It looks like a couple of them you preserved the velvet? Archery? Them are some hog archery bucks if so. My best friend is a better archery shot than I am, so when we stalked into the the biggest buck I’ve ever seen- I said he should take the shot. His rangefinder said 60 yards and mine said 35 yards, we bickered while 13 bucks sat at 35 yards. It was comical looking back, ultimately I told him to just shoot for whatever he wants and that I wasn’t going to argue. His rangefinder didn’t account for slope, mine did. He shot over. All hell broke loose and we single handedly educated 13 bucks that it was opener.
I’ve wrote off the X zone I used to hunt because I prefer the Coastal zones. In my experience there is more deer in the B zones than in the X zones but it’s a lot easier to see the deer in the more open X zones making it seem more deer dense.
Both were OTC B zone bucks. The one in “velvet” I had redone as the original velvet went to crap, too long in 110* temps before I got it treated. The hard horn was out of the Alps, about killed me getting it out. Only buck I saw, saw 2-3 bears for every deer lol.
Have hunted all 4 B’s, all 4 C’s, A, one G (Three times), one M (Twice), and 3 of the X zones multiple times. All held decent amounts of deer and good bucks if you could put up with the temps, poison oak, cats, and cartels
