There's A Snake In My Boot!

Unless you're a cute animated toy from a Disney Movie, this is NOT something you want to be shouting in the middle of the woods. Snakes are everywhere you hunt, hike, or travel and can have quite the bite when not properly prepared. (There is no bark). Looking towards this fall, it is important to use the right protection when walking through tall grasses, forests, and leaf piles, to avoid snake bites. At Bass Pro we carry various lines of great snake protection. The two I will talk about is the ForEverLast Snake guard shields and chaps.

 

The ForEverLast Snake guard shields are one of our top sellers at our store for snake protection. They are knee length and are made with adjustable straps to fit any size leg. The chaps themselves are made of a tough 900d nylon composite shell and high density polycarbonate insert. These are $39.99 and exclusively printed in Realtree APG. You can find these items online here http://www.basspro.com/ForEverLast-Snake-Guard-Shields/product/12020205011219/

The second pair we carry from ForEverLast is the Snake Guard Chaps. These chaps are a lightweight canvas like material that protect from briars and bushes and snakes from the knee down. The snake protective portion is constructed of a firm nylon.  The chaps adjust around the calf and belt loop for a proper fit. These are featured in APG and are priced at $49.99. The link for the item on our website is http://www.basspro.com/ForEverLast-Snake-Guard-Chaps/product/1304260626449/

Make sure to check out our full line of snake protection products at Bass Pro ranging from chaps to full length boots in our footwear department.

Cornhole for Conservation

 

 

Last year I had our Regional Director from NWTF come to me with an idea for a fundraiser that was different than anything he had ever done before….. A Cornhole Tournament.  For our first tournament we had around 40 teams – an outstanding turnout I thought. We had such a great time we thought hey let’s do it again!

This year we have changed a few things- we added a social team division. That way everyone regardless of their comfort level is welcome to come have fun and help raise money for this conservation group.

What is the NWTF?

The National Wild Turkey Federation is a national nonprofit organization that is the leader in upland wildlife habitat conservation in North America. They are dedicated to the conservation of the wild turkey and the preservation of our hunting heritage.

So for a great cause join us at Bass Pro Shops in Sevierville on Oct 18, 2014. Registration will begin at 8 am and bags start flying at 10 am.

There will be two divisions to compete in this year:

  • Competitive Cornhole Teams (Open division)
  • Social Cornhole Teams

 

 

For any questions or to register please contact: Tim Yates at tyates@nwtf.net or call 423.463.4260

Don't Hate Me Because I'm a Little Cooler

 Get it?? It's a "little cooler"!!

 .....Okay, quiet the crickets.

You don't need to be a weatherman to know that this summer has been HOT. With all the things to do outdoors, such as camping, hiking, and fishing, it's important to stay well hydrated! The best way to pack up cold drinks would be in our Red Head insulated coolers! They come in an assortment of shapes and sizes and are an extremely cheap price!

The largest cooler is our 24 can cooler. It is large enough for 24 cans, or even cold food to take on a large family picnic! This time of year is perfect to head up to The Chimneys, in our mountains, and have a fantastic day enjoying and exploring nature. Make sure to pack all the necessities for a trip like this (and you're allowed to forget your cellphone for the day) This cooler is also a perfect buy at 14.97!

Secondly is our "little cooler"; the 8 can RedHead branded cooler. It is a much smaller cooler as it holds just 8 cans. The unique thing with this cooler though, is the fact that it can double as a perfect lunchbox! Whether it be for your children to pack their PB&J's in and carry to school or for that perfect work sack (like most of our own associates use), it is the perfect traveling size and still keeps all your items cold! This munchkin bag is only $8.97!

We also have the 6 can stick cooler. This cooler features a carrying strap and elongated insulated cooler to keep your drinks cold and is ideal for hiking! This Cooler is $7.99!

 

Last, but definitely not least, is our wonderfully crafted belt cooler. Yes, it's a belt with insulated cup holders. Not sure how else you can top this..really..how?? This nifty cooler is $9.99 and features 6 can holding capacity. It is a hit at parties and is rated 5 out of 5 stars!

