If you're an outdoorsy person, you already know how expensive all of the gear is.

Shoot, my hiking boots and hammock alone were easily over $300.

If you're in need of some new outdoor gear, you could win yourself a gift card to Cabela's.

Maybe buy yourself some new bibs, a scope or casting rod. It doesn't matter what you spend it on, the money's yours!

Win Cash From Your Catch

If you're going fishing anytime soon and you happen to catch a steelhead, brown trout, Chinook or Atlantic salmon, you might want to check the adipose fin.

If you find a clip on the small fin on the back of the fish, you may have won yourself $100.

The Michigan DNR is also asking individuals to participate in their muskie angle survey.
