This rulemaking would establish an exception to the current prohibition against using an electronic device attached to, or incorporated in, a scope when taking big game. The rulemaking would allow a blind hunter to attach a camera device to a scope to facilitate a sighted person in helping a blind hunter to line up on a target. This rulemaking would establish criteria for the exception and a permitting process.
