hey yall i need some advice. i want to start my oldest daughter deer hunting next year. she will be 9. she has been shooting air rifles since she was 3, and a .22 rifle since she was six. i am going to start her out on a .410 shotgun this summer for rabbits. i was thinking about a 7mm-08 for deer. the ballistics look good on paper, for what she might encounter out there- hogs, deer and coyotes. i just don't know about recoil, as i have never shot one. i got started on a .30-06 when i was 6 years old, and it was damn near child abuse. i still shoot one today, and i have absolutely no flinch from recoil from any caliber or gauge i shoot. BUT i don't want to put my kid through that. i used to see stars every time i pulled the trigger. i never shot a .22 till i was 12 years old, in the boy scouts. she is pretty stout and i think she can handle moderate recoil. she listens and learns well too, or i wouldn't have bought her the .22. recoil is the biggest issue in consideration of ths caliber. i want to stay away from the .223, .243, 6 mm rem, and .22-250. thanks for any help.
