PROVO, Utah (AP) -- At 150-thousand square feet, the Cabela's opening next year in Lehi is already anything but a typical outdoor store.

But thanks to a new two (M) million grant from Utah County, the store is getting another quirk -- a wildlife museum.

County leaders say patrons will be able to see stuffed trophy animals of every stripe, exotic fish in a big aquarium and an assortment of antique guns.

In return for its investment, the county will co-own the museum for up to 12 years, or the life of the bond.

The Lehi superstore is expected to draw four (M) million visitors a year.

The store is Cabela's 13th, and the first in the West for the Nebraska-based retailer.
