    Just meat and bones was 100lbs. On the hoof I would say near 150 or so.

    That is a fair size, and good eating, too. I usually do all of mine in ground with a little made into jerky strips. :) YUM YUM :)

    I had a couple of those in my yard the other day. One of my dogs took off after them.

    Nice goin' Ryan. I've been trying for one but just haven't been very lucky. I've had a loud grunt thrown back at me through the pines and I scared off something heading into the woods this past Saturday. Eventually... :D

    I'm attempting to take several does and/or bucks with a Barnet Quad 400 crossbow topped with Rage 2-blade broad heads. We'll see how that works out... :D

    Congratulations! :)

    That is an Easton 400gn Litespeed. With a muzzy 100gn 3 blade. It went in just above the breast bone and went out just before the 4th to the last rib. I did not get the arrow out till I found him. Also where it borke off was what was sticking out when he was shot.