As one of our top reviewers wrote online:

"I call it the heine-belt. It does keep my canned beverages, both regular and adult, cold, even when opened. It has kept them cold for about 2 hours, that is how long it took to finish them. Not only does it keep drinks cold, it is a great holder for the open ones, no more looking for a place to put them and you don't have to worry about knocking it over. Would make a great gift."
 
You can check out all these awesome coolers on our website here: http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Navigation?storeId=10151&catalogId=10051&langId=-1&searchTerm=redhead+cooler or swing by your local Bass Pro Shops and talk to one of our members of staff in the hunting apparel department!

Geronimo!

    So maybe that's the last thing you want to be yelling as you jump from a bridge held by only a piece of bungee cord. It's not exactly an everyday word (unless your The Doctor)

But it is something that many thrill seekers like to do- jump. Jump out of planes, jump off of bridges or jump out of a cake. There are TONS of adventures out there for the wild spirits that grace this planet- therefore, there are many things that can go wrong on such dares. Such as getting lost, or being trapped. In these instance it is smart to have something that can come in handy pretty quickly! A growing popular item is emergency paracord threaded throughout clothing. It comes in a variety of colors, and items such as bracelets, hats, belts, and even knives.

  Our two items in the Hunting Apparel department are the RedHead Camo Paracord cap for 14.99 and the Straw Paracord Hat for 24.99. Both these hats feature and extended paracord rope with a clasp that attaches straight to the hat. At Bass Pro Shops we also sell a multitude of color Paracord bracelets ranging anywhere from 14.99-17.99 as shown below:

You may be asking yourself, "How do I even use something like this to survive?" The Site Survivor Geek breaks down multiple uses for the simple string! You can see the list at their website here:http://www.survivorgeek.com/pages/Emergency-uses-for-Paracord.html

Bass Pro Shops carries a wide variety of Paracord and devices to be used with them. Emergency Paracord is becoming an item that everyone should carry on them because of the vast things it can do, and it may just save your life.

Just remember, the next time you're cliff diving, skydiving, or on a wildly crazy adventure: look down at your paracord bracelet, and shout geronimo!

Lewis and Clark Have Arrived At Bass Pro!

In the last couple of weeks, we have received several new items from the Lewis and Clark line that will make your life and your travels so much easier. Unfortunately at this time, they are only available in store. Hopefully, I can manage some pictures, to give you a visual of what I'm talking about.

First, let's talk about laundry....everybody LOVES to do laundry...especially when traveling....NOT! Think about this... by doing your own laundry in your hotel room, you can save a ton of money. But instead of hanging it over the shower rod, hang it on the Lewis and Clark Latex clothesline. It's compact and flexible, in fact it will stretch up to 6 feet and with the two included suction cups, it will attach to almost anything with a smooth surface. Don't want to hang it in the shower? With looped ends, you can hang it around door knobs, bed posts or whatever you can find! Laundering on the go is so very affordable, especially at $6.99.

Do you worry about electronic pickpocketing? I saw on the news how your credit card number can be stolen without it ever leaving your pocket! The next couple of items I have for you, prevent that from happening.

Let's look at the RFID Hidden Travel Wallet. It's made of soft, ripstop nylon with one outer zippered pocket that hides three inner zippered pockets. It's shrink, smell and mildew resistant and hand washable. This wallet hooks to your belt, then safely tucks inside your waistband to be hidden out of sight. It's only $9.99.

The RFID Neck Stash is a bit more at $15.99, but worth every cent! It works just like the Hidden Travel Wallet in that it protects you from electronic pickpocketing. It has multiple compartments and with the adjustable strap, you can wear it round your neck or across your shoulder. Either way, you can't go wrong!

The RFID Waist Stash follows closely along with the Neck Stash with it having multiple compartments and an adjustable strap to 50". The price is the same and the only difference.....? You wear this one around your waist....

This is just a brief look at what Lewis and Clark has in store for us. There's so much more we have that I want to share with you. Stay tuned!

As always, thanks for allowing me to share with you.

I'll see you soon!
