Weight wise, a mature buck of this species is reported to weigh 185 to 200 lbs. Very similar to a northern whitetail.

The lower photo shows the world record Eld's deer as reported by Records of Exotics. I've watched the video titled, Hunting the Super Exotics, which features Ken Warner hunting Eld's deer and other animals. The Eld's deer shown on his video are a little smaller racked with reddish fur. Yet very impressive to my eyeballs.

Current cost to hunt a trophy Eld's deer in Texas is about $8,500. A lot of money for the average hunter to spend on a single animal. Yet a genuine bargain for the dedicated(and wealthy)trophy hunter as hunting in SE Asia is anything but simple to arrange.
