Which one would you shoot if they walked out together? Double drop or big 10?
Sorry pics are terrible. One buck county.

Probably shoot the first one because he is unique and may never get another like him. That said, the 10 is a great deer and I would struggle not killing him. Decisions, decisions!!!!

If the question is which one would i shoot at...panic, and then miss...well, that’s easy...probably the drop tine....or maybe the #2...ok, it’s not that easy...but i would for sure miss...

If they both walked out with equal shot opportunities, then #1.

Other than that, it would be the one I saw first.

The 10 the drop looks like he could go a couple more years. And I have a question what cameras are you using? Just so I don't buy any.

That double drop is a very unique buck, I would be waiting and hunting him hard. The 10 is nice but I don't really care for crab clawed deer but that's just me and I do have some on the wall with crabs but not drops.
