In that scenario, #1 is getting it.

However, I think #2 is the best looking deer of the three.

Well, if you don't have a P and Y, #2 will put you in the book. And I love a symmetrical rack.
However, #1 has great mass and character. But as an atypical, prolly not a book deer.
Tough decision.

#1 will easily make the P&Y non-typical minimum of 155” with at least 15” of abnormals.

#2 will do, I’ve killed a few deer with drops and passed up a low fence 160+ double drop low fence. #2 looks like will net over 200, if #3 had some longer tines he might be a no brainer.

Number 3 is pretty typical deer for the Freer, Encinal, Cotulla areas. I have seen numerous, wide racked bucks in those areas, that look a lot like that buck. I would bet that area, is where that buck was shot. Most every buck I have seen that was around 24" wide or wider, had short tines like that and were from the area I listed. That's why I chose number 2. I have only seen a couple bucks in my life that were really wide and had nice length tines, they look massive when they have both.
