I may be real wrong, but I bet that most hunters are real happy if they kill a high 70's inch scoring buck and that also goes for the blue chip areas. Most can't keep their finger off the trigger or spend the days and time need to kill an 82 inch buck. Been there myself and seen more that a few others shoot a decent buck that was close to their rig or road. The poster didn't really say what caliber of buck he was looking for. I've been in a few areas that were not even green chip and found a few that would make most happy, especially a NR with limited time and knowledge of the area. Just my observations from the last 3 seasons hunting antelope in WY.
So where to spend 4 or 5 points is a moot point if your not looking for > 82 in buck.
