We're well into deer bow hunting season in Michigan.  While most hunters must wait until November 15 to bag their trophy bucks with firearms, a special event is happening this week for some firearms hunters.

The "Independence Hunt" allows people with physical disabilities to enjoy firearms hunting.  It's sponsored by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Current State's Kevin Lavery speaks with Bryan Wilkinson, a disabled hunter who spent the first day of the hunt at Sharonville State Game Area in Jackson County.
