Which one...

it occurred to me that this last deer season I had the classic debate lined up for yoru preference in bucks. Where I had one old timer, a symetrical perfect buck and one non-typical. The three of them were all at the top of the list all season and would have taken any one of them.  Got close once but it never happened.  

So - Not that this would ever happen...... but....... If all three of these bucks are in the field in front of you at 20 yards which one do you shoot? 

Thought about this and might be a good off season topic. It was a cool year to have this as a possiblity that one of these could step out.

me and my hunting buddy talked about it a couple of times.  I got close to sending one on the perfect 8 point but the other two i never saw in the stand. Just was neat to hope one might pop out and kind of a unique situation to have those 3 being the main targets all so different.   My choice would have been the 6 pointer as he has been around so long and outsmarted us for several years.

I always think of this painitng when considering this. "If you were 20yds away, which would you take?". Tough call..

Of the 3 you have, and this is a cop out, but the truth, whichever one gave me a clean shot first :)

I have an original numbered print of that picture in my reading room. I have looked at it countless times and wondered........which one.

As for the question above? I like old bucks. If I knew the age of all three, I'd take the oldest one. Regardless of what his rack looked like.

It's a great hunting property to have three bucks like that on it!

thanks, we usually only have one real big buck (or at least what i call big) but this last season was great. Although i only got to see one of them in the stand it was awesome to know they were nearby. I think the improvements we have done the last couple of years are helping.  More to do this season! and hoping these guys make it to this October.
