Anybody shooting bolt actions when you are right handed but left eye dominant??

Are you shooting a left hand bolt using left eye, or right hand bolt and closing your left eye?  

What are recommendations?

I would try learning how to shoot with both eyes open. I know it’s sounds hard but can be done. I have taught many with shotgun and handgun to shoot better this way. I shoot running game with a scope and most times both eyes are open. Sometimes I can’t help and the left eyes does close. Not sure if that would help with your issue but I would try it. Was trained to do so and on my own perfected it.

My oldest daughter is right handed and left eye dominant.  I picked this up very early and she learned to shoot left handed with a right handed bolt. (Offered to upgrade her to a left handed bolt as the other kids started hunting, but she really liked her youth Winchester Model 70 - Still uses it).  Over time she has done well, and is quite good with it.  One time putting two shots in the chest of a buck while it was running.  She crosses over with her trigger hand to work the bolt.  This year she shot a doe on the run and blew its heart up from 80 yds away.  Proud dad moments....
