ECU and I are having a discussion on another thread, and I wanted to find out what the rest of the guys think. When reporting a deer's weight, do you go by live weight, or dressed weight?
I know that most of New England, at least Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire, it's all about dressed weight. Nothing left in the body cavity. All of the record books report dressed weight too. However, ECU and others from the south say it's all about live weight.
It makes no difference to me, but I am curious, where are you from, and how do they report weight in your area? It appears to be a regional thing.
