    I am not exactly too clever on computers but wondered if anybody would be interested in doing an SD largest weights of all 6 species in the uk in a similar fashion with name county adn weight ,date,Thought it would be interesting to see how the deer vary across the country and could be usefull information in general.May be talking out of may backside and may not be easy to do but would be interested in anyone thoughts on it

    Interesting idea but you'd have to be clear in what state the carcass was weighed, gralloched but with pluck in, in the jacket, etc., so there is a fair comparison. Some of the Devon reds go to 500lbs or more and some southern fallow bucks are as big as an average Scottish red stag.

    Are you saying that the AVERAGE weight of all the bucks you shoot in Ayrshire (including yearlings and immature animals) with head and legs off and pluck removed is over 20kg?.
