Default 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.

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.
