Average wieght of a mature whitetail in your area.

and

Feel free to list the heaviest whitetail you have taken.


Here in my area of NJ, there is mostly private farmland. Seems that, from speaking with other hunters, the average wieght of an adult whitetail is in the 230lbs for bucks, range. 150lbs for doe range Not calling you a liar, but I find this hard to believe. Top end maybe, but not average. I hunt in IL and there are some monsters killed in my area. Not many bucks top out over 200 field dressed. My heaviest was 240 FD.
And a 150 pound doe is a horse, can't see them averaging that weight. My heaviest doe was 147 FD



I see these guys in the mid-west smacking 300lbs bucks and 250lbs doe !!! Thats BEAST !! Not in the Mid-West I live in. Maybe CANADA, but still rare there.
And I would also like to know how many are actually weighed on a scale. Not just by someone looking at it and saying it weighs 200 pounds.

Depends on the time of the season its taken. An October buck will generally weigh more than a mid November buck, and the mid November buck should weigh more than a late season buck due to rutting/chasing does and eluding hunters. My biggest dressed weight buck weighed in at 231 lbs. I've seen a few bucks much bigger, of course they eluded me.

The ones actually weighed tend to be quite a bit lighter then those "questimated".

Mature bucks usually go about 180lbs, meanwhile a mature doe will go about 150.

My biggest deer was a 160lbs doe, my father got a 185lbs 9 pointer and that was a hog

I would say a mature buck which I say is over 3.5 years old would weigh around 180-200lbs and a mature doe around 150,both of these are live weight.

I'd say 100-130 for a doe and 150-175 on a buck.These are averages only.Myheaviest buck was 208 and he wasn't all that old,3.5 at best.
