AIKEN, S.C. (AP) -- Officials at the Savannah River Site near Aiken are hosting an event for deer hunters with disabilities.
The annual hunt takes place Friday and Saturday at the former nuclear weapons facility. Organizers say the sprawling complex is an ideal place for the event and provides hunters with a safe environment.
The U.S. Department of Energy says the organized hunts help control the area's deer population.
The hunt was originally scheduled for earlier in the year but was delayed by the federal government shutdown. Hunters who were selected to participate in the postponed activities are eligible for the new dates.
