How to Estimate Deer Weight

Stop guessing your deer's weight. This useful chart will help you determine your deer's estimated live weight, field dressed weight and edible meat weight.

Some things to remember:
1. Measure the animal just behind the front legs (girth)
2. Field dressed = body cavity cleaned out (no heart, lungs, ect..)
3. Weight is in pounds (lbs.)
