How long is a piece of string. So much depends on when, where, age etc. that weights can go from 70lb to 300lb quite easily.

Many thanks for a quick reply, Im going for a stalk on reds in Norfolk in the next couple of weeks and was thinking of buying the carcase so was just after a rough idea of what i should expect to pay.

Bear in mind that Norfolk reds are likely to be far better nourished than their Scottish cousins and, as a result, considerably bigger. The animals I have seen in the county are MONSTERS.


Expect to pay 300 notes and you wont be far wrong i shot a beast last season and its hook weight was considerably more than 400 llbs and he was not the biggest in the group. ;)
