Cabela’s is attempting to make peace with Montanans over a recent outcry over their real estate franchise Cabela’s Trophy Properties. They presented a $50,000 check to Montana’s Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission on Thursday, and pledged an additional $12,000 per year for the next five years.

The story reports that the commission accepted the check “cautiously.”

The cynic in me says “I’m sure that’ll buy lots of public access,” and “Wonder whose commission that cut into.” The realist in me says that “Gee, that’s more than a whole hell of a lot of other realtors are doing – some that have been born and raised right here.”

Anyways – there it is. A promise of new policies and $110,000 over the next five years for FWP to purchase public access.

(Update: Via the Houston Chronicle, the AP has the story up on Cabela’s interaction with the Montana FWP commission)
