All are great but I'd shoot #1 if they were all standing  side by side.

3 for sure - unique is cool. But i am not a fan of passing on anything you would be satisfied with if it were the last day of the season.

#3 for me,  then #2. I like trashy bucks and tall/thick bucks. Which ever one of those two presented a opportunity, I'd put one down. Best of luck on either one you choose.

#3.  You can shoot "regular" bucks any time, Very likely the only 2 main beams buck you will ever see.

Whichever one makes you happy. All are nice but none are great. A year of growth might pleasantly surprise you though...

:yeah:
I’ve never hunted Montana but I wouldn’t shoot a buck in Montana that I could shoot in Washington on a general tag. Your tag your choice. Who cares what other people think.

I wouldn't shoot any of them until they got a little age on them, but thats just me.  As mentioned, its your tag so enjoy.
