About Bass Pro Shops Cary
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 from our beaches, coastlines, forests and swamps that are all part of the great North Carolina heritage. State and record wildlife mounts are displayed alongside local historical prints featuring early tourists and residents enjoying all types of sporting adventures.
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 name brands like RedHead, Under Armour, Bob Timberlake and more), Marine (fish finders, boat accessories, GPS, etc.) Tracker Boats (fresh and salt water boats, big and small and even ATV's), Watersports (kayaks, rafts, snorkeling equipment, wakeboards, 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.
