    Whats the average carcase weight of buck or doe

  2. #2
    From Norma Chapmans book:

    The average weight for adults over 2 years old are 14.4kg for buck (although exceptionally can be up to 23kg) and 12.0kg for a doe.
    These are whole body weights
    dressed weights are typically about 68% of whole weight.
    Below is a link to my website.
    Quad sticks

    Quite small round here. The few I have shot have given me about 5 kilos of meat. I am only starting to weigh the carcass now before skinning.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    Cheers
