Paul Ryan and Daughter Each Bag a Buck
Hunting in Oklahoma over the Thanksgiving holiday, success came to the Wisconsin lawmaker and his 10-year-old daughter, Liza, making her first solo trip into the woods.
“Congressman Ryan was grateful to spend time with his family over the Thanksgiving holiday. He was able to hunt with his daughter Liza,” spokesman Kevin Seifert told Secrets.
“Both of them had successful and safe outings, each shooting a buck,” he added.
Since their hunt just ended, more details of the size of the bucks weren’t available.
But Ryan, a dedicated bowhunter, earlier said that his daughter had been hunting with him before but this was the first year she could legally hunt alone from her own stand. He added that she was practicing with a Remington 700 .243 caliber he previously bought her. The .243 is one of the most popular calibers for deer hunting because it is accurate at long distances and recoils very little.
The Remington 700 .243 retails at around $350 to $450 depending on the seller. It’s a solid little starter rifle for a young hunter or middle class hunter looking for a cheap, but good back-up gun to go hunting with.
