It’s just a logo but I’d guess #1 is an in his prime breeding bull. He needs to be left alone to spread those genes.

#2 I’d guess is close to the end of his prime.

#3 is the grumpy old fart most likely out of his prime.

Would like to hear Dr Robertson’s opinion. I know he’s a member but can’t think of his AH handle.

Not an expert @MT Griz, but he looks like a solid hard boss old bull to me especially with all the balding. I like it!

Not very much interested in the shape. The bull must be at least 12-years old, horns can be broken off, must have a solid boss of 16“ and more, don‘t like gap between horns.

That‘s my ideal. But much more counts the hunt itself. But never would I shoot a buff younger than 12. Rather no buffalo than a youngish one.

I assume we are just looking at shape and not width. If the ears are @36 inches tip to tip. #1 looks like it is 45+. While #3 looks under 40. Given that they are the same age I would take one with width being more important than shape to me. My two cents.
