    the hunter and large hunter have the same head just different length handles obviously.
    I'm not sure I would have named the Large Hunter "Large"......
    The only advantage between the two hunter models is the "Large" with it's longer handle allowing more leverage for more power in chopping and splitting. The thicker cheeks on Wetterlings don't work as well on the 2 lighter models compared to the Hudson Bay.
    The Hudson Bay outperformed in chopping, splitting, making feathers.
    The 2 hunters I would rate for light duty chores at best.

    agreed, the Hudson is awesome. hindsight is 20/20, if I had it to do over I'd have only bought the Hudson and not the others
