Deer hunters bring more than ammunition and weapons to the Muskingum Valley. They bring business and that business significantly helps the local economy. Business owners say they were worried the economy would affect hunters' travel plans, but they're showing up in droves. Zanesville/Muskingum County Chamber of Commerce president Tom Poorman says all types of businesses benefit from the influx of hunters. Holiday Inn general manager Carol Humphreys says the same hunters show up and reserve rooms, year after year and it hasn't changed this year. Deer gun season extends through the end of this week.
