Choosing A Rifle for Women and Young Hunters
by Cindy Wamsley
Talk to any rifle hunter and you’ll discover that everyone has a favorite rifle chambered in their favorite caliber. Several factors may make it special such as tradition, manufacturer, style, looks, performance, dependability, function, features, caliber, recoil, weight and quality to name a few. More important than personal preference, consider the following. Does the rifle fit you? Is the length of pull correct? Does the scope have proper eye relief? Is the cartridge suitable for the game your hunting and above all can you shoot it?
Remington Model 7
by Luke Moffat
Like many hunters, I still have my very first big game rifle, and it still gets used in the field every year. When I was 13 years old, my dad bought me a stainless/synthetic Remington Model 7 in .308 Winchester. I had no idea at the time what a little gem it truly was, but I was excited and wanted to go put it to use. Nearly 15 years later, the rifle still goes with us on nearly every trip and is responsible for a respectable portion of our harvests.
