TV Host Helps Visually Impaired Girl Take First Deer

EVERETT, Pa. (AP) — A 13-year-old Pennsylvania girl who is visually impaired has shot her first deer, with the help of a Vermont sportsman.

Kevin Hoyt, the creator of “The Future of Hunting'' show connected with Aubree Hoster through a nonprofit whose mission is to send youths with a severe disability on a hunting or fishing trip.

The Bennington Banner reports that Hoster went for a hunting trip in the western Pennsylvania town of Everett Oct. 9.

Hoyt says Hoster has juvenile glaucoma and has no vision in her right eye, and only has 10 percent of vision in her left eye.

He says a special iPhone attachment was attached to the rifle scope to help Hoster find the deer. It allowed her to see more clearly.

Hoyt says Hoster will appear on the show in early 2016.
