While it isn't a full size Cabela's it has a good selection and should have what you need. If you wanted to make sure just order it on line and have it shipped to that store and pick it up there. There is also a Sportsmans Wharehouse just down the road from Cabela's.
Yeah, not a full size Cabelas but it is still awesome. The mounts in there are rediculous... just like any other Cabela's. I was out there over the summer on a scouting trip and was able to swing by. They will have everything you need. One of the clerks told me a literally UNBELIEVABLE story about him freeing a mountain lion from a leg hold trap, hog tying it and with the help of his brother (they were both 13 years old at the time as well) backpacking it out of the hills and taking it to a vet. It was a great story though from a great story teller.
We were supposed to get a Cabela's down by my parents house in Wheat Ridge but it somehow got put on the backburner. Cabela's still owns the land but they have delayed building. I can not remember why. I think it had something to do with putting in a new overpass on I-70 and the neighborhood did not want it or something. I really hope they end up putting it in. It would be nice having our own "granddaddy of em all" on the front range.
A perk of majoring in wildlife biology in college is the plethora of hunting knowledge that you collect throughout your course load. One of the most important factors in whether an area can hold large quantities of animals or produce large antlers is forage.
Most universities, state schools and even community colleges offer basic botany courses and plant ID courses. Although it might not be feasable for the average middle age hunter to pay tuition and go back to college to learn hunting...
