What's your best guess on the weight of this old guy?


In every old body lives a young person wondering what the hell happened!

250lbs live weight. 190-200lbs field dressed.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Pictures can be very deceiving on weight guesses for me. This buck looked like a tank in this pic. We had deer field dress 208-212 lbs on this ranch and this buck look to be bigger. Problem was he was way smaller, by about 50 lbs. He dressed around 165.

I agree with stxranchman, that buck will probably dress out around 170 +/- a little. I've taken several very big bodied MD bucks and it takes a monster to break 200 lbs. dressed.
