ST. PAUL - A new bill going through the Minnesota House aims to help visually impaired hunters. Each year a half million Minnesotans participate in hunting.
To help the visually impaired hunt representative Bud Nornes is asking lawmakers to pass a bill allowing those with trouble seeing to use a laser sight to hunt.
"I envision it to be that the person who is doing the actual firing or the release of the arrow, is being instructed by his friend as to where the laser is aiming, and so it's the friend that's kind of in a lot of cases is doing the sighting because he sees where the laser dot is," said Nornes.
The bill is expected to become part of a larger omnibus natural resources bill.
