Cabela’s was born of humble roots in 1961, when Dick Cabela devised a plan to sell fishing flies by running a classified ad in the Casper, Wyoming newspaper. Today, Cabela’s has grown into one of the world’s leading outfitters of hunting, fishing, and outdoor gear. As a member of the NRA Corporate Partners Program, Cabela’s has worked closely with the NRA over the years and supports a number of Association programs including the National Firearms Museum, Hunting and Wildlife Conservation, Disabled Shooting, Women’s Programs, NRA Youth Hunter Education Challenge, and The NRA Foundation. Cabela’s also participates in the NRA Add-a-Buck program and has been a significant supporter of Friends of NRA. Cabela’s support now exceeds more than one million dollars in cash.
