Daytime buck 150s maybe bigger, and the other 160s. I'd be happy to take either. Good luck

Same as GritGuy. Both nice bucks. Lose the velvet and get a big neck and they shrink up quickly. Cammeras tend to make them look bigger as well.

Where I'm at, either would make you a legend. We just don't have the gene pool. I would go after the first one that walked past! GOOD LUCK!

Hoo boy, I like them both. The first one has good long main beams and good width and will probably score a little better than the second but personally I like the mass, long tines, and symmetry of the second. I honestly cant give you a better guess at net scores than have been given unless I could put a tape to them both (and I would love to).

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

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.

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.
