what would be a good gun for a 10 and 13 year olds to use for deer and turkey would like on for both them to use that doesnt kick alot but will still make a clean kill
You are pretty limited when you say deer and turkey. A 20 gage shot gun is about it, but it has a kick to it. Now that can be controlled with limbsaver recoil pad and by using a pump, better yet an auto loader, for added weight of shells in the magazine. I am not a fan of auto loaders for new shooters though. Watch out for the single shot 20's that are labeled youth guns. they tend to be light and perceived recoil is more. You should use a pellet or 22 rim fire to teach them to shoot and gun safety first instead of jumping right to a gun with some oomph behind it. Just a suggestion.

:goodposting: also try looking into a 410 shootgun
can't hunt turkeys or deer in NH with a 410.
I'm pretty sure most of the states are the same, but don't know for sure.

Unfortunately, you really need a separate gun for each. A 20 ga which would be tolerable for kick, may be a bit light for turkeys and just ok for deer using slugs. Savage made combination guns, rifle on top of a shotgun. Some states allow the use of these. This is not a easy fix. Most of us were in your position as youngsters and you will find a gun to meet your immediate needs. Just think on it and don't be in a hurry to buy something. I started with a 16 ga remington shotgun, this was a good compromise at the time I was 14.
