1st kill for my new Swat Xp. 1 for 1! 30 yards, both lungs, clean pass thru, ran about 20 yards and piled up. After all I have gone thru this last 7 months with losing an eye this is as much a trophy as any big buck I have killed..... but now the page turns toward the rut and getting a smasher! Big shout out to KI and Jason for all they have done to help me!

Man I’m glad you got one. It takes a long time to get your depth perception back and stuff like that, In August 2004 I was on a surf trip with my buddies in Costa Rica. All my buddies were inside having lunch and I was out surfing by myself & the unthinkable happened, the wave i was riding closed out and I went underwater all the while my leash stretched out then came back at me full force while I was at underwater & the tip/nose gouged my left eye out so I know how tough it is to gauge stuff with only one working eye. At first I couldn’t even keep my car in my lane without running off the side of the road but after a while you start getting used to everything, Luckily my right eye was my dominant eye so aiming and shooting stuff wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. The thing that helped me the most was actually getting out there and trying to do stuff like I did before. If you have any questions about anything feel free to PM me or message me. I’m glad that you’re back on the horse again though…
