Crivitz prepares for opening day of the deer hunting season

Saturday hunters from all over Wisconsin will make their way to the Northwoods and a shot at shooting a trophy buck.

However, this weekend and next for the two week of the deer gun hunt also means big bucks for businesses up north.

"It's crazy, it's really crazy," said Thomas Anderson who marks at Pelkin's Smokey Meat Market. "Last year we had 370 deer come in on opening day alone."

So this week businesses are preparing for the invasion of hunters and that includes a wide array of businesses, from the T & B One Stop, to the restaurants and bars and also others like the corn mill who supplies hunters with what they need.

"We just had about one hundred bags of apples get dropped off and we will go through that in probably the next day or so," said Brandon Ruf of the T & B One Stop. "As a business we just make sure we got a little bit of everything from hats to jackets to gloves, everything people sometimes forget at home."

This time of year is special to the people who work and play in Crivitz, because hunting season brings energy and a fun atmosphere to the north.

"It's the stories," said Anderson. "hunters always have a dramatic story and deer they shot always ends up being an epic hunt."

Local 5 would like to tell your story this Saturday, Steve Dent will be doing a story and would like the chance to go hunting with a group or family or an individual.
