As the pilgrimage north begins as early as tomorrow, many Hubbard County businesses are gearing up to capitalize on the 2011 deer firearms opener.


Only one cabin remains available for rent at Home Bay Camp on Lower Bottle Lake, said owner Lynn Davidson. The other four are spoken for.

Most of the hunters are regulars who've come up here for years and have their own hunting spots, Davidson said.

Otherwise, "most of †he land around here is posted."
