The 300 and 380 are overkill for deep woods. The 200 has enough grunt for sand yet is very light and nimble for the tight stuff. You see them titled and plated on a regular basis.
+1 this is a great woods weapon do just about anything dirtbike.
If you need a little more grunt the ktm 250xcw or xc are great choices.
If you want to 4 stk I don't think you can beat the KTM 400 XCW. I have had 3 of them over the years , a simply amazingly reliable and fun to ride bike. PS I have one for sale if anybody is interested.
If you want to go old school but reliable an old Honda XR250 will go
