Thread: Are My Cull Stags Big or Small

    Are My Cull Stags Big or Small

    Looking for a little help from any one who is in the know.

    Shot 2 Pricketts yesterday and the weight of them was around 140lb apiece without head, feet and coat left on.
    Both animals were born last year.

    What I wish to know is How do they compare in weight with hill animals and other stags the same age around the country.

    Im keeping a more in depth cull record this year and already noticing some big differences. As I have culled 9 stags from another area in Leicestershire last week and some 3/4 year old stags were coming in at only 150lb.
    All animals are enclosed not wild.

    Many thanks Andrew

    Most of my yearlings are around the 55-60kg mark 120-130lbs, normally young mature animals, 2 years ish around 80-120kg and mature stags 140-150kg (all these weights are skin on though, not sure from your wording whether you mean your weight is with or without skin......
