Sorry CTL but it's changed a lot. No more bargain cave, way less selection in clothing, less emphasis on hunting in general.
Just take a look at their website and you'll see as much or more stuff branded BassPro and Redhead than Cabela's. BassPro and Cabela's websites are now mirror images of each other with both sites selling both brands.
We used to get seasonal closeout flyers from Cabela's with some really great prices - haven't seen one since the takeover. Their sale flyers now have very, very few things even approaching a bargain.
We used to go to the closest one (about 100 miles) fairly often, usually made some excuse to be near it so we could stop in! Last couple of times I was there (after the takeover) I was ready to leave after about 20 minutes, as compared to the "old days" when I could wander around in there for hours. Not sure if I would bother to stop in now even if I was next door.
BASSPRO RUINED IT!!!
