Paul Ryan and Daughter Each Bag a Buck

Con­grats to them both.

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.
