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 or call 423.463.4260

Halloween Celebration at Bass Pro Shops

Join Bass Pro Shops beginning Friday, October 24th, as we kick off a full week-long celebration of Halloween.  We will be offering candies to the Trick or Treaters, having free photos in the Punkin' Patch, putting on a Scavenger Hunt and a Costume Parade.  Halloween crafts will be available, as well.  Weekdays our hours of celebration will be from 5 til 8 pm, with the exception of Friday, October 31st, when we will start earlier at 4 pm.  Saturday, October 25th, we will start at noon and will be joined in Trick or Treating at 5 pm by many other stores in the Destin Commons!  The Commons will also be hosting many activities and an awesome costume contest!  That Saturday, October 25th, Bass Pro Shops will continue the activities until 8 pm!  Sunday, October 26th, we will celebrate from Noon til 5.

This year, we won't be hosting the Scout Fun Day or the Scouts' Haunted Tent, since that weekend falls on a date when all Scouts from the Gulf Coast Council will be attending Camporee up at Spanish Trails Scout Reservation near DeFuniak Springs.  They will return to our parking lot in October, 2015.

So, whether you are all "grow'd up" or still have some child in you, put on your costume and mischievious attitude, get a little spooky and come on down to Bass Pro Shops for some Halloween fun.

Fall Fishing Classic- 2014

So right now, things are starting to cool down with the weather but elsewhere things are heating up! Dove season opened for most of this country on Labor Day and many hunters are back out in the field. But what about our fishermen and their waters? Well seasons change and so does the fishing.  Luckily for you fishermen, we will have our Fall Fishing Classic again this year!

It will be Saturday and Sunday, September 27th and 28th. It starts at Noon and runs until 5PM.

Of course we will have a section for our younger generation, but this event will also focus on us adults.

For the kids we will be having a Beginning Fishing Workshop from Noon until 2PM. We will be doing seminars near our White River Fly Shop to cover the basics of “getting hooked” on fishing. During that same time we will also be doing Casting Practice right outside at our Back Pond. We will have fishing poles there, but feel free to bring your own if you want! There’s only one way to get to know your fishing setup and that is practice! From 1PM-3PM we will also have Color Your Own Tackle Box Crafts near our Fudge Department.

For the adults we will have three seminars each day.


1pm: Where did the fish go?

2pm: Which Rod and Reel?

3pm: Local Fishing Areas


1pm: Fall Fishing Tackle Box

2pm: Fall Weather Transitions

3pm: Preparing your Boat

 Sometimes the best tool in a fisherman’s tackle box is knowledge, and we aim to give you some!  We will also be giving away Collapsible Water Bottles to the first 25 Customers to attend 2pm Seminars each day.                                                    

Our very own fishy friends at our store will also take in some of the Fall Fishing Classic splendor as they will be fed both days at 2PM! If you have never seen this, be sure to “catch” it at least once! We had a great time last year and hope you join us for this one!
