Hey guys, my buddy Randy Levingston, arrowed this nice 8 point buck at the Atcahafalaya Delta WMA, back in November. For more info on the hunt check out my column Public Ramblings. http://www.louisianasportsman.com/details.php?id=7478

I would like to conduct a poll on what you guys think this buck weighs. Randy weighs 189 lbs. The buck was weighed on the scale at the Game Wardens' camp when we checked him in. Give me your best educated guess and I will let you know the actual weight soon.

Actual weight
The buck weighed 168 lbs on the game warden's scale at the check in. This was the whole weight before field dressing. When we got home, I weighed it on my 300 lb scale. It said 130 lbs which would make it 168-169 lbs whole weight, so their scale was accurate. My dad and everyone else that we showed the pictures too all said over 200 lbs. Just goes to show that pictures can sometimes be deceiving. Apparently as some of you said the buck was short, therefore limiting the weight. But the neck was huge and dragging him out sure felt like a ton. Thanks guys for taking time to join is the discussion. Happy holidays!

Mybay knows his buck weights. I ran this poll on another site and 18 guys guessed 200 lbs or more. I would have guessed 200 if I saw the same picture.

Every deer that is not weighed in La and Ms are at least 200 lbs! I dont think most rednecks have ever even seen a 200 lb deer unless hunting delta ground.Same goes for turkeys, they are all 20lbs until a scale is brought out.
