When it comes to rating the coolest celebrity figures of the bowhunting world, there are certainly different factors to consider. Somewhere on the list of criteria has got to be an overall propensity for badassery, willingness to stick it to the anti-hunting crowd and pure dedication for the sport.
In the past year alone the bowhunting community has received support from a number of potentially surprising sources, like vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, whose code name during the 2012 campaign season was “bowhunter.” Not only did Ryan pose in a business suit with his bow at full draw, he also lent his voice in support of a hunting culture that’s older than America itself. Supporting our hunting heritage isn’t always a popular endeavor, but Ryan stood behind it with commendable resolve.
