It certainly was heartwarming to pick up the sports section this morning (Nov. 30) and read the Outdoor Notes column about the two blind "hunters" in Wisconsin who managed to kill a couple of deer over the weekend.
How poignant that these proud men were denied the joy of seeing their bloody, lifeless trophies.
This opens up a whole new realm of sporting activities for the sightless. What will they come up with next, skeet shooting with live cats? How about urban dog fishing? Imagine the excitement of a blind angler strapped into the back of a pickup truck, trolling for strays through city streets with Alpo-baited dynamite.
These folks from Wisconsin certainly have come up with an innovative, All-American way to get the disadvantaged involved in society, challenging them to throw away that white cane and pick up a gun.
