Na. That would only be if he shot his spear gun using both eyes.

Only one eye can be dominite
Not true. A small percentage of people have eyes that are equally dominant. Mine are that way and I shoot gun left hand and bow right. Initially I have to slightly squint one eye in order to get the other to take over focus. Once that eye picks up I can open the other. It took lots of time and practice to be able to do it but it has been worth while. Now I can shoot either bow or rifle with either hand.

I shoot a (right handed gun) left handed and a right handed bow right handed. Things work out just fine for me. Have a few pics to prove it....

It's called ambiocular. It's not that both eyes are dominant but rather the eyes show no dominance relative to each other. The military has several published articles and research studies on this for rifle marksman. I've researched this because I have the same trait. It's why I shoot bows, rifles, pistols however I want depending on the circumstance and the angle in a tree stand. I'm also ambidextrous so maybe that plays a part as well.

I have tried the different tests for eye dominance and they all show right eye but when I shot my bow I do need to squint my left to get everything to work well. I am thinking I might be right eye dominate but just barely.
