Given the same gross score, what is your preference? I have a tough decision to make this year.

Thanks all!

Mass and tine length over spread for me. I prefer real estate over air space.

Amen. Spread is the least important component of the score. It looks great but it's all air.

On average it only counts for 10% of the final score.

13"+ and tall or 30" wide and short. Variety is the spice of life.

Spread is a direction, quite honestly it ought to be dropped from the equation. My dad is enamored with wide bucks but I'd rather have length in balance to mass.

I like bucks that are symmetrical, narrow and tall with mass throughout.

I'd love to kill a narrow tall buck with good mass.

You say you have a tough decision...

worthless

It would help if you have a couple of pics that define what you consider narrow and tall or wide and short.

I have to say I prefer tall and narrow over wide and short but I've never shot one over 17" wide so if I could get one that's 20"+ I certainly would be tempted...if it had good mass.
