Wildman Phil, Cabela's celebrate great outdoors, wild animals

Posted: Updated:

Spring is in the air, and this weekend Cabela's in Glendale is celebrating the Great Outdoors with a free family event featuring fishing, outdoor workshops and a show with Wildman Phil.

The event will run all weekend long with a full schedule of workshops and activities. From Dutch oven cooking demos and fly casting classes to interactive wildlife presentations, the Great Outdoors Days are packed with activities for any outdoor adventurer.

Wildman Phil joined Good Morning Arizona this morning to show off his crew of critters, including Amos the alligator, Patches the python, Stumpy the tortoise and Scooter the hedgehog. Stumpy is one unique tortoise — he gets around on three legs and a custom wheel. The wheel is designed to break off as Stumpy grows so it doesn't restrict him, and Wildman Phil and his team make him a new one every time.

See Wildman Phil and his friends at noon both days at Cabela's Spring Great Outdoors Days this weekend.
