Deer Weights
(Field Dressed vs. Live Weight)
by Steve McCadams

    During this year's hunting seasons there are expected to be more than 150,000 deer harvested across the state, according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA).
    Since most of these deer will be field dressed before being checked out and weighed, many hunters are curious as to how much their deer would have weighed whole.
 The following chart can be used to estimate the whole (live) weight of whitetail deer from dressed weight.

Dressed Weight Whole Weight
50 Lbs. 64 Lbs.
60 Lbs. 76 Lbs.
70 Lbs. 89 Lbs.
80 Lbs. 102 Lbs.
90 Lbs. 114 Lbs.
150 Lbs. 191 Lbs.
160 Lbs. 203 Lbs.
170 Lbs. 216 Lbs.
180 Lbs. 229 Lbs.
190 Lbs. 242 Lbs.
