Hello all. New member here, I've been "lurking in the shadows" the past week or so, looks like I've found a great forum and a great group of guys and gals.
I'm new to hunting, mid 40's owned a couple of rifles back in my 20's then met a wonderful ( well almost) wonderful woman who didn't care for either hunting or guns so I sold them off :( Some of the dumb things we do.... anyway, my situation has changed ( divorced) and I'm ready to realize a life long dream, my 13 year old daughter is also interested in hunting. I bought a couple of rifles, a X-Bolt in 270 short mag and a new model 70 super grade in 30-06. Just took del for the X-Bolt today. Plan on spending the next year, practicing and learning all I can, then apply for tags next year. I hope to pick you guys brains from time to time and I also work with a several guys who hunt. Any info I get from you is appreciated.
My Daughter has fired 22 L.R for some time now and it a pretty darn good shot, what caliber for deer would you suggest? .243? 7mm08? 25-06? I am open to suggestions.
Thanks for reading..
