Additional Ways to Shop: Fishing 101
About Bass Pro Shops-Olathe
The store offers 135,000 square feet of outdoor excitement including the area's largest selection of quality gear for fishing, hunting, camping, boating and marine. Much more than a hunting and fishing store, however, Bass Pro Shops also offers equipment for hiking, backpacking, outdoor cooking and more. Shoppers will find outdoor apparel for men, women and children, along with a fine selection of outdoor, casual and athletic footwear.
When you first enter the store you will be awed at the visual appeal of the store. The fieldstone fireplace along with the wildlife mounts throughout the two level store, from the lobby, to the ceiling, they keep your eyes rolling through the store. Once you have made it through the lobby you can follow animal tracks on the floor that lead you through a variety of departments. We also have a wildlife waterfall that drops down and fills the 18,500 gallon Fresh Water aquarium. The other side of the waterfall splashes down into our 7,000 gallon Canyon Stream that is filled with rainbow trout and ducks.
Whether you are an outdoorsman looking for your gear, a nature enthusiast, or just a shopper, Bass Pro Shops-Olathe can be a shopping destination for everyone!
Free Outdoor Adventure Tours
Have a school, daycare, church group or organization that would like a tour of Bass Pro Shops? We conduct free tours of the store for small groups interested in the outdoors. We bring the outdoors in. It is a wonderful opportunity to see and discuss the wild animals in a way that many people may never have the chance to experience. We try to instill the importance of wildlife conservation while providing you with a fun experience in our store.

2013 KS CONCEALED CARRY CLASSES
SATURDAY DECEMBER 14
Bass Pro Shops Olathe offers the official training courses for law abiding citizens to qualify for their Kansas resident and Florida nonresident concealed carry licenses. Taught by certified instructor Kay Curtis, the course includes lecture, participation, demonstration, shooting a target and a written exam. The $150 tuition includes a $20 gift card to Bass Pro Shops, plus a passport photo and certificates of completion in both the Kansas and Florida formats. Residents of any state may take the course to qualify for the Florida permit, but only Kansas residents will qualify for the Kansas permit.
Classes are held in the Conservation Room of the Olathe store beginning at 8:30 a.m. and finishing at a private outdoor shooting range at 6:00 p.m.
On each Kansas class date from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. is an optional 1-hour Florida Paperwork Seminar. The tuition of $45 covers highlights of the Florida statute, the application and fingerprint card with instructions for completing them in class, notary services, passport photo, and a pre-addressed and postage paid envelope to mail the application packet to Florida. The Florida nonresident concealed carry permit is for 7 years, is portable when moving from state to state, and appeals to Kansans who want extra states added to those who recognize their Kansas license. Residents of Missouri may choose the Florida permit instead of the Missouri one.
Find more details and pre-enroll on the EQUALIZER web site www.EqualizerLLC.com. Or request an enrollment form by calling Kay Curtis at (913) 492-7264 or e-mailing email@example.com. Pre-enrollment required for all classes.
