SORRY, But We Have A Winner,
All of you trying to get your point across that it's private property, are making a false assumtion, in that, IT'S NOT THE STORE MANAGERS PROPERTY!

For cripes sake, how is that so hard to unsderstand.
Do I agree 100% witrh how thew OP handled it?
But I definitely would be taking it up with corporate ,and would ask for a written apology from the ill-informed store manager.
I've done it before, there...
I live near the Cabella's of which you write, and I've open-carried in there many times, without issue. My wife and I went there last fall to purchase a bow and associated accessories; my son and I have gone there to eat and look at tents; my whole family has gone to look at boats. Of all those trips in the past year, I've never had a problem with staff. The only interactions I've had regarding my firearm were 'what is it?,' and, 'I like Glock, too.'
Perhaps it was how you carried yourself, and not so much what you were carrying?
