Story By Morgan Johnson Local News Published 11/20/2020 4:44PM, Last Updated 11/20/2020 5:19PM Antigo, WI - Doors opened at 6 a.m. Friday at the Antigo Fleet Farm for the annual "Orange Friday" event.Hundreds of people filed in, a day before the nine-day gun deer season.

"People are ready to get out into the woods and bag that big buck," said Fleet Farm operations manager Tyler Kopetsky.

He's referring to the blaze orange baseball caps given to the first 500 customers in line.

That's the primary reason Michael Dreher showed this morning.

While Dreher is an avid, long-time hunter, Robert Ridgeway is new to the tradition.

While every hunter has different amounts of experience, they all went to Fleet Farm for the same reason: the hats.
