Deer Hunters Presence Boost Local Economy

Deer season brings lots of people from out of the community to Shelby County each year. This year was no exception. More people equals a boost to the local economy. Food establishments, gas stations and the motel all profit from the season and the people in brings.
   Linda Dobyns, owner of Dobyns Market, starts getting busy the days leading up to deer season, because she has one of the places that sells deer tags. Many local people purchase their tags several days leading up to the season, but they get bombarded the day or two before the season starts from many of those who have traveled in from out of town.
   According to a representative from Casey’s General Store, Shelbyville and Shelbina really get a boost being that they are located in the heart of deer hunting. Sales in gas, beer, food, and propane all go up during that time. There are customers that the workers at Casey’s know, but only see once a year, and that’s when they come to Shelby County to hunt for deer in November.
   Ayerco Manager Heather Fry, said that they have definitely seen the boost. Breakfast and lunch are busy times for us. Busier than usual. On the fuel end of it we’ve done very well also,” she said. “Beer sales the Friday before opening morning are high. That is the big day, the day before the season opens and everyone is getting to town. Overall the store is up a few thousand dollars,” Fry added. “Weekends are the best, but it’s still good through the week,” she said.
   Martha Parrish, owner of Martha’s Restaurant in Shelbina, said that she had a boost in business for breakfast, lunch and supper. Both weekends and through the week were busier than normal for her.

The City of Shelbina is still going through the process and steps required for the Demolition Grant. According to Shelbina City Clerk Tim Lacy, they are currently going through the title search. He said five of the 36 structures have been identified as historical, they are waiting for the engineering assessment to be completed.
   The next step will be to move forward with the process to seek bids for the demolition. Ideally, Lacy said they would like to have that ready to go by Jan. 1, but realistically, he would guess the latter part of January or closer to Feb. 1.
