My daughter was 12 when she shot my 450 and handled it just fine. Plenty of options to choose. Good luck to your son!
This is what I'd do personally. Youth model 350 legend.I would go .350 legend in a youth model and not even think twice. I have a compact Savage Axis II and a compact Winchester XPR for my kids and they're both great guns. Have a .450 as well and I find they enjoy shooting the .350 a lot more.
Just looking for feedback for this year's youth hunt. My son, who is 11, has shot his .410 quite a bit for small game. I'd hate to use the .410 with a rifled slug not sure if it'll do the job, but wondering what is best suited for deer during youth hunt.
So my question is this, what rifles have you used for your youth child (10-11 y/o) while deer hunting? We'll be hunting in Zone 3.
Also, the challenge I have is him being a little guy, not all rifles are seated properly for him to take aim. Do you scope it for them, and ask them to pull the trigger? Just looking for sound advice from the folks who have done this before.
I just bought my son a 350L, because it's a pain finding 44 mag ammo for his CVA. Plus the price of it has gone up considerably.A cousin of mine has 3 young daughters. He got them each a .44 mag ruger carbine. They all had success with them and none of them complained of recoil.
You know, that's not a bad idea; one weapon that can be used September through December, no recoil and no noise, fun to shoot and can be shot for practice nearly anywhere and any time. Only downside I can think of is range.
When u hunt the Jungle there's no such thing as a far shot 😎You know, that's not a bad idea; one weapon that can be used September through December, no recoil and no noise, fun to shoot and can be shot for practice nearly anywhere and any time. Only downside I can think of is range.
