Calling all Lady hunters.
Call me crazy but I am a loving husband who wants to get his wife into hunting. I wanted to hear from a few of the ladies on what gun and caliber they use or prefer. We want a rifle to use on hog in Florida and then maybe go after some bigger game this next fall.
She has shot before and isn't scared. I just want to see what other women are using so I could get an idea of what to show her. come on ladies lets hear from you. she always gets diamonds for Christmas,,time for something better.:D

Dear old Mom is slight of build and well into her fifties, and tromps around in the woods with a Rossi .44 mag lever action. She's actually taken deer with it too.

I bought my daughter a 243 but she has not killed anything but snowmen and pumpkins so far. Also consider a 7mm-08, similar to the 308 and a little less felt recoil.

She has picked 2 canidates. A Savage 308 or a Ruger American. I kinda liked the Mossberg 4x4 but heard that have some serious issues.
