An Evansville man is grazed in the head by a bullet during a hunting trip.

This accidental shooting happened at Hovey Lake just after 8:00 Thursday morning.

Indiana DNR officials say 64-year-old Michael Edwards was squirrel hunting with Roy Hall.

They say Hall then tried to shoot a squirrel but the bullet ricocheted and grazed Edward's head.

Officers tell us the victim refused to go to the hospital.

Investigators plan to return to Hovey Lake on Friday with both men to recreate the scene.
