Curious as to your input on a good set of scales that would be versatile to weigh both deer and turkeys with, thanks.

That all depends on whether you are hunting really big turkeys or very small deer............................

Most scales for deer don't even start until @ 50lbs or more. You can buy a good fish scale that would cover most turkeys, they are small and very packable.

I don't yet have a deer scale but I do have a Berkley digital scale that is perfect for birds as well as fish. Since I butcher my own deer I might buy one of those spring scales for deer before next deer season. I don't know of any scales that will work for both deer and turkeys.

I have had this set of scales for over 20 yrs now, accurate and simple.

PS: I would not recommend leaving your deer hang from the scale for long periods of time, it could have a negative effect on the accuracy of the scales over time.
