Cabela's Celebrates Pheasant Season with an Inflatable Wildlife Replica

Giant Inflatable Pheasant at Cabela's Retail Location

Cabela's Inflatable Wildlife Replica Tops Santa for Bringing in Sales

It happens every October.  Hunters converge on Mitchell, South Dakota for an event one local retailer says is bigger than Black Friday: the opening of pheasant season.  For Cabela's, one of the world's most well-known outdoor recreation brands, the Pheasant Classic equates to a tan and blaze Christmas. 

Positioned just outside their store on Interstate 90, the giant inflatable replica overlooks passersby as they zip to and fro.  This 40-foot-tall, lifelike bird shows all its vibrant colors and captures attention, due to its size and visual interest.

This tradition brings friends and family members back to the area year after year. Cabela's hopes to grab its share of the revenue pumped into the local economy during the event.

"We used this inflatable [wildlife replica] to raise awareness of the pheasant opener Pheasant Classic event," explains Retail Marketing Events Manager, Matthew Kettler.  "It was a big success! Customers were stopping to take their pictures with the inflatable pheasant and it helped draw in interstate traffic."

We knew it would be a hit.  Giant inflatable replicas are a natural fit with retail promotions (and mobile marketing, and stage productions, and …).

"The inflatable arch allows for safe and easy setup and takedown. People have raved about the arch and have made requests to have it at their events."

"Our tunnel was also a great addition to our pre-game tradition: the Wildcat walk. Our city shuts down three blocks of downtown, and we have hundreds of fans lining the streets with a police escort, while we walk to the stadium."

- Sam Baker, Head Football Coach at Waconia High School
