      Lawmaker aims to allow the blind to hunt

      AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A Texas lawmaker is aiming to allow the
      blind to hunt. Texas State Representative Edmund Kuempel has
      introduced a measure that would allow blind people to hunt any game
      that sighted people can currently pursue.

      He hopes it will be passed after the legislature reconvenes in
      January though he does not expect it to come into affect until 2008.

      "This opens up the fun of hunting to additional people, and I think
      that's great," Kuempel told Reuters.

      The bill may find little resistance in Texas, where politicians of
      all stripes endorse hunting, which is wildly popular in the state.
      Under the bill, blind hunters would be required to have a sighted
      hunter with them and would be allowed to use laser sights and other
      devices that are currently not allowed.

      "A blind person can shoot a rifle by mounting an offset pistol scope
      on the side of the rifle instead of on top," said Terry Erwin, the
      Austin-based Hunter Education Coordinator with the Texas Parks and
      Wildlife Department.

      "This allows their companion behind them to peer over their shoulder
      and help them sight it, but the blind person can pull the trigger,"
      he told Reuters.
