Animals typically lose 3 to 5 pounds in moisture loss while hanging.  Loss from cutting and shrinkage can range from 30% to 50% depending upon the condition of the animal.  

More meat can be lost depending upon where the animal was shot and how the animal was cared for prior to dropping off at Rocky Mountain Meats (RMM).  

The above numbers are an example of a well-cared for cow elk and are not meant to guarantee you a certain number of pounds or yields.  Your animal may yield more or less depending upon the type of animal and how you care for the animal after the kill.
