We here at Ask The Meatman developed this "Estimate Deer Weights"
Formula from over 35 years of Processing Deer.

This formula is now listed Martindale's Calculators Online.
They now have over 18,135 different calculators online that you can use FREE!


There are many excellent Hunting related calculators on this sight.

Just click here to view the Martindale's Sports and Hunting Calculators Page!


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

Live WeightX 78%=Field Dress WeightX 75%=Hanging WeightX 75%=Edible Meat Weight
Here is an example of the formula:
100 Lbs. Live WeightX 78%=78 Lbs. Field Dressed WeightX 75%=58 Lbs. Hanging WeightX 75%=43 Lbs. Edible Meat
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 WeightX 1.35=Hanging WeightX 1.33=Field Dressed WeightX 1.26=Live Weight
Here is an example of this formula:
25 Lbs. Edible MeatX 1.35=34 Lbs. Hanging WeightX 1.33=44 Lbs. Field Dressed WeightX 1.26=55 Lbs. Live Weight

 

Here's a table to estimate your deer's live weight.
Measure the girth just behind the front legs.

Deer Processing DVD and Videotape.  How to video on cutting and wrapping venison.

Our Deer Processing DVD

Watch a 5 minute clip from our Deer Processing DVD below by clicking on the arrow play button!
[The actual DVD picture will be much clearer]


This DVD is 1 HOUR & 40 minutes LONG and includes Chapter Menus for EASY Navigation!

This DVD+R Format and will play on ANY DVD Player!  Recorded on Nov. 15, 2005.

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.
