I think if Cabelas had to do it over again they would not open the store. Chicago firearm policy, taxes, politicians, etc. etc. do nothing to promote the outdoor's. Nothing personal, just my view. I have friends from Naperville, Batavia, Joliet that come down here to hunt on a regular basis. They all hate that area but that is where their livelihood is (for now). I know 3 that got out.
I wouldn't think anyone would take it personal. I'm sure we are all aware of the gun policy our state provides or lack there of, which ever side we choose to be on. Where is "down here"? The Chicago suburbs can provide great hunts. Actually, there is plenty of fowlin around the Northern zone. If there wasn't, weekends would be quite and I would have permission to every field I wanted.
