Erase the last three inches off each side of number two and round the horns off at the ends !!

That'd be the one for me.

If I get to come back for a 3rd trip in a few years for Buff, I will mostly be desiring very big, scarred up, gnarly bosses. The rest is ok either way.
I chose #3 though.

Can we go with a number 4?

I like the boss of number 1. The drop and hooks of number 2. Will have to go with number 2. Wouldn't pass on any of them if given the opportunity.

That's pretty funny from my life's experience point of view as well, because my ex wife looks like an elephant and my forever wife looks like an impala.

Oh yeah, I forgot to vote.

Numero Dos for me but with a side bar.

Old Velo's favorite buffalo horn configuration is heavy bosses/battle chipped and worn, one side more or less with a complete horn and the other broken off about half way through the curl.

If that could have been option #4 here, it would have gotten my vote for sure, instead of #2.

Nonetheless, Great Question........Mongo like.

Best Regards,
Velo Dog.

Aesthetically #1
Functionally #3

#1 looks like a younger bull with incredible genetics, but not worn and hard fought.
#3 looks like a fighter who can gore as hard as he can stare, with exposed tips for the job.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.
