You have an option to hire 2 hunters.

The first hunter is able to kill two deers in an hour, the other hunter is able to kill one deer in an hour.

Do you, without a doubt, hire the first hunter because he has an absolute advantage?

My question is that as there is only one variable- killing deer, you cannot apply comparative advantage but do you still, without a doubt, hire the first hunter because he maximises output for the given resource or is it not possible to determine an answer?

    Since there is only one variable given, I would have plenty of doubts.
    e.g., what if the good hunter charges $300 per day while the lesser hunter charges only $100. Or, what if I have all day and only want one deer.
    So, I would answer 'no'
