Only thing better'n spending time in the outdoors with your children is when THEY bag the trophy!
Good shooting young lady - nice buck!
Good job there Dad - making the memories that last a lifetime!
Congradulations to you Both!
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.
