    First deer. I picked up this rifle a few years ago for my best friend, Today his daughter got her first deer with it and a pretty nice buck at that.

    I have found the .30-30 to be a very balanced cartridge for deer (and bigger game) at woods ranges.

    Plenty of power and penetration, and bullet performance is very predictable, but recoil is very manageable in the typical light, easy-handling rifle. All pluses for the young hunter, and this old hunter just likes those attributes.

    Congratulations to the young lady.
