"Our difficulties this quarter were isolated to two categories: golf and hunting," said Edward W. Stack, Chairman and CEO. "After a very challenging first quarter in golf last year, we expected some further headwinds and only modest improvement, but instead we saw a continued significant decline. In the case of hunting, we planned the business down based on last year's catalysts, but it was even weaker than expected."
