It appears that Bass Pro Shops is in the process of buying Cabela's. According to the press release, no big changes are contemplated, but who knows?

Heard the sale has already been completed.

Hate to see Cabela's go. I have one of their catalogs from 1973 around here somewhere. It's more of a black & white magazine.

I saw something where Bass Pro Shops was saying they are "Excited to grow the Cabela's Brand". I am not quite sure what that means. Are they going to keep the brand? Is it going to turn into Cabela's by Bass Pro Shop? or are they going to absorb it completely?

So far, it looks like Cabela's will keep their own brand. It would be STUPID to do otherwise. Of course, anything can happen down the road. One of my worries is that some 27 year old hot shot know it all will decide the brand needs to go "upscale" and drop hunting and fishing and turn it into a yuppie back packing store like REI.
