Turkey Broadheads???
I was planning on just using my whitetail setup...

Thinkin about it know I'll probably blow right through a bird, and all the videos I watch shows the arrow barely going through the bird...

Should I look at Turkey specific broadheads or stick with what I know works???

Trythe NAP Gobblergetters! They have a blunt tip to stay in the bird. Pass thrus do happen occasionally but not to often.

Give the Gobbler Getters a try! I used them for the first time last year and they performed exactly like what you are looking for. I shot a bird at 10 yards and the arrow was laying on the ground just 5 yards behind the bird.

I shot a turkey with my deer hunting arrows about 8 years ago and lost both

Anyone know of a 85 grain turkey head???

I'm not a mechanical head fan but from what I read you need to punch a big hole and its even better if the arrow stays in them...

I just got some Turkey Terror broadheads to try out...

My pro shop wants me to test them this spring...

Anyone know much about them???

I'm still leaning towards the 85 grain NAP spitfire mechanicals personally...

Ever look at the Guillotine heads?

Shot the Turkey terrors at the Rinehart over the weekend....

Background info..

I shoot 85 gr field tips

Turkey Terror are 100 gr..

They still hit at least 3 inches high and to the left at 20 yards every time...

Will look at the NAP heads next...

I tred the Classic Muzzy 100 grs. last year an had an complete pass thur. Thought about adding an grasshopper behind them to prevent pass-thoughs but not a big fan of tat idea.

Going to try afew other broadheads also before the season gets going here, like the NAP Spitfire's 100 grain, Rage Three blades, and Muzzy MX-3's and 4's 100 grain.

Our season here is an late opener on the 27th of the month but the first few weeks of the season are looking good as we haven't had that much nice weather. Just had about 6"+ of snow over the last few days. The turkeys haven't been moving much lately either and they haven't been doing much breeding as of yet. Compared to other years where they have been done for an week or more.

Have line on afew good birds just have to get them within range, before closing the deal.

Guillotine's can make a mess of your trophy and in some states you have to check in an INTACT bird and that won't happen when that broad head lops off his head. Plus too much tweaking of the arrow shaft and such.

I'll stick with Magnus fixed blades.

I've hsed about every head posible in the past years , The 100gr Muzzy 3 Blade did pass threw for me also @ 30 yds , The Rage 2 Blade work awsome , But ya'll may laugh this is what works best for me and they are wicked and drop them in there tracks , The G5 small game head , the S.G.H. Heads
