Accurately Calculate Deer Weight by the
Heart Girth Measurement Method
By using a tape measure you can accurately
determine the weight of your deer. The girth of the
deer is measured, in inches, just behind the
forelegs. The heart girth measurement is converted
to pounds in the chart below. If you do not have a
tape measure, use a string. Draw the string tightly
around the deer’s chest, then measure the string
with a ruler.
