My goal this season is to kill my first animal with my bow. I was thinking about just using my normal muzzy 3 blade that I use for deer hunting. Is that ok or do I need to buy a different kind? Suggestions? I shoot a Bowtech Assassin 29 inch draw with 60 lbs pull. Thanks!

Shoot what you use for deer, best broadhead is one that is well placed.

Where do I need to aim for a turkey? Center of the body or base of the neck? Im not yet good enough for a head shot!

Straight up the fan or where wing meets the body. "High watch'em die, low watch'em go"

Shoot them where the leg joins the body. Any broadhead will do the trick but the mechanicals will be better.

Turkeys aren't tough but they do have a small kill zone. Their vitals are very small. If you hit the vitals it doesn't matter what broadhead you are shooting.


This river don't go to Aintry.

I plan on using my grim reaper mechanicals. I too am worried about shot placement. I've been looking online and have seen some nice pics of where to shoot them.
