Okay, I know the short answer to this question would be to take the more mature buck. So...If these two bucks ever present themselves to me in daylight, and I have to choose which one...which should I pick. The 10 pointer is wider,...and I believe older. However, the 9 pointer is much taller. I am not sure which deer would score better. I am on a low fence property, so both are potential shooters. What do yall think? Age, and which would score better....which would you choose. Thanks in advance.

Both would score very similar I think and if it were me I'd kill the 10 and let the 9 walk another year.


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Anybody else have any input on this? Which would be a more admirable kill?

The 10 but honestly I’d give them both another year.

If you were not going to shoulder mount him, shoot the one you like the LEAST, so the other will breed more AND you can hunt him next year
