Is there an official generally accepted statistic of how big a deer is in velvet v.s out of velvet? So for example if you saw a deer in velvet and thought it was a 130, would you shave off a certain percentage to deduct the velvet factor?

Defenitly, you loose mass once they shed the velvet. I wouldnt know what amount, maybe on a 130 buck in velvet it may score 115-120 after rubbing. I dont know what the ratio is but with out a doubt a buck looses mass or the apearence of loosing mass when the shed. This is my opinion not a official statistic.
