My Bass Pro Shops Gift Card Choices

The other day I spoke of my Hubby's decision to entertain my interest in gaining some "Stuff" for my outdoor activities. He gave me a very nice birthday card with a magnificent Whitetail Buck on the front. (who knows maybe the only one I will get up close and personal with this year...) In addition, a gift card to a positively huge sportsmans supply store just down the road about a half an hour.

I want to share the "Stuff" purchased with my gift card this time around. There were so many things I wanted, so I prioritized a list. The Thermacell had been recommended to me by Arthur,at Simply Outdoors,over a year ago when I talked about being attacked by mosquitoes everytime I walk outside in the summer. SimplyOutdoors said...
I've never berry hunted before, but sounds like a good time. You should try a thermacell to keep those mosquitos away. They even make a cool pouch so you can carry it along with you.

I'll be giving the portable mosquito fogger a workout next summer for sure, but with the temps still being pretty warm it might get to work sooner.

As you can see I bought a Knight & Hale
Soft Grunter, a new tool in my arsenal to get the bucks to come closer.

It wasn't long after I got home I had the call out giving it a try to see what kind of sound it would make. I am going to have to listen to some expert callers to see what pattern of calling they use under what circumstances.

The only thing we didn't  do  this time was eat at  Uncle Buck's Fishbowl and Grill. We checked to see how long the wait would be...When we found out it would be an hour and a half until we were seated, it was a joint decision to seek an alternate eating establishment on this occassion. The next time we know we should put our names on the seating list before we begin shopping, to get everything accomplished while we are there.

Other excursions are planned so we can capitalize on all the offerrings made by our local Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World... ;)

The Thermacel does look neat... I might have to check into that too :)

Happy late birthday!

The more you get in the outdoors the more you seem to admire it.

I look forward to hearing about your excursions

Thanks for the plug, and I'm here to tell you that the Thermacell will be worth every bit you spent....or used on your gift card I should say.

Blessed - The Thermacell does look like a neat tool in limiting those nasty moquitoes. I have watched some hunting shows where they too put it to work.

Thanks for the birthday greeting. ;)

Rick Kratzke - You should see me run for the camera when I have four legged visitors and the disappointment I have when they don't hold still long enough for me to get a good picture.

I do have a renewed awe each time I am treated to their presence. We shouldn't take life for granted...;)

CDGardens said...

Rick Kratzke - You can bet I will keep people informed of my visits to whatever sportsman's supply store I decide will fill my future needs. ;)

Simply Outdoors - You're welcome for the plug!

Yes, from watching some hunting shows, where they implemented the use of the Thermacell, I don't believe my gift card expenditure will be in vain. ;)

That's a very pretty Birthday Card CD and I have never used the Thermacel....may have to get me some of that...can't wait for you to get the BIG ONE! :)

Marian Love Philips - Bet the Thermacel would come in very handy down by you, where the mosquitoes get to be as big as a quarter.

I caught some fabulous bucks with our digital camera the first of the month. It is to bad they wouldn't stand still so the pictures wouldn't get blurred. Decided I would try to get my trail cams to work again. I put one up this afternoon around the food plots. ;)
