    Brow tines for everything to me.
    I grew up in PA hunting whitetails so maybe that's why.

    Where I hunt it's rare for the muleys to have them at all. Maybe 10 percent do. And usually short.
    Where I've hunted in north texas nearly all do have them. And good ones

    I use them pretty much interchangeably. It doesn't matter what kind of deer or elk. Any given time I'll switch it around.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    Deer have always been eye guards and brow tines on elk.

    Come to think of it, on elk for the last couple of years I just call them fronts, typically when describing overall potential scoring of the animal.

    I’ve always called them eye guards on deer and brow tines on elk. Deer the eye guards don’t count as a point either, a four point with eye guards is still a four point, not a five point and damn sure not a ten point.
