Better eating? ??????
I'll run to the store after I drop #2 off at the taxidermist and buy some rib eyes if I need to. That's a once in a lifetime critter. #5 would probably score the best but #2 gets my motor revvin

I'm with elktrack #2 is just amazing. I have meat in the freezer from a buck like that and it tastes great. Guts out and skin off asap equals quality meat.

None they are all skylined. 2 is in front of 1, 5 is quarting too hard for me. 3 or 4 are the only open options if they weren't on top of the hill

#2 with a lung shot, #1 is angled away making for a safe shot with the ridge being the bullet stop.

If that was caribou I'd shoot all five.

If this picture is pre Rut then #2 is as good as dead. If it during the Rut or after then #4 is probably the only one worth eating.

#2 for me no doubt. If I shot one like that you would have to drag us both off the mountain.

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 .

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.

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
