180 gross weight is possible. We weigh our bigger deer field dressed back at camp. We have a pulley setup with a scale that we tie onto the buck pole.

My camp tags, guts, and then drags the deer out. We let the predators and scavengers have the guts. That, and we have less weight to drag them out with that way. It's better to work smarter, not harder, after all.
