When deciding what size turkey to buy, figure 1 to 1 1/2 pounds per person, depending on whether you are big eaters and how much you want left over. In my house, we have a mixed crowd when it comes to appetite, but no shortage of takers for leftovers, so I generally figure on 1 1/2 pounds per person.
