    Top notch game shears?

    I prefer cleaning small birds up to duck size with shears. But I've never used good shears. Some I've tried have been okay (when freshly sharp, which didn't last long), but none have been memorable. Anyone have recommendations or ruminations on good game shears to try? Thanks!

    I like the Gerber game shears a lot for ducks, geese and pheasant. They work with quail and dove but I prefer kitchen shears for the small ones. Being able to take them apart for cleaning is a good thing.

    I'll give the Gerber a hard look. I've also heard a decent pair of tin snips is very effective. Thanks to all.

    Wow I , in addition to game bag I also keep a pair 7of Gerbers in the kitchen. They'll zip the backbone out of a chicken or turkey like it was easy.
