    I dont know mate, I thought I had done well with a 30lb Muntie buck clean a couple of years ago but I recon yours are on steroids

    Max the area that you stalk can produce some excellent muntjac. I've seen does just short of 30Lbs and bucks 35Lb.

    I have had them around the 30lb+ mark,but the other afternoon I saw two Does together that were the largest I have ever seen,so watch this space for the next time I come across them with a backdrop.

    Had a pregnant doe a few weeks ago who was 35lbs clean - very fatty tho so not much meat... wish I'd gone for the neck shot as .243 ruined half of her and rear end had dodgy tinge to the meat. Presumably due to proximity to birth but unsure!

    As you have worked out I'm sure anything in the 30's is a good larder weight. 38lbs is exceptional imo
