      Blind hunter gets bear

      Jaime Villa is an avid hunter. Her game of choice? Bear.

      She's tried for several years to get the required bear tag needed to hunt the game, but she hasn't had luck in the lottery.

      This year she got her tag and she got her bear. What TMs the catch? Jaime is legally blind.

      I have a retinal degenerative disease called retinitis pigmentosa. I have very, very limited sight. I pretty much can see the difference between light and dark, silhouettes of people, and pretty much no detail of anything; just kind of blur, said Villa.

      So with her boyfriend's help from the safe confines of a tree stand, Jaime lined up, she pulled the trigger. The result: a 110 pound black bear.
