ANTIGO - Tomorrow they'll hunt for deer. But today they hunted for bargains. The cold air and snow didn't stop the Mills Fleet Farm parking lot from filling up in Antigo. Everyone in line couldn't wait to get one of these, a new blaze orange hat. They went to the first 500 customers through the door. "It's just a great time," says Greg Trunk, Manager at Mills Fleet Farm. "Even with the lines backed up, nobody's pushing or shoving telling deer hunting stories. It's a great time." "It's a busy week for us. They buy everything. It's not really hard to merchandise. They want everything they get everything," says Trunk. Customers loaded carts full of the merchandise. Anticipating the gun deer season, which starts Saturday. "Hunting is just being out in the woods out in nature spending time just outside if I get a deer that's a bonus if not we're still outside spending time with friends family, nature," says Roger Taylor. Spending time with friends is just one of many reasons why people go hunting. "It's just great to be out there you're sitting out in the stands its quiet camaraderie of the other hunters, and then the thrill of when the deer comes in," says Trunk. "Even if you don't get one you just see them out in the wild it's just a great time out there," says Trunk. The 9 day deer gun season ends December 1st.
