Default Eye guard?

Anyone use one or know why people use them? I shoot my bow much like my guns, left eye closed. However when I shoot pistol or rifle for targets I have shooter glasses with the left side blacked out so I don't have to close the eye. I am guessing it is the same idea, with an eye guard you don't have to close the left eye at all but it blocks that eyes vision.

Lots of people shoot with them for targets. For hunting just close the eye.

That's great to hear. You never know where a fix is gonna come from in the shooting world. Heck in the outdoor community for that matter.
