My father in law lost both eyes due to industrial injurys. That was mid to late 1980's. Finally lost last of sight around 89.He had gun rigged up so he can hold it on tripod and scope mounted offset. Someone stands behind him looks through scope and tells him which way to adjust. Once there tell him to squeeze and kaboom. He has harvested antelope deer and a cow moose this way. Pretty awesome!!

He introduced me to high country hunting right before he lost his sight completely. We tried pistol scopes and rifle scope. He finally found a guy that built the offset scope mount. That's awesome also. And if I knew who he was I would personally thank him but father in law told me today he thinks he passed away in Oregon!! So thanks above if this is true!!

Congrats to him!


This is a great post and I bet you it feels so good to put his hands on the deer when he gets one!

Kind of makes me feel guilty for complaining over aches and pains due to age. In spite of everything else. my eyesight is excellent. Kind of been taking that for granted. Guess we should be thankful for what we have rather than complaining over what we have lost. He is a true warrior and I'm sure his family is very proud of him. Good job and best wishes to you all...

Exactly! There are many of us that don't share the struggles of day to day life that some people do. In reality, we should be forever grateful for the opportunities the Good Lord has blessed us with!
