In September 2015, the new Bass Pro Shops store opened in Rocklin, California — only a short 15- to 20-minute drive from our house. Since the Big Guy is a serious bass fisherman, he had already been a customer; and one of the regular features of our December trips to Texas was always a Christmas Eve visit to Bass Pro Shops.
This past Christmas it wasn’t necessary to visit the store in Grapevine, Texas. Instead, we decided to check out the big Cabela’s outlet, located in Fort Worth.
The rear of this huge building looks a bit like a natural history museum, featuring most of the species targeted by hunters — and not limited to the state of Texas.
An airplane? Why not?

And a bronco bustin’ cowboy out front!
