My thoughts are that it is just personal preference, and that's ok. It's just one reason (and there are many) why no one hunter gets it all. I personally like tones first, numbers second. Numbers can be tricksters. What the heck......a screw cap, the last time I got that number it was a gold ring. Numbers are fun though. They make for good conversation after a hunt. If your in a good area though.....dig it all!!
