Please help in choosing optionals for Forest Service Exam

Friends,

This is the first time I have decided to apply for IFoS along with civils. Though I have scored consistently high in prelims I had never applied for it as I thought it would affect my Civils (mains) preparation. The change in exam calendar has provided a period of about 2 months to prepare for IFoS mains after Civils mains. Thus I want to pursue IFoS seriously this time.

I have decided upon Forestry as one of the optional. Choosing the second one has been a big challenge. Btw my Civils optional is Sociology. So far based on my research by going through the syllabus, previous question papers I have short listed the following :

1. Geology
2. Animal Husbandry & Veterinary Science
3. Zoology
4. Botany

I request you all to please share your views,experience wrt to the above optionals and help me out in selecting the ideal one among them.
I shall bomb the world one day !!

    geology is toughest of all the branches so leave it , ek saal mein bhi nahi hoga 2 months is too short. Animal husbandry i have no idea
  • Geology le lo bhai, chota syllabus hai aur samjh bhi ajyega
