There are certain dates that outdoorsmen and women look forward to each year. The opening day of deer season, the trout opener, the first day of early goose season, Black Friday. Wait, Black Friday? What’s that doing there? There’s good reason to get excited about Black Friday, the day known for tremendous shopping deals for the holidays. Of course, we’re not talking about TVs or the latest toy. Head over to Cabela’s instead for some much cooler stuff.
Whether you’re buying gifts for others or giving yourself a treat, there’s good reason to fight the crowds the day after Thanksgiving. They like to call some of the best deals “doorbusters” and there’s some deals that might have you pushing on the doors a little harder.
You can find the deals Cabela’s will have at the store nearest you in the flyers on their Black Friday page. Based on the flyer for my local Michigan store, I’ve got some shopping to do.
Keep an eye out for one or two of the Cabela’s Logo Hoodies, seeing as how they’re half off. While you’re at it, a big camo recliner would look pretty good in the living room or den. I’m trying to convince my wife that a Serta Recliner in Superflage camo would look great in our house.
Need something more practical? How about 300 rounds of PMC .223 55-grain FMJ in a handy dry storage box? At $104.99, you might need two! Need the rifle to go with it? They also have a Smith & Wesson M&P15 Sport with a 30-round magazine, Caldwell mag charger, and hard case for only $599.99! In fact, the firearms and ammo deals alone, are enough to get most out of bed: $200 off a Beretta A400 Xplor shotgun, $50 off Ruger SR1911 handguns, and $40 off Henry Youth Mini Bolt-Action rifles for the young shooters in the house.
And let’s not forget cool accessories, like a Caldwell Lead Sled DFT for $119.99—that’s $100 off! There are massive savings on safes and steel gun cabinets, too. Scope deals, like $100 off a Zeiss Terra, $50 off a Nikon Prostaff and more. If you’re thinking binoculars would make a great gift, and they do, take a serious look at the Zeiss Terra ED 10×42, for only $349.99. That’s $100 off some amazing binoculars!
If you’re looking to get into the action camera trend, check out the deals on GoPro cameras. You can score some Cabela’s Bucks with select cameras. Cabela’s Bucks are cool because you can use them on your next purchase.
There’s lots of great deals for the angler, too. Fly guys can tie into the Cabela’s RLS+ combo. This is an amazing combo, especially when you see that it’s only $139.99. That’s $160 off! The deal lover in me wishes I had waited to buy mine, but the fisherman in me is so glad I didn’t wait. I love mine!
You can also grab a Quantum EXO PT Casting Reel for only $99.99. That’s only $150 off! Better get there early though. That deal only runs for five hours. I’m betting they won’t last that long.
But wait, there’s more!
Need another reason to get yourself up and in line in the wee hours of the morning? Be one of the first 600 in line by 5 a.m. and you’ll be entered to win one of over $15,000 in prizes at each store. Those prizes include five rifles at each store, scopes, coolers, binoculars, clothing, and more.
You’ve got to be there to get in on the action.
Online shoppers, don’t worry
The worst part of seeing how great the sales and contests are at Cabela’s retail locations is not being able to get to a store. Fret not, as Cabela’s has some simply amazing deals available online, and for many of them, you don’t have to wait.
Cabela’s has a selection of Pre-Black Friday Daily Deals. These deals change every day and are limited to stock on hand. In other words, don’t wait too long to pull the trigger on buying.
And if you’re bummed out that you will miss out on the awesome in-store giveaways, Cabela’s has you covered in a big way. Register for The Hunt For Bucks Giveaway for a chance at $1,000 to $5,000 gift cards given away daily. And on Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, they are giving away $10,000 gift cards!
Whether you’re shopping online or braving the crowds in the early morning fun and festivities of Black Friday, Cabela’s is a great destination for all of your holiday deal hunting. Better get ready, hunting season is here too! Better get them while you can. When my wife finds out how much I spent while writing this, I’m going to be in trouble. But I saved so much, and I even bought her stuff.
