Cabela's is an American staple in outdoor gear. Beginning in 1961 selling fishing flies, the company has grown to sell outdoor gear of all types, and currently ships to over 120 countries. Stores often become attractions when they are built, incorporating taxidermy, gun libraries and ranges, and even a restaurant in some cases. For those who respect the American camo movement, Cabela's represents a mainstay in the outdoor equipment market and would fill a gap in Manhattan retail possibly nothing else could.
