All of what you list are good points, but there is just something about a pretty buck too! I was lucky enough to get this guy on my grandfather's ranch the first year I hunted it a few years after he died. He was 16" long on both sides when I first got him.
He was long but not heavy, but a freak buck! I loved the way my buddies buck has both horns that tip out over his face.
Now this is an awesome buck. I took a picture of him at the Boone & Crockett club here in Missoula. He is huge!
