Tell the wifey that it's like a $50 off coupon and not JUST a $50 gift card first and foremost! ;) Then buy whatever you want to buy!!! :D Or just order whatever and act surprised when the box arrives like I do! My wife doesn't even ask any more. Shit just shows up all the time. "What did you get now?!?" In her best exhausted, eyes rolling voice!!! LMAO! :D

In all seriousness, the best question is what do you need that you can get with that card and not piss the old lady off?

Thats the thing I don't really need any thing, that I can think of off hand.
Well then if I were you I would get something that I wouldn't normally spend by money on, something that is more of a WANT than a NEED. Or you could just pocket the gift card until you do actually need something.

You have to love the decision making process of buying hunting gear!!

I would save it till I needed something, or till I got more giftcards and could buy something bigger.
Or put it toward another pair of boots, so that I could rotate boots when hunting a few days in a row.
That's my next buy...another pair of boots.

JBrown was in this same situation as you a couple weeks ago....wonder what he got?

Amo... you can never have to much amo
(or a really good lap dance.)














I need a new Digital Camera. I'd put it towards that.

Hmm. I am leaning towards boots again for rotation. Seems you can never have too many shirts/pants for the different seasons. Additional or different decoys for coyote hunting wouldn't hurt my feelings. Fifty bucks though? Hmmm. Maybe hold off until after the season and stock up in the bargain bin on items you realized you could have used during the season. More goods for your gift card that way.

I spent 60 bucks to have the skull of my 2009 buck cleaned with dermestid beetles LOL... so my loving wife gladly accepted my cabelas gift cards as a trade off. :) I'm not worried though. She's such a tight wad that she won't be able to decide what to spend them on... then she'll forget about them... then when we make our annual trip to Dundee this fall they'll be mine again. :)

I thought about it today and I only have one trail camera and I am thinking of getting another trail camera, use that card to knock fifty off the purchase price and than I thought I might hold on to that card and save them and get some thing big down the road.
