Well done! Crazy how big those critters get. Of the 1800 lbs, how much meat do you think you will get off of him?

Good decision, well done!
One less buff to move inland and tromp up the duck clubs!

Edit: Here is a pic of one of three buffs that walked on to the duck club this september.
You can see Antelope Island in the background.

Didn't realize they were leaving the island, but with the lake as low as it is I can see why. There are still 700 head plus on the island I think so taking out 10 bulls this year probably not going to help that issue much.Unsure

Been studying this sort of data for a while now, both for the grass-fed beef we raised and game such as elk and deer. I found this on the internet. I edited it for conciseness. For an 1800 pound bull you can multiply the weights by a factor of 1.8.

Expected Meat Yield from a Bison Bull Carcass
By Gerald Hauer, Bison Production Specialist
We often get asked at the Bison Centre for information on how much meat one
can expect from a bison carcass. How much of each cut? How much is bone?
I have compiled a table of the expected meat yield from a bison bull. This
information is taken from research projects conducted at the Ag Canada
Lacombe Research Centre. The numbers will vary with the amount of finish on
the bison, the age of bull, and with the way that the carcass is cut up. Every
butcher or processor has his own way of cutting and wrapping so these numbers
are only a guideline.
Expected Yield from a Bison Bull Carcass
Live Weight 1000 lb. bison
% yield 56
carcass weight 560 lbs.
____________________________________________________________
All cuts (except the ribs) are deboned.
weight in lbs.
waste fat 31.4
waste bone 105.8
strip-loin steak 21.3
tenderloin steak 9.0
prime rib steak or roast 23.5
top butt steak or roast 18.5
strip-loin tip roast 21.8
inside round roast 36.4
outside round roast 22.4
eye of round roast 9.5
chuck/cross rib roast (boneless) 64.4
trim burger/sausage 160.7
stew meat 20.2
ribs 14.6
Total 559.4

I actually cut my own meat up but will have the burger gound by a butcher shop.

Gracias. Does your data for other species come to similar numbers? Roughly 56 percent meat yield

No wonder you gave some to friends. Butchering and freezing 1000 lbs of meat sounds like a big task

That looks like a great time.

Congratulations on a fine animal.

That is pretty typical for wild game. Beef is a little higher. But remember that is pure meat. The takeaway is that you could get more pounds if you keep the bones and fat in ( plus hide, hair, hooves, entrails, etc. Shocked).
