.308 Win is an excellent choice esp. when she already shoot it well. Use premium bullet (Berger VLDs, Nosler Accubond/partition, Barnes TSX/TTSX, etc ... even better if you reload), stay within the shooter's ability and set-up limitations (my unwritten rule is 1000 FT-LBS for deer and 1500 FT-LBS for elk size game at point of impact). However, shot placement is the key (1st shot as well as follow-up shots as required).
There is nothing better than hunting with your love one. I've been trying to get my wife to go out hunting with me for the last 32 years but to no avail.
Good luck and happy safe shooting/hunting.
