i personally hunt for meat, if i shoot a deer, i will generally take the first one to walk out.
iof both are bucks i will more than likley shoot the bigger one as it more meat, regarless of rack size.
alot of does are also bigger than bucks, so if i have a doe tag, i would shoot her over a buck.
it all depends on what my cams show in the area for what i target, but the freezer is the goal..........if it so happens to have a massive rack.....well thats a bonus trophy, not my goal.
i also small game hunt like crazy, again freezer in mind.
i dislike seeing people moan and complain on how hunting is wrong, yet they eat meat.
meat and trophy hunting are seperate, and i dont condone trophy hunting, i see it as a bonus to meat hunting.
my $0.02 take it or leave it.
