    Guys, I do not know if this is the right forum. But my question is. When you are hunting turkeys. Are you turning down the poundage on your bows? I have noticed you are not getting pass through shots and anchoring the bifds.

      In all honesty you do not want pass throughs on turkeys. You want the energy from the arrow transferred into the bird. It is also hard for the bird to run away with an arrow in him. Not to mention those feathers are tough to get through. If you used a fixed blade you will more than likely get a pass through overtime, BUT you want to use a mechanical with the biggest cut you can find since the kill zone on a bird is rather small. Hope I answered your question.

    So you are turning down the bow? I do use a mechanical broadhead. NAP Kill zones.

    I killed my first turkey with a bow this year- I used a Wasp Jak Knife expandable broadhead – 70 pounds- 25 yard shot – no pass trough- close but not quite

    Great information.
    I’ve been getting pass threw shorts and losing a bitds
    Placement is good. They are tough birds for sure. Taking the arrows like a hog.
    Great forum ! Bow Hunt or Die

  5. You can always get the small expandables to put behind your broadhead. They just slip tight with a rubber grommet and are just like an expandable broadhead except they have no cutting blades. Essentially 2 wires that flip open and keep the broadhead from penetrating too far. When they impact the bird, they slide about 4-5 inches back. I have shot 4 birds with these, and they thump the turkey so hard I have had 2 just drop straight to the ground dead.
