About Bass Pro Shops Council Bluffs

Bass Pro Shops/Outdoor World, Council Bluffs
The first thing you need to do as soon as you enter our lobby is look up! Hand-painted murals from renowned artists depict scenes of Iowa’s heritage from the plains, forests, and hills. State and record wildlife mounts are displayed alongside local historical prints featuring early tourists and residents enjoying all types of sporting adventures. Giant exquisitely crafted outdoor themed chandeliers, made by Bass Pro Shops' own artisans, hang throughout the store.  Deer, duck, turkey, bear, bobcat and wolf tracks are imprinted in the concrete floor.

Departments
We are more than just a Fishing and Hunting store. Come to our store and see our other extensive departments like Camping, (that includes hiking, grilling and everything in between), our Gifts and Nature center (toys, hot sauces, wind chimes, music, etc.), Apparel and Footwear (with brand names like RedHead, Under Armour, Bob Timberlake and more), Marine (find electronics, boat accessories, GPS, etc.) Tracker Boats (fresh and salt water boats, big and small and even ATV's), Watersports (kayaks, rafts, snorkeling equipment, wake surfing boards, and all other fun water toys). The best part is that each department will come with a skilled and knowledgeable associate that will guide you thru your every need.

Aquarium and Fish Feeding
We have all kinds of fish in our 18,000 gallon aquarium, stocked with more than 200 fish native to the area from Large Mouth Bass to Walleye. This is no ordinary aquarium, the running waterfall and the natural wildlife amidst the boulders are sure to create an action packed visit. See our pros demonstrate some of our new products and their effectiveness, techniques and much more while they feed the fish. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12:30pm and Saturdays at 3:00pm.

Arcade and Shooting Gallery
Our store carries different types of fun arcade games but is our Uncle Bucks Cabin shooting gallery that takes the cake. Depicting a country cabin with wildlife and nature all around it, kids have fun shooting at the targets and seeing the interaction of all the items of this gallery.

Uncle Bucks Restaurant
