Hunt Like A Girl...In Style!

Hunt Like a Girl… In Style!

By: Katie Cook

Being a women in the wonderful world of hunting we have had limited options for hunting clothing. When I first started hunting there was only men’s hunting clothing on the market. Even the smallest sizes didn’t fit correctly. As I got older the clothing options stayed the same. Unshapely, men’s hunting clothing was all I had to look forward too as a female hunter each season. I know hunting isn’t a fashion statement but I shouldn’t have to sacrifice comfort or style for the things I love. That's why I want to introduce you to "She" apparel, for women!

In the mid 2000’s Pam Zaitz was tired of wearing men’s and kid’s clothing when on safari and hunting. She wanted to create functional clothing that was fitted and tailored for woman. After months of design and testing Pam launched She Safari women’s outdoor apparel.  She Safari introduced the safari line and the response was so great that they introduced a line of upland clothing in less than a year and, the company started to focus on a broad range of camouflage for North American markets.

When Bass Pro Shops first received She Safari clothing and footwear in our store I was ecstatic! FINALLY we have clothing for woman. We only received a few pieces at first but soon began to carry more items. The camouflage items we originally received were the duck blind bib and jacket. The quiet material and thinsulate interior made them an item above any other product we had for woman. Soon we started to carry t-shirts and light weight long sleeve shirts with either a scoop neck or a v-neck.  Not only did we receive the camouflage clothing line but also some of the safari line. The safari line is a light weight, rip-stop material made for durability and functionality but still flattering to a female form. I wear the Adventure Skort at work in the summer months and it is extremely comfortable. I have received many compliments from my coworkers and customers when I wear it. She Safari also knows that no two women are the same so their clothing has a diverse size range from extra small – 2XL.  (SKU# 1998793)

Red Roses for Mom...or Pink Camo?

Hunting ChicAccording to the latest issue of Outdoor Life magazine, the number of women hunters has seen a 36% increase since 2001.  Almost three million women bought a hunting license in 2009 and 61% of gun stores reported an increase in female customers since 2009. 

Keeping that in mind...is the mother in your life a hunter?  Mother's Day is fast approaching...you have mere days left to find that special gift for the mother in your life...a little something that shows how much you care and appreciate all she does. Sure, Bass Pro Shops has great gift ideas like candles, birdhouses, and awesome clothes. If she's an outdoors woman, what about pink?  Reels

"Pink what?" you ask.  Pink anything!  Bass Pro Shops has experienced a steady increase in pink items in hunting ...from knives to handguns to bows to all types of hunting accessories.  She's not a hunter?  We have pink reels and pink tackle boxes for the mother who likes to fish...pink apparel, pink water bottles, pink coozies, pink flip flops, even pink pepper spray!  Some of our items incorporate donations by the manufacturer to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the fight again breast cancer.

So, flowers are nice. But, how about coloring your "I love you, mom" with a rosy shade of pink?

Fishing, Camping and Hunting or Just Partying!

Whether you are an avid sportsman or not, Bass Pro Shop in Harlingen has all the right gear for everyone. Walking through the isles of our store may instill a thought of possibly starting a new hobby or maybe thinking of  joining a friend who shares the same passions as a Bass Pro Shop frequent flyer. 

I... for example, never went boating until my dear friends Denise and Frank invited my husband and I to join them on their beautiful Party Barge they purchased in Bass Pro Shop. It was the most amazing experience I have ever had since living here in the Valley. South Padre Island was seen through my eyes like never before. Padre Island had warm waters and great coves where you're able to simply dock and enjoy the beautiful weather we have in southern Texas.

I am happy to say that with that one trip, I learned that even though your plans are to have fun you also need to have boat safety awareness.  My friends made sure that we had all the proper safety gear before heading out to the waters.  We checked our life vests, fire extinguisher, as well as plenty of goodies to keep us hydrated and protected from the sun. Now as I walk through our amazing store in Harlingen I think of all the things I need to start shopping for our next trip. I have already purchased my first Shimano fishing pole as well as my new OFFSHORE Angler Lures. Thank goodness our store has Columbia, and Word Wide Sportsman apparel for men and women. My husband I have already purchased our cool new fishing apparel thanks to the great section we carry. I also discovered the handy waterproof Dry Pack and Pelican Case for storing your valuables (cell phones and car keyless entry remotes)  when in the water, this is a must have item!   

Come and explore through our store your next hobby, and start making plans with your family and friends!  Make your experience a memorable one and come visit us at Bass Pro Shop in Harlingen.

The September Issue: Fall/Winter 2011

As you may or may not know, the September issue of any fashion magazine is the largest and most important of the year. It highlights all the new Spring collections- the trends, the styles, the colors, the everything. So how does this relate to Bass Pro Shops? It's not spring and this isn't a fashion magazine.

