We called it earlier this year – we’d love to see Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s VP pick. And it’s now official. If Mitt Romney becomes the next President of the United States – we will have an avid deer hunter and Quality Deer Management Association member representing us as Vice President!

Says Jay McAnich, President of the Archery Trade Association, “”Paul Ryan is a congressman, statesman and policymaker at our nations highest levels. And he bowhunts. To my knowledge, that’s never happened before…In fact, take just one look at Paul Ryan holding a bow at full draw, and you know he’s the real deal; a hardcore bowhunter. He’s not just another politician holding a gun or bow for the first time – maybe the only time – while currying favor with our country’s large hunting bloc.”

All other political positions and views aside, this gets me excited.
