The best deals from Bass Pro Shops’ Gear Up Sale


Opening day is just around the corner—archery season may even be underway, depending on where you are—and the Bass Pro Shops Gear Up Sale will get you ready for your first day back.

The sale runs from now until September 21, with some fantastic deals. Most intriguing are a handful of packages that come with pretty good savings. So I’ll shut up and get to what we’re here for: the deals.

Rage Hypodermic Mechanical Broadhead, 6-pack with case

Easily the best selling deal, you can get a 6-pack of 100-grain Rage Hypodermic mechanical heads for $40. If you buy them in regular 3-packs, you’ll pay $90 for the broadhead and another $20 for the case. If you use mechanics, you should jump on this one.

It also helps that these are really good broadheads. Rage knows what it’s doing, and the NC + P Hypodermic was our favorite mechanical deer head. These broadheads on sale are the basic model, so you’ll still have to cheat with a shock collar. But at a price and with the level of performance, you probably won’t mind that.

Moultrie Mobile EDGE 2-pack

Another nice bundle is in these Moultrie Mobile EDGE mobile trail cameras. They’re solid cameras with good specs: 33MP images, 720p video with sound, 80-foot detection and flash, a 0.85-second shutter release. Apart from the sale, the real plus is that they are simple to install. Moultrie uses Auto Connect, which connects you to the strongest signal from major nationwide providers. No need to trick yourself into checking service and disconnecting SIM cards.

BlackOut Intrigue XS Compound Bow Pack

The final package is in this BlackOut compound bow. For $250, you get the bow, a Trophy Ridge 5-pin volt sight, Trophy Ridge Quick Shot mustache arrow rest, Trophy Ridge 5-point quiver, Trophy Ridge Blitz stabilizer, D-loop, and hand sling.

Now it won’t command any compound bow prices, but if it’s for a new bowhunter or you need a beater, this one will make you happy. It’s capable of up to 315 fps, has a highly customizable weight and length, and comes with many attachments. None of these packages will be the best bow ever, but appreciate it for what it is: a killer value.

SpyPoint Trail Cam

One of our favorite camera phones is also on sale. The SpyPoint Link-Micro S has great specs—0.4-second flash speed, 80-foot flash and detection, and an easy-to-use smartphone app—with the added benefit of solar charging. In theory, if you use this camera long enough, it will pay for itself, and it should do so very quickly since the regular model runs on 8 AA batteries. If you don’t mind using all those batteries, that regular model is also on sale for $80.

Cabela's Bow and Rifle Bundle

This isn’t a crazy deal, but the Cabela’s Bow and Rifle Pack is our favorite budget hunting pack. If you can get it for some discount, it’s a good buy. The only downside is that it’s only on sale when you buy it at TrueTimber Strata. Not a huge downside, considering the Strata is their all-around, mix-it-anywhere model, but a downside nonetheless.

Summit Viper Steel Climbing Treestand

A spin-off of the Viper Pro SD, which won Best Overall in our climber roundup, the Viper Steel is a capable climber. That steel makes this model cheaper, a little heavier, and less comfortable. It’s only a few pounds heavier, though, and if you’re careful, you shouldn’t worry too much about the noise. It has a nice seat and low profile sides to make it work for bow or rifle hunting.

Sig Sauer Buckmaster 1800 Laser Range Finder

Fast lighting performance ranging from 1800 yards, and good low light performance, what’s not to love? If you hook it up to a Sig Sauer Buckmasters scope, it has eight preloaded ballistic profiles that indicate which bearing point to use on your match scope. But without that extra help, you’re still getting a great range at a great price.

Vortex Diamondback HD 10x42mm, in TrueTimber Strata

Good glass is necessary if you are doing any type of dictation. These Vortex binoculars will up your glassing game. You get an HD optical system, multiple anti-reflective coatings on your glass, and multi-layered prism coatings for crisp, clear images. They are gas cleaned, o-ring sealed and come in a beautiful TrueTimber veneer.
