Rest assured if she shoots a deer she won't even feel the recoil.
i know the first deer i shot many years ago was with a 243, my emotions were so high that i wouldn't have noticed if i had shot a cannon!

the biggest difference in the youth rifles and full size is the LOP and overall length. they make the LOP for smaller shooters and usually 20" barrels instead of 22". the LOP is usually around 12.5" instead of the standard 13.5" for a full size rifle. also the lighter the rifle, the more recoil that is going to be felt.
