Hunters need a one-stop destination before heading into the woods for deer camp. That’s why Fleet Farm hosts Orange Friday the day before the opening of firearm deer season in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and South Dakota.
On Orange Friday, Fleet Farm retail locations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and South Dakota open an hour early – at 6 a.m. Orange Friday features door-buster deals on items that hunters need for a successful hunt. The first 500 customers through the doors will receive a limited-edition Fleet Farm “Orange Friday” blaze orange hat.

Last-minute Prep for Deer Camp
Orange Friday is one of Fleet Farm’s largest – and most popular – events of the year, bringing hunters of all ages in for one-and-done shopping to grab those last-minute needs for deer camp. Hunters can fuel up their trucks, get their hunting licenses, stock up on last minute gear and buy plenty of snacks for the tree stand.
“Orange Friday is a big event for our customers, who will stand for hours outside waiting for the doors to open to take advantage of our doorbuster deals,” said Heath Ashenfelter, Chief Merchandising Officer for Fleet Farm. “We ensure our cool weather gear, snacks and ammo are fully stocked, as these are huge sellers the day before deer opener.”
