Allow me reshape the question into deer hunting terms. Here's what I mean:
Let's say Mary Ann represents (specific to antlers) a typical whitetail (such as my tall-tined South Dakota buck below), and Ginger represents a non-typical whitetail. I think the analogy works because Mary Ann is the "girl next door," and bucks with typical antlers are far more common than bucks with non-typical antlers.
So, Mr. Deer Hunter: Ginger or Mary Ann?
With apologies to my seventh-grade crush, sweet Mary Ann, I have to say Ginger. There's simply something about an exotic non-typical buck (such as "Kickstand," the Saskatchewan drop-tine bruiser I tagged below) that fascinates me and occupies my treestand daydreams.
How about you? Visit the to forums and weigh in on whitetails: Ginger or Mary Ann?
