Thread: Trophy weight loss

    Trophy weight loss

    My brother has taken a nice buck off our shared ground. He has boiled out the head today and it weighs 606 grams clean. How much weight would you estimate it will lose during the drying out time?

    Mudman,

    It's never easy to be absolutely sure, because like most deer related issues there are variations, but the rule of thumb is about 10%+ so it will be worth having it looked at.
