This, although I'd be a tad bit more generous. Give em each 5 more inches imho.

Thank you! Things are good, just older and seems like there's never enough time.

Top one yes. Bottom one didn't try.

Top one is 6.5 this year.

10 point is 5.5 this year. Not sure if I'd shoot him or not. From my experience you really need to let them get to 6.5 to see their maximum potential. Sure it's more common to see a 5.5 year old and easier to kill but the majority I've seen have maxed out at 6.5.

Your thoughts are closet to mine, including hunting only when the wind is right.

Top one is 22 points. I'm saying main frame 10 that will go 160ish. 12 extra points at average 3" each. 160 plus 36" trash equals 196" plus or minus.

Bottom one I'm right with you...175" Boone 10 point

Top one has lots of junk to add and without all the stuff is probably 170ish clean. Bottom is hard to say as mass is deceptive but is pushing B&C. Depends on who you are, where you can hunt and what you e killed to date. All personal goals. Both are huge by 99% of hunters standards. I consider anything over 150" really really nice and will shoot 135" all day with my history. May change someday. Hunt both, good to have 3-4 properties/bucks to not burn any out.

What will these two score? Which one would you spend more time hunting?

Darn, Im late to the party. I was going to say neither of those 2 are anything less than 170" on my first look!

Id say Good Luck, but you don't need luck, just the right weather and wind! Have fun!

Velvet scoring is tough! The first buck has a TON of stuff going on around the bases and brows. Plus some kickers of the G's. He's going to score very close to 180 with all the extra trash is my guess. The second buck is also going to be right there around 180 as a clean 10. What he loses in main beam length to the first buck, he makes up for in mass. Both are outstanding bucks! I'd have a hard time sleeping knowing they are both around!

You have an the opportunity to hunt both (or either) of these bucks...what you have is a "first world" hunter problem. I'd say I sympathize with your dilemma, but I don't. I'll go out to my small parcel in Penn's Woods and hope for a either a fat doe or a decent 6-pointer.

Good luck.
