Gander Hilliard.....huh? 8/4/14 - (57 replies)
I don't remember the last time I was in there, but it could not have been that long ago. Talk about a much needed update. I literally felt like I was in the wrong place when I stepped inside. This isn't to say their selection is any better. It sure looks a lot better. It seems fishing has taken...
