"Which one would you shoot???"

I just got to thinking which buck would you shoot if these two brutes were running together?


Buck #1


or Buck #2


I think it would be a hard decision. I like big typicals and I also like unique bucks with lots of extras.

I think it's boom on the typical for me.

Which one would you shoot?

#2 for me. Both nice bucks though. Probably also depended on situation. Both broadside. I take #2. Now if #1 presents better shot and I'm nervous about both getting away, #1 gets the hammer.

These are Wyoming deer so I'm talking about Wyoming.
Now, if we're talking about the south slopei wouldn't have to worry about passing these two bucks, because I wouldn't see one this big.

I would probably shoot #2, but if they were standing together, I'd probably get a citation.

15 years ago when a trophy buck in Wyoming had to be 30 inches, I would have passed on both. Today, trophy bucks are usually 22-26 inches. So, either will do.

Side-by-side probably #2, but I like non-typicals, so it would be a hard pick. They are both great bucks.

#2 for me....congrats on both deer.

elk is just jealous that you can get close to deer like that to take a shot. Usually, elk scares them off half a mile away when they hear his wheeler speeding down the 2 track.

Cancer doesn't discriminate...don't take your good health for granted because it can be gone in a heartbeat. Please go back and read the last line. This time really understand what it says.

About a toss up. Great mass and character with number one, but probably number two.

How wide is number one and two. Just interested.

#1. Older buck with more mass. And character.

Were both bucks killed in the same general area?

Number 2 looks really good hanging on your wall. It will be interesting to see how no. 1 looks next to it when you get it back from the taxidermist.

Both of them have a lot of good memories associated with them. Pretty good bucks considering your #1 target bucks were killed by other hunters that were a little closer at daylight on opening morning the last two years.

Nice bucks! I would be happy to drop either of those bucks, but given the choice would most likely settle my crosshairs on number 2 first! Nice deer!
