    for southern deer I use 32"length(sternum to rump) for average does(100-110lbs) and 36" for average buck(150-175lbs). I measured 8-10 does and 4-5 bucks to get these numbers. My mil-dot ranging chart is based on these numbers(incidentaly, these numbers are exactly double the brisket to back measurments so it is easy to divide the yardage in half if i have to use the body depth to range instead of body length.
