My deer are always at their lightest weight when they are first shot.
If they run more than 50 yards, they gain at least 10 lbs.
If they die in the thick brush, and require dragging to an opening, they gain another 10 lbs.
When lifting them onto my 4 wheeler, they gain at least 20 more pounds.
When I get back to camp and clean and hang them, they return to the original weight.

An honest weight for a good buck in our area is around 125lbs gutted, and a good doe is around 105 lbs gutted. On the average most of the bucks are around 105 lbs, and a doe is around 90 lbs.
