About the Store
Bass Pro Shops/Outdoor World, Pearland, Texas
When you enter the Pearland, Texas, Bass Pro Outdoor World Store, just about the time you get to the greeter's counter, turn around and look up. What you will see is a beautifully hand-painted map of Texas. Then as you enter further into the store, be sure you look up again. Check out the beauty of the outdoor artwork mural near the ceiling. It is also hand-painted directly onto the wall. Be sure you don't overlook the museum quality full body mounts from various mammals, fishes, and fowls, that are positioned all over the store. Don't overlook the diversity of landscapes representative of the local terrain that can be found at the four cardinal points of this great state, TEXAS. Visitors could expect to come upon a covey of quail being flushed from grasslands, a sentinel of turkeys standing guard in the thicket, or a small herd of deer in the big country of South or West Texas. Imprinted on the concrete floor throughout the store are the tracks of deer, bear, bobcat, wolf, turkey and raccoon. Using more than 3,500 area artifacts, antiques, pictures, mounts and memorabilia, the store becomes a living museum of Texas' hunting, fishing, camping and other outdoor legacies.

In our 30,000 gallon aquarium you will find Large Mouth Bass, Catfish, Carp, Red Fish, and "Allie-G", the 6 foot 10 inch alligator gar. She is of a species found all across North America, throughout the lower Mississippi River basin and along the coastal plain of the Gulf of Mexico. The alligator gar is the largest freshwater fish found in North America. They are often referred to as "living fossils" because they have retained some morphological characters of their earliest ancestors that trace back to the Early Cretaceous over a hundred million years ago.
Arcade and Shooting Gallery
On the second floor of the Pearland store, near the Camping Department, you'll find "Big Buck Safari" and "Sammy Sports Shooting USA" arcades. But what will really get your attention are the thirteen rifles in the "Shoot-N-Range". The range depicts a frontier ghost town with wildlife outside of the old weather beaten box-plank buildings. Kids shoot at the targets and see the interaction of all the items of this gallery. But be careful and don't get wet...
Indoor 3D Archery Range
The store also has a Bow Set-Up Shop and a 20 Foot Indoor 3D Archery Range. While in the Archery Department get one of the Archery Specialist to tell you the story/s about Pope & Young. Saxton Temple Pope (1875-1926), was a Texas son and father of modern bow hunting. Arthur H. Young (1883-1935) a companion to Pope was also a true sportsman and a consummate archer-hunter. On the wall behind the Archery Counter take note of the encomium to Fred Bear (1902-1988). Fred Bear was a great American bow hunter, bow manufacturer, author, and television host, who did much for the field of archery and the great outdoors. How many times have you got into the store elevator and wondered who some of the men in the old framed archery photographs were? Two of the men are Fred Bear and Author Young.
