CABELA’S SELLS WILD WINGS

OUTDOOR SPORTING GOODS AND APPAREL MERCHANT CABELA’S has sold its wildlife-art division, Wild Wings, to RDE Acquisition Co., which is owned by an unnamed former officer of Wild Wings. Terms of the deal, which closed on Oct. 30, were not disclosed.

Cabela’s will continue to sell Wild Wings collectibles and limited-edition prints through its retail stores, catalogs and Website. Cabela’s CEO Tommy Millner said in a statement that the Wild Wings sale is consistent with the merchant’s strategy of focusing on core business operations.

Cabela’s sold off its Van Dyke’s Taxidermy unit in September to McKenzie Sports Products, according to Cabelas’ most recent 10Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Cabela’s third-quarter 2009 revenue was $624.3 million, up from $611.8 million for the same period in 2008. But its direct sales for the quarter were $226.2 million, down from $241.2 million in the third quarter of 2008.
