You can use the following formula to work backwards. If you know the weight of edible meat, you can calculate the hanging weight, field dressed weight, etc.. You can calculate from any weight. If you know the hanging weight, than you could estimate the field dressed weight and the live weight.
Edible Meat Weight
Field Dressed Weight
Here is an example of this formula:
25 Lbs. Edible Meat
34 Lbs. Hanging Weight
44 Lbs. Field Dressed Weight
55 Lbs. Live Weight
Here's a table to estimate your deer's live weight. Measure the girth just behind the front legs.
Live Weight (in pounds)
I've included a calculator here for you to calculate the estimated weights of your deer.

This is an instructional video detailing the processing of a white tail deer. We show the breakdown of the entire animal and wrapping/storage techniques.
Follow along as we demonstrate how to prepare boneless hind quarter (ham) steaks, butterfly chops, tenderloins, roast and ground deer.
We charge $50.00 to process a white tail deer in the above manner. With the use of this video, hunters can spend a fraction of this cost processing their own deer.
Field Dressed is body cavity cleaned out (no heart, lungs, intestines, etc..)
Hanging Weight is the field dressed deer minus the head, feet and hide.
Edible Meat Weight will vary depending upon: How the deer is processed and How many times the deer was shot and what part(s) of the deer was shot. For Example, if the whole deer is boned out completely, you will receive approximately 50% to 60% of the Hanging Weight in Edible Meat.
