After almost 2 decades in the animal business one tenent rings true everytime without fail: There are 3 words you never,ever use-- "Always." "Definitely". And, "never"  This is because the instant you use one of those words, creation will make a liar and an idiot out of you in short order.

Exactly.


I dunno, I`m gonna go out on a limb and state that a 250 pound 1.5 year old is never gonna happen......

 
I'll second that

Anyone ever hear of a 7'3 tall eighth grader. No way you say. Check out this. I've never seen one, but it does not mean they don't exist.

They exist. No one can dispute that so why not an occasional deer that is out of proportion to the norm. We have eliminated most of the natural predators so it is highly likely that one with some sort of genetic quirk can and do exist and survive.
 
The more I think about it the more I tend think the nay sayers are just flat out not thinking this through. I think they are clinging to a narrow mindset that does not encompass the big picture outside their personal experiences. JMO.

I refuse to accept that kid is an 8th grader unless I get a good look at his jawbone!

There are probably less intrusive ways to age an 8th grader, what they might be though, I don't know.

I had cousins that were big.  One was 5 foot entering Kindergarten, but 7'3" is too much. My cousins grew up in Brecksville, Ohio. We don't have kids like that down here though. That 7-footer must have been raised on one of those special ranches-- one of them high-fence nurseries.

What do you think the yield on that boy would be?  I'd say less than 35%.  I'd not want it either-- too tough and stringy.

After I field dressed my Doe I shot this November,(Yes,we usually field dress our deers out in the woods here in Missouri) I removed the hide,lower legs and head then she weighed in at around 75 lbs.I got about 35 lbs of meat back from the Proccessor which was 21 lbs of be-boned meat mixedin with sausage that I had made into deer bologna and the remaining 14 lbs was the loins and 1 rear 1/4 cut into steaks.The Doe I shot was well over 100 lbs and 2 other Hunters on our Lease shot bigger Doe's that weighed in over 125 to 150 lbs field dressed.Over the years of hunting I've seen several large Doe's that were heavier/larger than most of the Bucks that were harvested,a lot depends on the Deers age and how well the food crop is in that area.I know of guys that have shot Bucks that weighed over 200 lbs field dressed because there was plenty of Farm Crops in that area of our County.


Oh yeah,and about 5 years ago I took a 145 lb (field dressed) Buck into one of our local Meat Proccessors and all I got back was a grocery bag and a beer flat of meat back from them....I never took another Deer to them again!

I may have taken the "Ya. Scale" "Better get a new one comment a little to heart.   I am not one to exagerate but, I tend to error on the side of modesty.  Sorry If I opened old wounds but ,  I just wanted to confirm the fact the butcher might have taken advantage of me and my food outreach program when I am paying him to get the lic. for the use of the wild meat for the food outreach.  I butcher all my deer taken in gun season but in the early bow season it is usually to warm for me to get it done soon enough. 
Thank you again to those who gave a honest opioion.
