If you're in the position of having to bust hump now to get to deer camp on a Friday, many will probably bring their vittles from home, instead of buying them at grocery stores near camps?
I buy most of the groceries when I get to camp, although certain things to eat are always brought from home. When I went up on 4/25 for spring gobbler, all I took along was some frozen meat loaf and a few other things. Bought all new condiments for the camp fridge, eggs, bacon, soda, cold cuts, bread, milk, store made donuts and other stuff, at the local grocery, when I got there.
Deer season I usually fetch some other things from our freezer, since I'm there for two weeks, but they don't last more than a few days and we eat Friday nights at a restaurant's fish fry.
As some have noted, it's the local non-profits that will have to re-figure their annual hunters' dinner fund raisers, many of which were on the Sunday night before the opener. Many rural VFDs, churches and other groups depended on those dinners for part of their annual incomes.
We go to the local Grange Hall for the big feast on that Sunday night, for example. Their only other major fund raiser is their July Fourth chicken BBQ.
