In eastern Iowa, even pre-rut I have seen fully mature 5+ year old bucks weigh anywhere from 280 down to 230 on the hoof – 230 down to 180 dressed. So I think it varies just like antlers. You can drop all those weights down 20-40 lbs post rut.
How much meat will a 100 lb deer yield?

Is Doe meat better than Buck?
Unless the meat is tainted or spoiled, it all makes good hamburger or jerky. Beware of Old Does. I’ve heard some hunters claim that “ does taste better than bucks.” That’s not inherently true. A mature doe that’s spent a summer nursing fawns is about the toughest, stringiest deer in the woods.
In an antlerless deer harvest, hunters strive to shoot does. However, hunters will mistake some antlerless or button bucks for does. Fining and/or embarrassing hunters when they shoot button bucks will keep hunters from harvesting the number of unantlered deer they need to take to keep the deer herd healthy and viable.
