Wondered how long it would take once the New Bass Pro Shop opened. Lasted about a year. Word is they are still going to sell guns, ammo, and hunting clothes only. all trapping supplies ( no traps) at 50% off. 4 oz lures are $7.50, 1 oz are $2, pan covers, dips baits etc all half price. Picked up some tonight and will go back for more on Monday. Waders are 40% off but the ones I liked were originally $249. would like to have them at least 50% off. lol All fishing, camping, non hunting clothing, boots, shoes, ( basically everything except guns, ammo, camo clothing) is 40-50% off. This wasn't in my monthly budget!!!!

Don't worry. Going back monday and spending the coon and possum money. Even thinking about buying a half price caller to try some coon calling. Didn't see a possum call on the machine unfortunately. Guess I'll just have to carry a car horn and battery along with me too. lol

The Gander Mountain near me carries very little in the way of traps or trapping supplies. What they do have is like everything else they RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE!

Went to the one in quad cities a few years back. They decided to do only mail order reloading supplies. Not been back to one since.

Joe I recorded a really good Possum call its brings them running and works really good.
Just wait till this summer and find a road crew that is using a mill to grind the old Asphalt off the road and record the sound of it doing this!
They love the sound of freshly ground Asphalt!.....B.....

Its the one in Peoria. When i go in it seems about all thier business is in the gun area so makes sense to go that direction. Its a pretty big store so maybe they will make a shooting range area. if Illinois finally gets concealed carry they could be ready for an influx of customers who need the training. Trapping supply prices are high but not when they cut them to half price. 4 oz lures for $7.50 and minnesota trapline products predator baits for $3 a pint look like a good deal to me. Picked up 1.75 pan covers for $2 a dozen. Like I said. i'm going back for more

Brian,
Thats a really good idea. I bet a asphalt grinding machine would bring them in for miles.
