    Hi, me again, can anyone answer the question in inches (feet, yards, meters) for a doe and a buck (on average of course)?

    I'm wanting to know because I use a mil-dot scope and would like to know for ranging purposes.

    Thanks,
    P.B.Walsh

    62 to 87 inches long, but the height at the shoulder is more important for trajectory. Most run about 32" to 40" at the shoulder. 36" is average.

    How would the shoulder be better, I could always use both, I just figured that the body would be better to see.
