House Bill 308, sponsored by State Representative Edmund Kuempel (R-44), was recently signed into law by Governor Rick Perry (R). HB 308 allows legally blind hunters accompanied by a sighted partner to use projected laser sighting devices in order to hunt more effectively and safely. Before the passage of this new law, blind hunters were accompanied by a sighted person who helped to identify game, ensure that a safe shot is available and engage in the truly daunting task of gazing over the hunter’s shoulder and making a best guess as to whether the blind hunter’s rifle or handgun is properly aligned with the animal’s vital area in order to ensure a clean, humane harvest. HB 308 makes great strides toward eliminating the guesswork for blind hunters and their partners -- guesswork that is never faced by sighted hunters.Disabled hunters already face enough challenges when they enter the field. HB 308 will encourage more disabled sportsmen to pursue their love of hunting.
