Multiply the dressed weight by 1.26 equals live weight (est.)

I had the chance this year to weigh a couple of nice bucks with the guts in them and then removed,, The first one weighed 260# then gutted weighed 202, 2nd weighed 255# then 200 so we figured insides to be 55- 60 lbs, it was quite surprising, that the guts weigh that much.. Happiness is a large Gut pile.....

There is a chest girth chart that estimates live and dressed that is pretty accurate.
