This is the youth package I bought my son once he became a qualified apprentice hunter. Available in .243 or .308 caliber, it is a great deal that comes with quality optics mounted and bore sighted.

A couple of trips to the range, some fine tuning, and he was raring to go for last year’s whitetail season, and the price can’t be beat.

2. Remington 700 ADL Bolt-Action Rifle and Scope Combos

The world famous 700 series also provides an excellent youth package.

The 700 was the first deer rifle I bought and it now provides a robust youth model in a more compact package in .243 Winchester. It also come ready to go with a Bushnell scope, bore sighted and ready for dialing in at the range.

3. Savage Arms AXIS Youth Compact Bolt-Action Rifles

Another ergonomically sized deer rifle for the youth hunter, this one allows the buyer to choose what optics to mount for the hunting season.

Chambered in recoil friendly .223 Remington, .243 Winchester or 7mm-08 Remington this is a great introductory rifle for young people. It also comes at a bargain price.

4. Remington Centerfire Youth/Compact Rifle

Available in .243 Winchester, this is another great rifle and scope combo that is excellent for youth and small-statured deer hunters.

With mild recoil it will allow your young shooter to develop excellent marksmanship skills to take down that first deer. Based on the reliable 700 models this easy to use and smooth action is an excellent choice.
