Today is the day after Thanksgiving and that means Black Friday shopping. This morning in Boise, shoppers lined up to get into their favorite stores.

Some shoppers started camping at Cabelas' as early as Monday. The first 600 people in line at the outdoor store received a prize which ranged from gift cards to a rifle.

Shoppers at Best Buy were waiting since 12:30 this morning. s One Black Friday shopper there said the hot ticket item was a flat screen TV.

"I looked at the adds online last night and i looked online to see kind of what was available and what was probably the best deal and i found this and i know best buy is crazy so i just came and saw if it was available and it was. I think it's a $100 for a 32" smart TV so pretty good," said Erin Hedrick, Black Friday shopper. 

The National Retail Federation estimated more than 137 million people will shop this holiday weekend, which is more than last year.
