Working at Cabela's for over a year during college not only made me hate bass fisherman, gun snobs who never fucking shot their rifle, and retarded hipsters who wanted to "camp" but didn't like the "cold and bugs to get in the tent" and wanted to basically live in a cabin for a day to get instagram photos, BUT it made me realize all the sweet pro programs I could apply for and still keep their discount. The companies that you apply through them and not experticity or whatever is great. Orvis, Fishpond, Simms, Kelty, Big Agnes, Rio/Sage/Redington, Osprey, and lots more all get me over 40% and my accounts are all still active. Lets me get some seriously nice camping pads and bags and waders for a huge discount. Otherwise I would still be like I was: a poor fag who loved the outdoors.
