    Cabela's shutting down with ZERO notice
    Got this today. Would have been nice to get some warning. I am trying to confirm if this is JUST at GAN or GAN and CJ. I'm guessing both.

    Dear Publisher,

    The Cabela's Affiliate Program will be pausing as of September 13th, 2012 to provide the necessary time to fully assess the new regulations going into effect in California and Georgia.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your devoted support. We plan to re-introduce our affiliate program in the very near future and look forward to the continuation of our partnership at that time. Another communication will be sent once we have further information and are able to re-open our affiliate program.

    We appreciate your continued support of the Cabela's affiliate program. Please reach out should you have any questions.

    Regards,

    Cabela's Affiliate Team

    There has been discussion about Cabela's with regards to GAN no longer allowing merchants to sell anything weapons related. Guess they could not come to an amicable solution...

    I don't think this is related to the guns and ammo since it appears to also be closed in cj. They also state in the e-mail that it is related to the California and Georgia tax laws. Why close the entire program? Every other merchant simply drops those states.

    Yeah, you're probably right...

    My read on their email which I received on the 6th was that they were examining their legal responsibilities. Knowing how legal departments work it can take a month or more before they decide how they want to handle this. Seems they chose to close down the program to minimize liability similar to what we saw with the New York nexus law.