I had a woman stop me a few days ago in the ladies apparel section. She had about 3 sweaters in her hand and her eyes were wide. I knew what she was about to say before she said it, because I had heard the same thing a few times before. "You have women's clothes? You have cute women's clothes?! I didn't know!" We do, and not many people know that. Lots of husbands get in trouble for leaving this detail out when going to pick up fishing or hunting supplies, so I hear.

So I wanted to share with you some our current collections modeled by two of our associates and some trends for this fall/winter season.

oversize sweaters

Oversize sweaters are huge this season, paired with leggings or skirts. Try mixing textures- soft knits with denim and corduroy.

On Natalie (left): Sweater, Natural Reflections Reverse Stripe Sweater, $59.99. Undershirt. Natural reflections rib panel long sleeve tee, $24.99. Pants, Bob Timberlake leggings in tea leaf green, $38. Shoes, Natural reflections Molly sweater boot $24.99. Bag, Bob Timberlake shoulder bag, $175.

On Caela (right): Sweater, Bob Timberlake Jacquard Fair Isle Sweater, $41.97. Top, Bob Timberlake denim shirt, $29.97. Skirt, Columbia Vapor Trail Skirt, $35. Shoes, Natural Reflections Delaney Ballet Flat, $19.99.

Blazers

Blazers are very popular right now- from super structured ones with exaggerated shoulders to relaxed boyfriend shapes. Try a blazer in nontraditional colors, like this wool blazer from Bob Timberlake in pumpkin spice!

On Natalie: Jacket, Lole Suitable2 Jacket $80. Top, Bob Timberlake double face long sleeve button down, $44. Undershirt, Bob Timberlake gathered Henley $40. Pant, Natural Reflections zipper side khaki pant $39.99. Shoes, Natural Reflections Brightness ballet flat, $19.99

On Caela: Blazer, Bob Timberlake Boiled Wool Jacket, $78. Shirt, Natural Reflections Plaid Woven, $24.99. Undershirt, Natural Reflections Thermal Henley, $17.94. Pant, Bob Timberlake Slimming Jeans, $54. Shoes, Natural Reflections Delaney ballet flat, $19.99

Dressier options

In Arizona, we're blessed with mild winters, so your summer dresses and skirts can transition into colder temperatures with a sweater or some opaque tights. Take this as a opportunity to layer on some jewelry as well.

On Natalie: Dress, Bob Timberlake cowl neck sweater dress, $64. Boots, Natural Reflections Wiletta boots, $34.99. Ring, mixed metal Many Flowers ring, $16.99. Tights, stylist's own.

On Caela: Sweater, Bob Timberlake twist neck sweater, $29.97. Skirt, Bob Timberlake chambray skirt, $35.97. Shoes, Brightness ballet flat, $19.99. Necklaces, from top, Matte gold leaf necklace, $29.99, matte gold rings necklace, $24.99.

Sweaters

Colors like wine and rust, even purples, are very big for winter in a number of different textures- from burnout jersey to chunky knits.

On Natalie: Top, Lole sheer long sleeve burnout top, $44.97. Undershirt, Ascend Mobility long sleeve tee, $30. Pant, Natural Reflections Heritage pant, $39.99. Shoes, Sanuk Holy Moly sandal, $48.

On Caela:  Sweater, Natural Reflection jacquard sweater, $39.99. Top, Natural Reflections Flannel shirt, $24.99. Pant, Natural Reflection Ashton straight leg jeans, $39.99. Shoes, Natural Reflection Wiletta boot, $34.99.

plaids


Plaids are everywhere, and for good reason. They can be casual, dressy, on top, on bottom, fitted, loose, anything you want. Caps are also making a comeback and offer some structure to your headwear without being constricting or uncomfortable.

On Natalie: Shirt, Natural Reflections plaid woven, $24.99. Pant, Natural Reflections classic straight, $39.99. Shoes, Natural reflections Molly sweater boot $24.99. Cap, . Bracelet, Crisscross leather cuff, $19.97.

On Caela: Shirt, Lole Cecilia Polo shirt, $70. Pant, Natural Reflections Emma Bootcut jeans,  $39.99. Shoes, Ariat Legend boot, $179.99. Cap, Scala boiled wool cap, $19.99.

Coats

Yay coats. I'm obsessed with coats, even though I live in Arizona and coat season only lasts a few weeks instead of a few months. So I've chosen a selection of jackets that will get you through the chilly season and a few coats that will keep you super warm if you travel or live somewhere where it gets colder. Don't be afraid of color or prints in outerwear. It's a great way to brighten up an outfit

On Natalie: Jacket, North Face Denali Jacket, $165. Top, Share the Care Cureageous Tee, $19.99.

On Caela: Coat, Columbia Kaleidaslope Omni- Heat Jacket, $120. Top, Share the Care Camo Ribbon Tee, $19.99.

more jackets

I love both of these jackets, because they're super lightweight and comfortable. I also like that the Columbia jacket is fitted and feminine.

On Natalie: Jacket, Columbia Cozie Cutie Shirt Jacket, $54.97. Top, Natural Reflections thermal Henley, $24.99.

