You may want to put a bit more specifics in your post. Otherwise, you will get answers like: "then buy one".

What type of hunting?
What type of animal will she be hunting for?
Is she recoil sensitive?
Etc., etc.,etc.

Matt you might want to move this to the "The Basics, Starting Out" forum for discussion. This really isn't the place for it.

I'm doing the same thing right now. Probably going to find her a youth model in 6mm Rem or .260 Rem.
