How much meat in weight should I be getting from a deer that dressed out at 140 lbs?

About 40% is what I think I have read somewhere. So somewhere around 56 lbs I would think. How much did you get back?

Yep I've always heard between 30 and 40%.

I got about 44 lbs of ground meat and I didn't weigh the tenderloins and back straps but I got all of it ground except the tenderloins and back straps.

44 is pretty good. Especially without the backstraps.

Depending on where you shot the deer. A hard shoulder hit can blow out on or both front shoulders and can cost you 5-7 lbs of meat. A whole neck roast - vs - one that has been deboned can be 1-2 lbs difference. How much time they spend pealing flank steaks off the ribs can be 2-3 lbs difference also.

Don't know where it was shot, someone took it to the processor and all they wanted was the trophy.
