How Much Does a Deer Weigh on Average?

The weight of white-tailed deer varies depending on their gender, with the males, known as stags or bucks, weighing an average of 150 to 300 pounds. White-tailed deer females, sometimes known as cows or does, can weigh anywhere between 90 and 200 pounds.

Fawns or calves are the names for young deer, which weigh between 4 and 8 pounds at birth. Because fawns lose their markings by the time they are 4 months old, it is usually possible to predict a fawn’s age from its spots.

A fawn gains an enormous amount of weight by the time it is weaned. The male fawn will weigh between 80 and 85 pounds at barely 4 months, and the female between 75 and 80 pounds.
