That's a good deal.  No scheels or Northern tool up here, shipping and duty fees are brutal!

Rebelss, $109 U.S. would cost us Canadians approx. $140 with the exchange.  Then we would have shipping, duty, etc as someone else mentioned.  So for $139 Cdn at Cabela's , 10 minutes from our house, is a good deal.

Not to be a thread stealer..ok...maybe I am. Have you considered the Mr. Heater cooker/heater vs. the Buddy? For about $120 you can get the heater/base, 5# propane tank and the hose. A few differences...1) The Buddys go out if bumped or tipped so tough to move around if needed. 2) You can cook with the Mr. Heater w/o mods. 3) The space needed to use and transport isn't much different between the two. And 4) The cost and efficiency. The upfront cost of the 5# tank is around $50. But when you think about the number of those 1# grenades needed to heat for the day and or night...and the need to dispose of the damn things? Each bomb runs about $4 each. You can fill that 5 pounder for the same price as 1 ( I paid $3.25 to fill mine). And, on average, it will last most the day and night ran continuously...of course there are the variables...same as with the Buddys. I have used mine going on my 3rd season and have never had any issues. Just much easier and practical for me. Ok...you can have your thread back. ;)2

You gotta remember this is Saskatchewan, Canada. Big difference is prices. But I agree the Buddys aren't always the best option. I recently sold my Buddy and went back to the simple Mr Heater rosebud.

I'm of the same mind Buddy. Altho I used to work the fishing Dept. at Cabella's,  I used to buy from the Fish'N Hole also.  I bought a Marcum LX 7 from them. They brought it in from alberta for me so didn't pay HST and because of the cost, Free Shipping.  My employer couldn't even come close.  Like yourself, I will gladly pay an extra 20 or so just to support the smaller Brick and Mortar shop.  If 20 bucks is going to cause damage to me, then I better stop Fishing and a lot of other things.  Never quite Molson Canadian tho.  I fully support their Family. 
Fishing is good for your Mind, Body and Soul.
Actually catching a fish or two is a nice by product of a day well spent.

The next time that you don't feel like going into work, don't give your Boss any excuses (Hes heard them all), just say, "I'm going fishing, wanna come".

I agree Buddy. Or you can do what I do. Bring along my trusty Olde Coleman white gas 2 burner.  We do shore lunch with one all the time. 
I also hate those little Green Bombs. People leave them laying all over or just dump them down the hole.  I bought a re filler coupling but haven't tried it out yet.  I hear that they do work but don't get the one pounders completely filled up.  I have a Big Buddy.  I take my large tank and a few of the one pounders in case I happen to run dry.