On Caela: Jacket, North Face Denali Jacket, $165. Top, Columbia Greenway T long sleeve striped crew, $19.97.

even more jackets

I love this Ascend jacket, because of the texture of the wool and the motorcycle jacket feel it has. It's warm, it's stylish, it's slimming- what more could you ask for?

The Under Armour jacket looks so lightweight and like a summer jacket, but it has zone insulation and keeps you super warm without being bulky.

The best thing about this Under Armour jacket?

It does this....

zip off sleeves

With 2 quick zips, the sleeves come off and it becomes a vest!

On Caela: Jacket, Ascend Wool Bonded Jacket, $92. Top, Columbia Greenway T long sleeve striped crew, $19.97.

On Natalie: Jacket, Under Armour Semi-Fitted Choice Jacket, $129.99.

Spring is here and the weather has finally broken for the most part, but you never know what kind of surprises Northwest Indiana can bring you. With spring turkey season right around the corner, April 27th – May 15th, local hunters are preparing themselves for all possible conditions. Portage Bass Pro Shops offers an incredible variety of Hunting Rain Gear & Hunting Rainwear for both men and women to be ready for our April showers that are sure to come.

Every hunter knows that the hardest part of hunting is finding the property and grounds to do so. Unfortunately, I can’t help you so much with the property aspect of the hunt, so after you have the hard part taken care of, apparel and equipment are the next steps in line. RedHead offers a range of his/her turkey vests and the majority are available on Clearance right now through the website.

 

Then you have a collection of calls, choke tubes, ammunition, decoys, blinds, boots, and can’t forget about the archery equipment for those who bump the challenge up a notch and get those gobblers as close as they can. All of these items are advertised in the Turkey Hunting Sale Ad that is running until May 1st.  

 

Among the typical “stuff” you need to take with you, please don’t forget your license! As an Indiana resident you will need a resident turkey hunting license and a valid game bird habitat stamp privilege. As far as any information on non-resident, lifetime hunting license holders, or land owner permits feel free to visit the Indiana DNR website and view the 2011 Spring Turkey Hunting Guide. Also, if you have interest in learning more on wild turkey population, conservation, restoration, behavior, characteristics, diet, and harvest reports check out DNR: Turkey and get educated!!

 

Good luck to everyone this season! Hit me with any questions, concerns, and I definitely can’t wait to hear about your successes out in the field. Pictures are always proof that stories aren’t being told too, so I’m excited to see everyone’s harvests! 

Good Hunting to all you guys and gals!!!

Ladies' Choice - Spring Outerwear!

Many women involved in the outdoors may not know they have everything they need right at their fingertips when shopping at Bass Pro Shops. Yes, we have all the hunting and fishing gear you need, but our abundance of apparel gets overlooked at times.

Every Bass Pro Shops gets the infamous line, "I've lost my husband", but what about us ladies? I know that when I am shopping through the store during my free time with my husband, that by the end of the shopping trip, he is usually looking for me! So ladies, get your shopping on, and explore what spring has to offer! 

Whether you're a country girl, or a city girl, Bass Pro Shops has everything you're looking for when shopping for that special vacation, adventure or even casual day to day wear! 

One of the key 'must-have' staples to purchase this spring is a nice light-weight water resistant jacket that is wearable for all outdoor occasions.

I chose the Ladies' Columbia Switchback Jacket last year and forgot how much I loved it until I was able to wear it again the other day during one of our freak 60 degree days up here in New York! It was like a new experience all over again! The great weightless feeling made me forget I was even wearing a jacket! This year we sell the Switchback Jacket in even more fun colors! 

There are many reasons why I love my Columbia Switchback Jacket, mostly because of how light-weight it feels, and that if I choose to layer-up underneath I can do so. This jacket does not shrink and keeps it's brilliant color through many washes. (Mine is "Corange", pretty snazzy huh?)

Corange Switchback Jacket



Here are a few great facts about the Switchback Jacket:

  • Water-resistant windbreaker
  • 100% nylon Hydroplus fabric
  • Elastic at the cuffs and hem
  • Full-zip front
  • Vents for breathability
  • Stowaway hood
  • Zip-closed pockets
  • Size Small to X-large


I couldn't tell you how many times I have worn this jacket in the spring while walking my dog. The fact that it has zip pockets is great for storing my cell phone, dog treats and keys. This is also a huge plus for anyone who likes to creek-walk or hike trails. The hood is a great addition to this jacket as well due to it's capability to hide right in the collar! You wont need that bulky umbrella when wearing this jacket in the rain. Coming from a woman who has long hair, and loves to keep it styled, this hood is just the right size and weight to keep your tresses dry and in-place!

Here is a short list of uses that I have for this jacket in Spring/Summer/Fall

  • Camping
  • Hiking
  • Boating
  • Walking/Jogging
  • Rainy days
  • Gardening

So the next time you come into our store, explore your options, let your husband find you, and don't hesitate to stop an associate to ask them how you can find what you're looking for this season!
