Ok, so I have a 10 year old that is itching to shoot her first caribou next year. I have a couple of guns that would work for her but I may look into getting something that fits her better in terms of size and caliber.
Right now I have available a .300 winmag (too big) and a .280 (nice flat shooter but physically to large) and a .25-06 (may be a bit light bullet wise)
I'm really looking for something that will be compact yet have enough punch to do the job. I started hunting years ago with a .30-30 on whitetails and it did the job, but I was a 140 lb farm boy and she is a 75 lbs tomboy.
Any good suggestions? Thanks
