How much does/did he weigh
« on: October 28, 2020, 06:39:09 PM »
Didn’t want to hijack CA2017 Chewuch Quality Deer thread so here we go.

This is my biggest buck I have ever killed, I wasn’t able to drag him but could only pull and move him 6 to 12” at a time he was huge compared to any buck we have got.i had no way to weigh him but he was huge. What Would you guess he weighed when he hit the ground?

Live weight is what you are asking? On the hoof?

I have no idea on total live weight but that neck is probably 25 to 30 lbs by itself.  If I had to take a guess I would say that is a 350 lb deer on the hoof.

I would venture to guess about 26/27 stones.

Wow, he's thick.

It would be cool to know his live weight.

I bought a $35 hoist scale to know for sure.  I don't think I will be checking a buck of that caliber though.

The only useful gift my brother ever gave me was a deer butchering kit that has a scale.

love that last photo.  Looks like something out of Sesame St. 

As with the pics, if you're trying to judge size, you should put a known item in the pic so that the deer in question can be evaluated based on that item.    He looks like a fatty. Beyond that.  Who knows?

Pretty impossible to tell from a pic. Ive only actually weighted game bags and i could count on one hand how many times I've even done that.  Pretty standard and pretty accurate ratio is meat yield is 1/3 of live weight. So if you weigh boned out meat you can get a pretty good idea.

Whats the circumference on that freakin neck?!!!

Just butchered a 4.5 yr old avg body sized muley tonight. I trimmed meticulously, but took all parts on the hanging deer. Very minimal (2#) of bullet damage waste. 58# of perfect meat meaning no silver skin, gristle, fat, bone, or anything other that pure clean meat. That was weighed on a recently
 calibrated scale.

his neck is 30.5”” and the antlers are 28” wide for reference
