Sporting Goods & Camping Gear:
Many places carry outdoor gear that are not sporting goods stores. From the general market to the big box retailers. Certain smaller stores may be more geared toward fishing, hunting, or team sports. Other big box stores carry a whole aisle of camping basics. Large scale drug stores can stock outdoor gear, usually only seasonally in summer.
Small cities and towns in California often have a few independent sporting good shops; hunting stores, bike shops, kayaking or backpacking. Rural mountain communities have markets, which often cater to the outdoor enthusiasts w/ fishing bait, headlamps or propane.
