They carry a decent selection of hunting and fishing gear. Decent selection of guns at great prices. Catch the clearance sales after each hunting season for some awesome prices.

If you have never been in one you owe it to yourself to go, IMO way better than BPS!
Just don't blame me for your new addiction!!

I was there when it opened this morning, got attacked by about 20 blue shirts asking to help me. Very nice store, I ws expecting to see some special sells, but I guess that will not happen until they have the official grand opening.

Thanks for letting us know about this new store. I've never been in one but have seen their ads & weekly sales flyer. I always see some good specials before Fall's hunting season. I did not realize they have been around so long for 74 years with HQ in Texas.

According to their web site, looks like the new store grand opening event is April 15-17 in a couple weeks. Glad to see more competition for Bass Pro Shops & Dick's Sporting Goods which should help consumers.

And Google maps show the it's located off I-75 South of Atlanta between Exits #216 & #212.

Borntohunt, you wanna see some deals wait till two weeks after deer season is over. Year before last I picked up a $99 set of coveralls for $30. Clothes, calls, scents, blinds and stands, and feeders all get put on clearance.


I love that store. Not only do they have excellent prices on gear I might need for hunting and fishing, they have a heck of lot stuff at good prices to get it on the plate. Great selection of outdoor cookery.

The sales flyer they handed out had some ten dollar coupons on the back so I used those. That store is AWSOME!

Well if you are looking for deals and not selection then Academy is your place. If you prefer a huge selection of about anything for hunting or fishing then BPS is the place. Academy felt like a large Walmart to me.
