I don't need to own three of them although it would be nice, but if I had to pick only one it would be Frontiersman. So I did.

Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

Although Frontiersman originally was not high on my wish list, my appreciation of it has grown tremendously with time. Several EM pinball aficionados have told me how much they have enjoyed playing theirs.

It is the gameplay, not just the artwork that puts this one on top for me. It gets played and played and played and more played. It is not my only woodrail, but it is the one I have from the list you provided. I have a friend with many more so I have had good exposure to them and I know what I like.

Quoted from Boatcat:

I see no lack of love, just lack of production numbers, actual survivors, and collectors willing to part with the ones they own.

It gets even harder when you start looking into the more desirable Williams titles of this era that rarely if ever come up for sale.

Quoted from vanilla:

In your opinion, what are the more desirable Williams titles of this era? Just curious.

They never made as many as Gottlieb, both in the amount of different games and production runs of those games and didn't keep a record on many so how many are or were out there remains a mystery. But there are still quite a few gems like Nags, Sea Wolf, Gusher, and Rocket to name a few. But those don't come up very often and usually command a high price if in nice condition.

Quoted from vanilla:

The pinballcollectorswebsite has no owners. IPSND has two old numbers.

Besides that and the few pics on ipdb, there really isn't much info out there about it so chances are not many have heard of it let alone played it. I noticed the same thing when I picked up Rocket and Pinky but this one seems even scarcer than that. It has a neat layout and looks fun to play but won't make too many peoples lists because they may have never come across one.

Definitely worth finding. Who's got one of those?

A guy I know has a Freshie and offered to bring it to me but never showed up, so I bought something else at the time. I think it is a neat looking game. I ended up with another impulse flipper game instead, Pinky and really enjoy it.
