Cabela's is welcoming the season with Spring Great Outdoor Days on March 16 and 17 where families can participate in lots of free activities such as Youth and Adult Turkey Call Contests.
Other interactive events include a laser shoot, wooden bow-making, and duck decoy carving and painting.
There will also be a spring fashion show and a variety of free seminars and workshops with topics that include the basics of reloading, bear-proofing your campsite and preparing Dutch oven meals.
In addition, Safari Club International will host a free trophy scoring event both days.
Also, visitors are encouraged to bring in firearms for a Cabela's Gun Library appraisal. Those who participate in the gun appraisal can also enter to win one of five $500 Cabela's gift cards. Entrants must be 18 or older to win and there's one entry per firearm appraisal.
Local conservation groups and others will be on site during the event including Skagit Muzzleloaders Association; Puget Sound Knappers Association, who share the ancient art of making tools out of stone; Safari Club International; and the National Wild Turkey Federation.
"Cabela's Spring Great Outdoor Days offers a great way for families of all ages to gear up for a lifetime of outdoor adventures," said Kevin Weeks, Cabela's general manager, in a prepared statement.
