Any other time I have stated a deer's weight everyone comes out of the woodwork to tell me how wrong I am. I don't need a huge response but I'd like to see PedroPuffer and a few other "Experts" chime in.

Why do you keep gettingolder in the pictures?

You post the weights and the experts will call you a liar. That's how things work around here.

I keep getting heavier too, lol. Seriously though, I state I make a hard shot, give vague details and get called unethical. I state a dead deer I found last year weighs over 220 and get called a liar and an idiot, then I post a buck my buddy killed that dressed well over 200 and get told I don't know anything and that the deer weighs 145 on the hoof.

Here is the pic that prompted me to start this thread. He didn't weigh it but I told him it dress well over 200, my guess would be it dressed 215-220.

Who wants to bet that Petro won't post a weight on this thread?

It's odd, I know he was perusing the board when I started this.

Well, I wasn't going to rip anyone's head off, it was going to be light except for the guy that has basically called me an unethical liar. But alas, no one wanted to play. [8D]

The weights were:

113, 117
135
125
137

The 113 and 117 weights really threw me off, I expected them to at least be 130. Prior to them I didn't have my own scale so I guesstimated most of the time and not surprisingly thought the deer weighed more than they did.One guy on our land shot a deer that weighed 57 pounds, that's the smallest deer I have seen shot to date, he paid $35.00 to get it cut up too, haha.

I would have guess about 10 pounds heavier for each one. I shot some heavy whitetails here in PA. The heaviest weighed in at 154 dressed until this past year. I know this deer dressed out over 200 lbs. One, because I had one heck of a time moving him and hadto call myson to help. And just look at the pic. I am 5'10" and weight 215. This deer dwarfs me.
