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

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.
