Opening Day Impacts Local Businesses

Opening day isn't just exciting for hunters, but businesses around Northern Michigan as well.

They'll be hunting tomorrow, but today hunters took to businesses to prepare themselves for opening day.

Ed's Sport Shop and restaurant, Barski, are just two local businesses who were seeing a boost from the hunters.

While Barski was open for hunters until 2 a.m. yesterday morning, Ed's Sport Shop has seen hunters come in for licenses, deer scent, and ammunition.

They also both expect to see a large number of hunters over the weekend as well.

Both businesses say that they appreciate how much the hunters help the local economy.
