Cabela’s Tulalip and the U.S. Sportsman’s Alliance will celebrate the growing number of women enjoying the outdoors with Ladies Day Out this Saturday, Oct. 5, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The bi-annual event encourages women to try out the latest outdoor aparel, camping gear, personal firearms and other products. The first 100 women to register at the store receive a free gift, and all women who participate in the event will be invited to enjoy the employee discount on all purchases until 1 p.m.
With more than 5 million women participating in shooting sports — an increase of 46.5 percent since 2001 — this growing demographic will enjoy classes including Waterfowl University for Ladies; Introduction to Archery; Ladies, Don’t be a Victim; shoot in the Daisy BB Gun Range; let an arrow fly on the Archery Range.
Non-shooting sports classes include Waders for Women — fishing from the bank with pro-staff; Dutch Oven Lovin’ cooking demonstrations; Flashy Fly Tying with the Federation of Fly Fishers; and Gold Panning.
