Cabela’s Photo Shoot at Our Texas Guest Ranch

Keep your eyes peeled for the summer edition of the Cabela’s catalog. You might recognize the scenery.

The marketing people at Cabela’s happened upon the BlissWood Website when they were searching for a location to photograph models for their summer catalog and fell in love with our Texas guest ranch instantly.

We hosted them for 10 days on the ranch and provided everything they needed to get the most memorable shots for their catalog, including our beautiful scenery, huge liveoaks, and a canoe (which you can now rent at BlissWood)!

We’re absolutely tickled that they chose to use our Texas guest ranch as the backdrop for their summer catalog and can’t wait to see the results.

What is Cabela’s?

In case you didn’t know, Cabela’s is the world’s foremost outfitter of hunting, fishing, and outdoor gear. They have over 30 stores in the US, including three right here in Texas as well as locations all over the world.

If you’ve ever been to one of their stores, you won’t soon forget the experience.

Think of it like a Disneyland for outdoor sporting enthusiasts. When you walk in the entrance, you’ll see a big hill that looks like the tip of a mountain with animals of various sizes all around it (stuffed, of course) and an aquarium filled with big mouth bass and trout and other game fish (these are the real deal).

We couldn’t show you any of the pictures we took with the models in them (you’ll have to wait for the summer catalog to see those), but here are a few behind-the-scene shots for you to enjoy.
