Springtime is Here! Is your Patio Ready?


With Springtime quickly approaching, its time to set your patio space up right.  You have to decide everything that needs to be included to make it both decorative and functional for your family.  Personally, I would like to include a fire pit, a grill, some seating, and a little dog bed for my little man. 

With the grill being the largest part of the patio, you must decide where it will go. Once thats decided, its time to figure out how many burners you would like. Is it just going to be you and your signifigant other?  If so a 2 burner would be alright. Maybe it'll be used for small get togethers so a 4 ot 5 burner would suit you. If you plan on being the big man on campus you should get a 6 burner grill and enjoy enough room to feed everyone in the neighborhood! I personally like a grill just large enough to take care of the family and maybe a couple friends. So a 4 burner works perfectly.  

Next comes the seating, would you like a table and chairs for an eating area? Or maybe a simple lounge area with a few oversized wicker chairs and ottomans. I have a table set up with a few chairs and thick cushions for comfort.  I also treated my cushions with Sawyer Permetherin to help keep pesky critters aways from the area.

So swing into your local Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World and let one of our camping associates get you all set up to enjoy and entertain from your home all Spring and Summer long.

How to save a Life....By Simply Cleaning Your Water

Did you know.....that 43% of the global population is without clean drinking water?

While we have our kitchen sink to wash dishes, bottled water or Brita Water Filters to drink from, and a bathroom equipped with a shower and tub to bathe and be clean we do not realize just how precious clean water can be. We often take it for granted until we are hit by a natural disaster, are deployed to a foreign country to defend freedom, or take a vacation and camp.  Well have no fear, whether you are looking for a water filter to take on deployment, preparing for a natural disaster, planning on spending a lot of time outdoors, or would like to donate to a someone not fortunate enough to enjoy the luxuries we have in the US; we have the PERFECT new item here at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World.....The Lifestraw. 

The Lifestraw is a great purchase for anyone.  It filters at least 1,000 Liters of contaminated water at a high flow rate, is compact, and can be stored anywhere.  Plus while water is a need in life, if water is not clean before drinking an individual can become extremely sick.  Never fear though with the Lifestraw, it filters 99.9% of waterborne protozoan parasites, filters 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria, contains no chemicals, and reduces turbidity by filtering particles of approxiamately 0.2 microns.

So no matter what the reason, whether you are helping others, getting ready for your next BIG adventure, or simply just being prepared for whatever Mother Nature will throw your way, swing into your local Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World and let one of our awesome and knowledgable camping associates get you all set up with the amazing Lifestraw!

More Fish!

                          more fish

Here at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, we love to give back to organizations in our community helping to make a difference with conservation efforts. This month we are the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation with their More Fish Campaign.

This February, Bass Pro Shops is partnering with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to raise funds for the More Fish! Campaign. Over 120 freshwater species have gone extinct since 1990 and nearly 40% of freshwater fish are at risk of extinction. The More Fish! Campaign promotes fish habitat protection and restoration. You can show your support by donating $2 at any of our registers this month and as a bonus your donation will double as an entry form into the More Fish! Sweepstakes where you will have a chance to win a $500 Bass Pro Shops Gift Card. Official rules are at customer service.

So swing into your local Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World and help make more fish for tomorrow!




Valentine's Day is Quickly Approaching!

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, everyone wants to get that special man in their life the best gift ever and still make it cute.....lol. Well here at Bass Pro Shops, we offer plenty of ways to get the best of both worlds. I have a friend whose anniversary, his birthday, and valentine's day all fall within two weeks of each other. She was racking her brain to figure out what to get him for all three that would be perfect without breaking the bank. After a little bit of thinking, she decided that a Bass Pro Shops giftcard is perfect for any occassion so birthday prasent done.

Now that the birthday present was done its time for the anniversary gift.....http://www.basspro.com/Plano-1258-Tackle-Box/product/10205331/, a plano tackle box is the perfect gift for any fisherman. With the anniversary and birthday taken care of, it just left Valentine's Day and well shopping for a man for valentine's day is not exactly the easiest thing to do.  It's not as easy as grabbing a box of chocolate, a dozen pink roses, a cute stuffed pink teddy bear or monkey, or a pretty sparkly piece of jewerly.

As she was leaving the store and walking past our huge rack of Uncle Buck's candies it hit her.....fill the tackle box with candies that would closely resemble fishing equippment. She then filled her cart with lots of yummy candies to include....sour gummy worms, twizzlers, goldfish, laffy taffy, salt water taffy, and of course it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without yummy little Hershey's Kisses!!!!! So swing into your local Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World and find everything to get the perfect gift for the perfect man.....
