Abstract

Visual deficiencies are found to be a factor in hunting accidents. Hunting, by its nature, is very dependent on vision. However, a vision test is not required to obtain a hunting license. In an age matched population, 278 licensed hunters were screened to assess visual abilities. The data collected through this screening survey of appropriate visual skills for hunters, suggests a need for the implementation of vision requirements for a hunter prior to licensing. A suggested battery of screening tests appropriate for hunting vision skills are presented.
