Just a few days ago Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was spotted in an Ohio Bass Pro Shops picking up a few pieces of camouflage for his young 10-year-old daughter. He said he plans to go hunting with her this fall in Wisconsin and Oklahoma, where his wife’s family owns property.
“She’s going to get to go hunting this year for the first time,” Ryan told reporters. “She’s 10 years old, so she can hunt starting at 10.” His daughter, Liza, has been waiting anxiously since Christmas to go hunting after she received a Winchester Model 70 chambered in .243 Winchester.
But as of late, we have seen a clean-shaven Ryan who has been making numerous appearances at various rallies, the next being a sportsmen’s rally in Ohio this Saturday, the opening day of archery season for deer. For a man who is known to avoid shaving during the season in order to not be sniffed out by highly scent-sensitive deer, the time to hunt is not yet upon him even though firearm deer season starts on November 15 in Wisconsin and November 17 in Oklahoma. Bow hunting season is already in swing in Wisconsin and Oklahoma’s begins October 1.
