Looking to buy a new rifle for my wife but I have a lack of knowledge when it comes to choosing exactly what length, brand, caliber, etc.... This will be used for her go to rifle to be carried at all times while we hunt for most all edible Alaskan game, moose, caribou, sheep, black bear, etc. Up until now only I have carried.
I was leaning toward a 30.06 for the lighter recoil. Although I'm unsure of brand to buy.
Keep in mind my wife is 5'4" and about 130 lbs... So something a bit shorter than the typical rifle is necessary.
I've contemplated having one custom made too....
All input is greatly appreciated!
