The Abino/Melanistic thread got me thinking. ( I know that's dangerous)

1. If the opportunity presented itself and a 150" 10 point chased a Melanistic (pure black like the photo) doe into your setup, you had a buck and a doe tag.

Which would you shoot?

I thought about and I'd honestly take the doe. In my lifetime I've never seen one and obviously a rarer trophy than a 150" buck.

2. Which would you choose between a 150" 10 point and an albino doe? I'd take the doe.

3. Which would you choose between a 150" 10 point and a 100" white/but not albino buck? I'd take the 100" white buck.

A 150" buck is a slammer no doubt, but around here it isn't that once in a lifetime trophy, many are dropped locally every year with much bigger ones as well. A black or white deer at least for my area, is an opportunity of many lifetimes.....much rarer than a big buck.

Around here a 150" buck IS a trophy of a lifetime......but I'd still choose the same ones you did, Rob.

1. Melanistic doe
2. 150 ten pt. (albinos are illegal in Illinois)....Getting a deer into P&Y book sounds good to me.
3. 100" white buck

Those are tough questions. I'm kinda torn about 1&2. I would shoot the 150" in #3 hoping I would get a chance at the 100"er in a few years.

Different colors don't really excite me that much.

The 150 incher is getting my arrow.

If I had a bunch of 150+ bucks on my wall...my answer might be different...but I can't pass on a buck of that caliber.
