Abstract

Relationships of body weight and chest girth were evaluated among age-sex groups, seasons, sites, and years in 384 white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) from Tennessee. Predictions of body weight (kg) from a chest-girth measurement (mm) varied among age-sex groups, seasons (fall and winter), and sites.
