I deer hunt with a friend that is blind. We put an oversized red dot scope on his rifle . It is 1X. It is close to 60 mm in size. He handles the rifle completely on his own. One of us stands behind him(usually his brother), look through the scope over his shoulder,and we tell him where his impact is. It took alot of practice(part of the fun), but he is very good now. He shot two deer last year, a 6PT and a doe, we had a blast, Tom.

Thanks, guys. All of the info is very interesting. I saw part of a program on TV the other day about echolocation. It's an amazing idea.
Kennedy's still pretty little now, but we'll definitely be trying out all the ideas you've given just as soon as she's big enough!

My wife has been using echolocation for over 60 years, she snaps her fingers for the noise source.
Please make your girl as independent as possible.
Let her climb trees, chase dogs and cats, hold chickens and ducks,swim in the creeks, jump from high places and wallow in the mud in low places.
Kids are to be supported, not smothered.
Being blind is a problem, not a lifestyle.
