deer the easy way
By CHARLIE PARSONS Outdoors Writer
New Year’s is here, leaving just a few days of deer hunting. The season closes one-half hour after sunset on Sunday.
Don’t worry though, ducks and Boose are legal game through Jan. 18 and the light geese (snow, blue and Ross’) stay in the picture an extra weekv ending on Jan. 25. Also on the agenda are quail, over
in February, and Sandhill cranes become fair in most of South Texas Jan. 3 through Feb. 8.
But, back to deer. Since most hunters immediately field dress their deer after bagging them, a
live animal weight is impossible to obtain.
I’ve often been asked: "How much did my 85-pound dressed buck weigh live?” Because this is repeated many times, here are some graphs compiled from 200 deer in GOOD body condition taken off the Kerr Wildlife Management Area. Since these are typical Edwards Plateau deer, the graphs are applicable to deer taken throughout the HUI Country They are also prt guides for South Texas deer and those from other areas of the state.
Remember — dressed weight means "field dressed” with head, hide and feet left on the carcass.
Find dressed weight of buck in figures at bottom of cnarf and trace line up to diagona From intersection, trace line to scale at left and read live weight. Reverse this procedure to determine dressed weight ol live anima1
Does are lighter than bucks so a different chart must be used. As above, fma caressed weight cf doe in sea e a* bottom trace up to diagona', then from intersection trace line to le*t and read estimated live weight
