Stop Guessing Your Deer Weight
Deer Weight Calculator
This helpful formula will help you determine your deer’s estimated live weight, field dressed weight, hanging weight, and edible meat weight you can use the following procedure to work backward. if you know the weight of edible meat, you can calculate the live weight, field dressed weight, hanging weight, and edible meat weight. you can calculate from any weight. if you know the hanging weight, you could estimate the field dressed weight and the live weight.
We will not take venison that has been tested by the DNR for CDW. 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 or parts of the deer were 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.
Live weight x 78% = field dress weight x 75% = hanging weight x 75% = edible meat weight
Edible meat weight x 1.35 = hanging weight x 1.33 = field dressed weight x 1.26 = live weight
