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.

Thanks, will do seperate scales for turkey and deer. Anybody have input on a good set of deer scales?

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.
