i really love and use both but for whatever reason it always seems i get better deals from bass pro. just bought a muzzleoader for 99$. cabelas had it for 149$ i know im probably in the minority based on this same question last year. the cabelas catalogs are certainly bigger but the things i didnt like is when i called the 800 number the woman said cabelas dont price match . when you buy items from bass pro-red head you get points saved twords next prchases. with cabelas i think you have to use there credit card only. i get my items in about the same time. some think one is faster than the other but i really think its where you live. i rarely have a problem with either.ive been to the cabelas store in hamburg pennsy and its awesome. the only complaint i have is with the bargain cave. if they think taking 20 cents off a product is a good deal i dont know what there thinking?all i saw was opened up crap all over the place at not much of a mark down. my loyalty is with who-s got a better price

I like 'em both but I generally order more stuff from Cabela's than BPS. I don't have to pay sales tax from Cabela's but do from BPS which can be a factor sometimes on higher priced items. They both have their places though. I have a Cabelas relatively close to me in K.C. Kansas and a BPS under construction in Independence, MO which is closer yet so life don't get any better for the outdoorsman than that!

I like the Cabelas brand better than Red Head/ Basss Pro. Both are good on returns but I find myself ordering from cabelas most of the time.

We have a store aprox 40 minutes from home and just enjoy Cabelas more. But I shop Gander Mountain too, they have some good sales at times.

Cabela's for hunting and flyfishing. Bass has never had what I'm looking for.

Cabelas. The Bass Pro guys don't seem to know as much about hunting like the Cabela guys do.

I have ordered from both and Cabelas delivers to me much faster. However, BPS did have a special with no interest and payments stretched over 6 months.

Bass Pro-
Yea the prices are about the same. But when you go to a Hunting Classic, you will realize ho much Bass Pro cares about your bussiness. I went to one this fall in St. Louis, and it was awesome.

We've got a Cabela's in KC so that's the place for me. I think I'd live inside it if they'd let me.
