Default Average Deer Size in Your Neck of the woods?

I was curious as the the average size/weight of bucks and does in your neck of the woods?
I am more curious in weight, but feel free to give an idea of racks as well.
In Minnesota I would say that an averagemature doe will go in the 130-150lbs dressed and a mature buck about 190-210lbs dressed.

Thanks.

Our bucks and does are around 120-150lbs. The racks are anywhere from 6 to 10 on a mature buck. We have antler restrictions here so a buck has to have atleast 3 points on one side in the east part of the state and 4 points on one side on the other so we are seeing alot bigger racks on out deer. I wish that had more mass to the antlers though.

A big buck can go from anywhere from 200-300lbs and doe about 150-250lbs dressed out. But it really depends on what time of year.

I don't know about live weight, but we've weighed a lot of field dressed deer over the years...

Here in Steuben County, NY, a 1.5 year old buck will usually dress out from 100 to 120 pounds...A 2.5 year old will weigh from 130 to 150 dressed.. Anything over 150 is a 3.5 year old or older...Typically a mature buck will weigh 150 to 175, dressed... I've hunted here since the early 60s, and the heaviest buck I've ever seen on the scales weighed 185 dressed, and he was killed early in bow season when he was rolling in fat..

I've heard reliable reports of local bucks that dressed over 200, but I have yet to actually see one...Most 200 lb + bucks reported around here were weighed with the EYEBALLS rather than with the scales...

Any doe around here that weighs over 100-110 dressed is a pretty big doe...

A 1 1/2 year old buck or doe - 125 lbs or so on the hoof, maybe 40 lbs boneless meat.

Does top out around 150 or so.

2 1/2 buck would be in the 150-160 range, 3 1/2 in the 180 range, and top out right around 225-250 lbs for a heavy buck.

I am from new york.

The average doe is between 120-160
The average buck runs from 100-180

Reason for such a low weight is too many outsiders on public land. They take deer way to soon. Average age for a buck in my area is 2.5.
sucks hugh
