As I was choking on my own tongue from shock, and on the verge of passing out from excitement, I would aim at #2 and either shoot myself in the foot, or miss badly, accidentally killing #4, and of course lie about it later saying that I meant to kill that "good eater".

2 or 5 , depends on the mood at the moment .
They'll all move a bit if you have patience !
I was on the other side of the hill earlier in the day , wide open and I am the only one hunting my buddy's ranch ! laugh

I'm loving the various thoughts.
1 and 4 would be the most tender. I would wait until they went a little more left downhill for a safe shot. I would be happy with any of them and would take the first safe shot that was presented

I'd wait for a shot on #2 and you wouldn't be able to drag me away until I got it or the season ended.

99% of the "meat hunters" would fall all over themselves to kill 2 or 5!

That's why I responded the way I did. Whichever gave me the 1st safest shot.

I would shoot the first one that gave me a safe shot if I didn't choke and pass out with Carl52. I usually don't see bucks like that due to the fact 10 does would've walked by in my state and county and would have been dragging the doe already. They sure are pretty but I don't need another $400 dust collector an I am not a duster. LOL
