I have about $350 or so bucks between Cabela's gift cards and Club points. Problem is, I can't think of anything I need. Plenty of gear, clothes, feeders, cameras, glass, etc., so I am taking suggestions. What is something you've found that is useful, but maybe not coming to my mind.

I've considered -

1) a new cooler, but can't really justify price or weight of Yeti.
2) a green/red feeder nightlight for hog hunting.
3) just spending it on a bunch of ammo, but don't really need anything.
4) applying it toward a safe, but honestly think I can find a better safe for cheaper elsewhere.

I went over last night and walked around the store aimlessly with cards burning holes in my pocket, but left empty-handed. Thoughts?

Buy a gun for a kid or grandkids. Doesn't have to be top of the line, just something that is theirs they can use and enjoy. Maybe a .22 or something.

Another option, buy something you can re-sell for similar value, and pocket the cash/spend it elsewhere.

It's not that hard. I can spend 350.00 in 10 minutes at Cabelas.
Just send it to me and I'll let you know what you bought when I get back!

Funny - I told my wife at dinner I should have bought an 870. Good suggestions all - thanks!

If you hunt from a box stand and don't have a Mr. Heater Portable Buddy Heater, drop $90 of your bucks on one.

I'd go with ammo if I were you

Save it and keep building points until you do need something.

Get that feeder night light and a $60 ice chest from Academy (if someone steals it out of the back of your truck then no BIG loss.) How about a dehydrator for jerky making?

This is the best advice, but is difficult to do. Make sure your gift cards don't expire.

Good pair of hiking/hunting boots?

If you're like me, invariably you will want/need a new scope for a rifle one day.

If you've ever given thought to processing your own game critters, now is a good time to get into the tools necessary & Cabella's has a good selection of starter & better tools to offer...

To 2nd NP's suggestion. The Cabellas's line of Euro scopes & Optics are made by Meopta and have Meopta tags on the ones I've seen...another good upgrade potential...

Upgrade your Hunting Boot's ...the older I get the more important taking care of my feet it becomes...

Given your "play money"...I'd be like a kid in a candy store..have fun...but IMO I'd buy something that will give you Long Term Value and not just some frivolous "shiney object" trinket 'cause it's Free.
