Depends how picky one is ,if I take a arrowed deer to the locker ,I get only ground deer back no adding anything to it so my largest on an Iowa X-large doe (180+ lbs live weigh guess ) was 68 lbs .I usually think more like 40+ lbs on a full grow doe is more inline.The lockers around here seem to do a good job ( BETTER THAN MYSELF ) . There's alot of fat on the full grown does and this fat is not good for jerky
,so I tank it when I cut up deer myself ,seems to work if I can grind it alright ,but I own a small low cost grinder ,maybe a large one it would work better but too much deer fat is not good for jerky as it causes it to taste rank !
If I get screwed by a locker ,and yes that's happened to me ,I take my deer elsewhere next time .
