VHEA is set-up with Cabela’s for discounts on products purchases for hunter education
use only and NOT for personal use. Orders are screened based on products purchased.
If this is abused, VHEA will lose the discount privilege.
VHEA is currently a “level 1 account”. Discounts are based on volume of sales and
will vary from 0-10% based on the product. If as an organization we purchase over
$5,000.00 annually we will change to “level 2” and can receive up to a 15% discount.
In the event of a sale, you will be charged whichever is lower – sale price or discount.
To place an order, call 800-242-1596. 7 AM – 7 PM Monday - Friday CST. Internet
orders will not recognize the discount code, so orders must be called in. In-store
purchases are possible through the Customer Service desk. For all orders provide
the VAHEA account number 56625076 at the beginning of your order. The main account
mailing address is 1267 4-H Camp RD Appomattox, VA 24522; you will be asked to provide
a different address for shipping purposes.
