Congrats on the new toy. If your wife wants to give it away she can ship it to me. Ive been wanting to buy one for awhile now but havent justified forking out the money for it yet.
Keep me posted on how it works and what antlers worked better for you.
I would think that if your in a "big boys" neighborhood he would not care what kind of buck it is. Big or small he would want to get a closer look and possibly try to kick his butt. Dont take my word for it since Ive never used one. Thats just my 2 cents.
