SCARBOROUGH — Cabela’s in Scarborough is kicking off the fall hunting season with Fall Great Outdoor Days, Aug. 18-24.
This annual event has become a required stop for Maine hunters and fall fishermen as they gear up for the upcoming season. In addition, Cabela’s has teamed up with Famous Dave’s BBQ to raise money for Maine Operation Game Thief during this year’s event.
Cabela’s and Famous Dave’s invite all visitors to Fall Great Outdoor Days to enjoy a BBQ pork sandwich, bag of chips and a Pepsi for only $4 on Aug. 20.
