With all the focus on U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan and this year’s presidential election, we’ve learned about the Wisconsin native’s love of hunting and the outdoors.
In our earlier “I’m A Deer Hunter” interview with the GOP vice presidential nominee, Ryan told us he’s a bow hunter who shoots a Mathews compound, prepares his own venison and has hunted since he was a teenager.
He alluded to loving whatever kind of hunting seasons are open for deer, though, and said he killed his first deer with a lever-action rifle. But we didn’t get into any other specifics during our short interview about his firearms, other than him mentioning he enjoyed hunting with a handgun.
Emily Miller of the Washington Times, who enjoys shooting and the outdoors, had a nice story about Ryan on the topic of hunting and firearms. She spoke with his brother-in-law, who Ryan helped introduce to hunting, and he gave some more insight on the topic.
