Savage Model 11 "kit" in .243 is an excellent choice. My 16 yr old daughter is using the very same rifle this year to hunt. Hope to have some pics for y'all soon.
My sons both use the Savage Model 111 in .270. Each has their own, mainly due to one being a lefty and the other a right handed shooter. Savage makes a quality rifle and both sons have had successful seasons using them.
