Thanks for the detailed breakdown. We usually just assume we will get about 40% of the live weight back in meat.

Good job breaking that all down. I would have figured around 40 pounds depending on shot placement. I have gotten to where I can guess the meat return on a pig within about 2-3 pounds every time. Deer still surprise me from time to time though.

I am guessing the 130 lb starting weight was before field dressing? If so, that was a 36.7% yield of human eatable meat. Would be interested in knowing what the gutted weight was before starting the processing also of same deer ... if you by chance got that too???

thanks for the nice breakdown!!!

OK, I changed "Chile" to "Chili" in the pictures, now; back grin

Chili vs. Chile Powder - FineCooking
www.finecooking.com/article/chili-vs-chile-powder

Chili powder is usually a blend of ground chile pods and other spices like cumin, peppercorn, and salt. Chile powder most often refers to pure ground chile pods with few or no additives; the only way to tell is to read the ingredient label.

I always figured 33 to 40 per cent of field dress weight.
