Can someone tell me how to estimate a deer's live weight? Thanks in advance!
Return to Deer Taxidermy Category Menu
Multiply the dressed weight by 1.26 equals live weight (est.)
or try this site for other formulas:
Askthemeatman.com has a chart on how to estamate live weitht
Thanks for your help!
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.....
The formula works
There is a chest girth chart that estimates live and dressed that is pretty accurate.
