    We have a guy here in town, had 2 different accidents, and lost the sight in both his eyes....His bow setup is a regular everyday compound bow, with a red dot sight mounted on the outside of the riser. His spotter looks over his shoulder, tells him, up, down, left, right...shoot!!! He shoots some 3D shoots, and believe me....there are some guys gittin whooped by a blind man!!! He usually finishes about halfway in the pack!!! He usually kills both his turkeys in the spring AND fall seasons...basically has his shotgun set up the same way...red dot scope. He also kills deer, bow and gun, wild hogs same way...He also goes elk hunting every year, last year in 2 states!!! He said he killed a shoulder blade on a cow elk, and a big tree...!!! Very amazing man, to say the least!!! Good thread MRB!!!

    That is a great story! Being able to overcome the obstacle and still hunt is a wonderful thing!
