Carcass weight was 137 lbs. That's skinned, no head, lower legs removed. What say the forum on an estimated live weight?

Here's a good way to double check your guesses. The following formulas and charts are broad averages, for many different areas, and are pretty close

I think a 180-185# live weight is probably pretty close on your deer.
