      Houghton County Arena hosts gun show

      The 9th Annual Gun and Knife Show was held Saturday at the Houghton County Arena in Hancock.

      Up to 50 vendors were out at the show selling anything from rifles to jewlery. Vendors ranged from gunsmiths to taxidermists to hunting and fishing equipment.

      Some of the proceeds will be going to local sportsman clubs to go towards their deer feeds. The show also featured several raffles and drawings from a variety of prizes.

      "They're showing people the safety of firearms, showing the community members as well as visitors what we have to offer at a gun show" said Northwoods co-owner Carol Freeman.

      The gun and knife show ran from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday. Freeman said she expected about 300 people to be at the show that day
