I was going to think of something funny to say like install a kisser button but you know I take hunting pretty serious. HM I think your best bet is to change your rear sight but I'm not sure to what. I would call Midway USA and talk to them about it. I think they should be able to come up with some products that might work. You can't be the only one that is in this boat that they have spoken too. Surely they will have an answer.

I think someone out there makes a peep sight for rifles don't they? Don't know how well that would work with a flintlock but hey...who knows? HAd a friend once that always talked about getting one but never did that I know of. Might work well with the eye thing HM. I'm slowly getting that problem too...

We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results

Good ideas, i'll see what the eye doc says tomorrow. Not being able to see both sights clearly is a big problem that has to be resolved. Its a smaller problem with the bow and I can shoot without glasses. I may be able to purchase special hunting lenses??????

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

T/C Omega in stainless with laminate stock - absolute tack driver.

T/C Renegade - Been resting for 4 years now. I will take it out next spring
for interest only but will not hunt with it. Probably can't hit a billboard at 40 yards with it anymore. I did take 4 deer with it over 20 years though.

TC Encore SS

Well for the last two seasons I used my Encore. Next year I'm sticking strictly to my Perdersoli .50cal Frontier for atleast one kill. Then maybe my slug gun? But if all works really well, then it'll be a CVA Hawken (.50)(which I just bought today) and a Lyman GPR (.54) when I get my kit to build. I hate making choices

Well saw the eye doc, not much help. he can build a special lens for the right eye, a circular top small bi-focal that would require me to sight through the lens and then slightly raise my head to see the deer clearly through the normal lens. This seems not to be a good thing as in flintlock shooting everything has to be smoothe and good follow through. Changing my head alinement in the middle of the shot can't be a good thing. Not sure what to do???

I shoot 120grs loose T7 or 3x T7 pellets and a 250gr SST. This will give just under 2" @100yds. I use a Nikon Omega on it.
