Nice looking bird. I have hunted turkeys for 3 years and havent taken one home yet. The last day of the fall season this year I stuck two at the same time with my bow and the first one that was hit ran off and the 2nd one flew off( with my arrow sticking out of both sides). They both were vital shots but not fast enough for them to die before they disapeared in our dense woods. Talk about frustrating!!!!!! So its redemption time for me this spring.

as a matter of fact I was using a deer broadhead. How do you sight in the gillitine arrows? wouldnt they break off the blades shooting a broadhead target?

Guillotines arent necessary. You run a high risk of breaking blades if you shot at a foam target. They fly pretty similar to my slick tricks or field points.

I use slick tricks for turkey. Ive had a few pass throughs. one bird i never found after it flew off after taking one straight through the body at about 10 yards.

May try a magnus bullhead this year... Turkeys with a bow is very difficult, especially cause i rarely use my blind. :lol3:

I like using a lot of shotgun so it's not a foot race.

Nice looking birds! Are you having to shoot those birds close up using the 28 gauge?
