But not every Browning product is the latest “innovation.” Some are tried and true. Yet they exhibit the Browning commitment to excellence embodied in our slogan The Best There Is.

Cabela’s, the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, was born somewhat inadvertently in 1961 when Dick Cabela came up with a plan to sell fishing flies he purchased while at a furniture show in Chicago. Upon returning home to Chappell, Nebraska, Dick ran a classified ad in the Casper, Wyoming, newspaper reading: “12 hand-tied flies for $1.” It generated one response. Undaunted, Dick formulated a new plan, rewriting the ad to read “FREE Introductory offer! 5 hand tied Flies….25c Postage….Handling” and placing it in national outdoor magazines. It didn’t take long for the orders to begin arriving from sportsmen and women around the country. In the interim Cabelas growth has been legendary and they have been a proud supporter of many conservation organizations. Delta Waterfowl is happy to welcome Cabela’s as a Conservation Partner.

“Cabela’s is proud to sponsor Delta Waterfowl and their invaluable efforts to enhance duck production, advocate hunting and continue their world renowned research programs. Cabela’s is making contributions towards these Delta projects. It’s part of our commitment to preserving our hunting traditions and to the millions of fellow hunters we serve.”

Federal Premium® Ammunition began building shotshells in 1922, an era generally agreed was a low point in wildlife conservation. Much of America was being plowed up, and waterfowl habitat was being destroyed at record rates. Company leaders from the very beginning realized that if Federal Ammunition was to be successful, America had to have healthy wildlife populations or our customer base would go away. In the 1930’s Federal started Conservation Camps with 4H, supported passage of the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Conservation Act, and advertised with cartoons preaching a conservation ethic.

That commitment to wildlife conservation is still core to Federal’s business philosophy as is our commitment to innovation to provide the most effective product hunters and target shooters can buy. BLACKCLOUD ® shotshells are an example of that innovation, featuring game changing technology in the FLITECONTROL ® wad, and FLITESTOPPER ® pellets that increase lethality, and reduce wounding loss. After all, clean kills makes for good conservation. Look for the Delta Waterfowl logo proudly displayed on our Speed-Shok ® waterfowl loads. We display that logo because we believe that Delta has the vision and the courage to sustain waterfowl and waterfowl hunters, and we think all our customers should be members.

In 2000, Heavy Hauler Outdoor Gear found its unexpected beginning when founder Jason Bird was given the task of making two products that would stand up to the rigors of a good friend’s demanding waterfowl hunting needs. The first Original Leather game strap and shotshell belt were made at that time in a small custom leather shop. Not long after, those same products were being sold by a leading outdoor retailer. From there a company was born with a strong focus on making new and different products with the best materials available. Heavy Hauler Outdoor Gear soon became a leader in innovative waterfowl hunting gear. Products can now be found in retail locations throughout the US and Canada. Heavy Hauler Outdoor Gear has expanded beyond waterfowl with products now found in upland hunting, pets/dogs, big game, and archery categories. With a shared vision of the future in waterfowling, Heavy Hauler Outdoor Gear is proud to announce their partnership with Delta Waterfowl.
