letting you view downrange with both eyes. Bushnell’s 1300 rangefinder and their Prim 10×42 binoculars both feature IPX7 waterproofing and are perfect for nearly any hunting application.
Pros/Wateproof and durable
Bottom Line/Great pairing if you’re looking to get yourself or a friend some helpful hutting accessories.
2. Masterbuilt 30” Digital Electric Smoker
Once you’ve bagged your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner you’ll need a place to cook it and the Masterbuilt 30″ Digital Electric smoker has enough room and power to cook for the whole family. Currently about $70 off, the Masterbuilt smoker features digital controls, a convenient plastic handled wood tray for adding in your favorite flavors, and can have the benefit of being electronically powered meaning you don’t need to constantly check on the temperature and can focus on time with friends and family. Other cool features include a fully-insulated smoking chamber, air damper for controlling the amount of smoke in the chamber, and of course a water pan, drip tray, and grease tray for reducing the amount of time spent cleaning after cooking.
Pros/Worry free way of smoking game meat and other meats
Cons/Feels like cheating when compared to traditional smoking methods
Bottom Line/Perfect way to prep food without the hassle of constant monitoring

It’s kind of off-season for a lot of fishing right now (especially in the northern regions where you swap out your boat for a shed) but its never a bad time to pick up some new fishing gear while it’s on sale. The Lowrance Hds-9 Carbon GPS fishfinder is a cart combo unit that helps you track water depth, find fish and keep track of where you find them in one convenient dash-mounted unit.

Featuring a load of patterns and options (including some mossy oak options)these blankets are perfect for stocking in your deer camp, car, trailer, RV, or cabin in the woods. These blankets start off at $9.97 and go up from there.

5. GARMIN HANDHELD AND WEARABLE GPS’S
We’ve gone over a list of some of the best handheld GPS units here before and a couple of the ones from that list are currently on sale. However, if handheld GPS units aren’t your thing then Bass Pro also has great deals on wrist-mounted ones as well that provide you with reliable GPS guided navigation and have great battery life. You can expect to save up to $50 on most of these units with more deals sure to come down the pipeline as we get closer to Black Friday. These are great to have with you when you’re in unfamiliar territory either hunting or hiking!
Pros/Keeps you from getting lost
Cons/Runs on batteries
Bottom Line/Great to bail yourself out of getting lost or for marking your newfound favorite hunting spot
6. Huge Boot Sale – Up to 50% Off Hunting and Rubber Boots
A good pair of boots can be almost as useful like a brand new car. Whether you’re an avid hunter needing a pair of winter boots to keep you trudging through to the deer stand or blind, or you’re an intrepid hiker out to conquer the winter elements then Cabela’s has a great sale on a wide lineup of both hunting and rubber boots for both you, your spouse, and your children!
Pros/Sales on both Insulated and Rubber Boots

7. Primos Trigger Stick Gen 3 Shooting Sticks
Shooting sticks are a recent discovery for me and they’ve turned out to be far more valuable out on the flat range than I had ever anticipated. The Primos Gen 3 series of shooting sticks feature monopods, tripods, and even two-point gun rests for even more accurate shots. All of the Primos lineups are made from durable materials and feature a simple trigger-style height adjustment and can even be paired with your favorite spotting optic.
Pros/Adjusts height with the pull of a trigger, Contoured grip with no-slip backbone, Quick Detach Yoke System
Cons/Has to be carried around with you on the hunt
Bottom Line/Great for regions and areas where you won’t have access to a more stabilized shooting position
