Bass Pro Shop Wildlife Museum

The Fish and Wildlife Museum (formerly the Hunting and Fishing Museum) at the Bass Pro Shop in Springfield is a similar collection of mounted animals, although it lacks the cave ambience of Call of the Wild.

The woman working the cash register told me that they once had two bears wearing hats fishing from a boat and other amusing displays, but some evil animal rights activist launched a media campaign against them. It seems to me that a dead animal in a natural pose is just as deceased as a dead animal wearing a hat and holding a fishing rod, but maybe that's just me.
