We have 2 of the Flambeou (sp?) boss bucks and love them. This year we bought the boss babe. We will try her out soon. Last year we had good luck with the buck even in early season. My avitar picture is of a 146" buck that came into the boss buck on Oct 13 looking for a fight. We had alot of activity all season with it. I even shot a large doe that came into the buck in November. I would start out with a buck maybe one that looks good without the antlers so you could use it either way.
