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!

Spring Turkey Season has Begun!

With turkey season in full swing in most areas and just about to start in some, the search for the holy grail of turkey calls and decoys is also ongoing.
 

 

 

 

We have added quite a few calls this year at Bass Pro Shops along with new and improved decoys. The absolute most amazing decoy this year is the Avian line. This quality line consists of 3 hens in different poses, a jake, and a strutting tom. The hens are so lifelike that they really do look alive. One hunter even claimed to see a jake try to mount a decoy hen of his. If you haven't seen them yet, they really do look that real.

 

 

 

Equally improved is the RedHead Reality series of decoys. They also have fantastic features consisting of deeper color patterns and taxidermy eyes giving them a distinct advantage over older models.
 

 


   The jakes and strutters (toms) come in standard kits or kits with a stand that have a remotely controlled motion stake included. We all know from experience that motion of a decoy is what often creates a frenzy of excitement.

   As you search our extensive collection of calls for the perfect call, you will see some new items and some oldy but goodys. For many years, the basic box calls have changed somewhat, but not the principal or performance. Box calls are by far easier to use and are great for beginners.  Box calls may sound deeper or raspier depending on the type of wood and length, but most of all it depends on how you hold it and the pressure you use. Your duration, cadence, and volume will assure your success. Remember ...  louder is not better. Once a bird is located, going with a softer presentation, and most assuredly fewer calls, will bring that trophy in.


    Friction calls come in a basic shape with different materials used for the pot or carriage of the call. The surface is made of slate, glass, or aluminum. They all give different sounds and can be made to sound very lifelike. Again, practice makes a better caller. The striker is sometimes the key. They come in many shapes, materials, and weights. Usually, the strikers are matched to the call. But, if you have a few different ones (and you will after a few years), you will find your preferred pot striker. Reality series offers a 2 pack and even a 3 pack of different strikers. All make different sounds on the same calls.

    The mouth call selection is also one of the best you will ever find. We have single, double, and triple reeds. We also have a smaller size which is great for kids. These also help you not to have to cut down the edges so they will fit in your mouth.

                                   

We have over a hundred mouth calls, 35+ box calls and 30+ friction calls and many of the specialty calls advertised or seen used on T.V. If you need any help choosing just ask one of our many knowledgeable associates. We hope to see you soon in the hunting department!

First off, there's the 100 watt inverter. It converts 12v of vehicle power to 110v of household power. Included one 3 pronged AC outlet and one USB port.

If you are needing something a little more powerful, this inverter will power almost everything except portable vacuums, which require 500 watts and small coffeepots which require 600 watts, then you will be needing the 400 watt inverter. 12v of vehicle power is converted to 120 watts of household power and 400 watts when clamped onto the car battery. It has an internal cooling fan and an off/on button. Also compact, it measures 7"x4"x2" , weighs a mere 17.8 oz. and is available in the RealTree Xtra camo pattern as well. $59.99.

A New Way To Cook

In today's world, you can never be prepared enough. You can prepare for any number of things as dramatic as the dreaded end of the world or a natural disaster, a power outage or a hiking trip just to name a few. Today I'd like to hit on the last two and tell you about a few things that could and should go into the preparation of those two scenarios.

First, let's take a look at the Esbit Foldable Pocket Stove. This is an awesome little nugget to have around for hiking trips but also in your car for an emergency or even in the disaster kit at home.

The Nesbit stove comes with 6 - 0.5 oz solid fuel cube so right out of the box, you're ready to go. It's made of electrolytic galvanized steel, only weighs 12.7 oz. and is small enough folded to fit in your pocket. It has two heat positions for low and high (direct heat). A real steal at only $9.99!

 

Now, you're of course going ot need extra fuel. I have Esbit Solid Fuel Cubes. These come 12 in a pack for only $7.99. Esbit fuel cubes are non- explosive and non- toxic which makes them a great fire starter! They are waterproof and get as hot as 1300°. Depending on conditions, one little cube (0.5 oz.) can heat water to a boil in about 8 minutes and when it's burned out, there's nothing to dispose of and no residue. These would be a great addition to your camping trip just so your camp fire will light a little easier and also would put off a little bit of heat for a short time in case of an emergency.

 

Lastly, there is the EmberLit Foldable Wood Stove for only $39.99.

This thing is AWESOME! It assembles in seconds, only weighs 11.3 oz. and folds down to 1/8" (folds thinner than an iPhone5) so it can fit easily into your pocket! Fuel for it is always available as it uses just a handful of sticks or anything else burnable that you picked up along the trail. This little puppy is very durable and stable and strong enough to hold a cast iron skillet or a dutch oven. The best part.....? It is 100% made in the USA!

We have alot new and exciting items here at the store and I'd love to show them to you. 2014 Camping season is going to be a great one if you judge it by all the new gadgets we have.

Come see me....

Thanks for allowing me to share once again.
