Big Nevada Elk gets a Howa Handshake!

I just wanted to send you a photo of my wife Kaysie’s bull that she harvested in Nevada with a Howa 1500 chambered in .270 Win. I bought her the rifle a few years back and that triggered her to start hunting. Since then she has harvested a blonde bear, a 4 point buck, and this monster 6×7 elk that scored 370. Thanks!

Long story short, it was just Kaysie and I and she killed it in the wilderness at 298 yards with one shot. We had a 16 mile round trip pack out to get it all out with the help of my 59 year old dad. We were spiked out in the wilderness with our camp on our backs. We had to earn this one for sure!
