Thread: Turkey Hunting

    Default Turkey Hunting

    Hi All,

    I'll start by saying I am a rookie when it comes to bow hunting. I have only hunted two seasons with a bow, but I was successful in harvesting a three point mule deer my second year at 42 yards. However, I do have the archery bug and drew a local turkey tag this year and want to harvest a turkey with by bow, but I am unsure as to how to attempt this.

    I guess my question is... can I use my Muzzy broadheads or shoud I use the guillotines as I have seen advertised??? I have also heard that a "pass through shot is not has good as leaving the arrow buried within the turkey? So should I back of the poundage of my bow??? Please offer any advise you might have to successfully harvest a turkey with a bow.

    Thank you in advance for any advice.

    Have a good blind thats easy to set up and take down.

    Muzzy will work well. Just hit those bones and make a good shot.

    Nothing wrong with pass through. I shoot a four blade Slick trick.

    I suggest the bigger the head the better.

    Head shots never were my cup of tea.
    Elite bows, Vortex Binos, Trophy Taker sights, Carter releases, Goldtip Arrows. CBE sights, Vapor Trail Strings, B Stinger stabilizers

    Default Guillotines not for me

    Don't waste your money on guillotines. They're flimsy, so you can't practice with them. You need a special (longer) arrow. I can't think of any good thing about them.
