Golden,
A 270 maybe a little lite a friend of mine hunted with a 270 a couple years ago and and it took three well placed shots to bring it down. I would use something around a 300 mag. My daughter took one this year with a 270 whby mag so It can be done just make sure you practice. If you get drawn I will help you out. If you would like to you can give me a call at 505-334-2829 after 6:00pm mountian time.
Talk to ya soon Kevin,
