Re: turkey crossbow broadhead.

I am using American Broadhead Company Turkey Tearrors. Shot two birds with them last year. Shot placement is paramount on turkeys.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: turkey crossbow broadhead.

I'll probably use the G5 Striker again this season. I can't say how they work on turkeys though.

Awsome Gene!! Did you have to sight these in different than the other regular head you were using in this crossbow? I may try them if they shoot about the same as my WASP Boss SST 100`s. Shooting them out of my Excal Exocett 200.

Re: turkey crossbow broadhead.

any broadhead will kill a turkey if you hit them where you're suppose to. use the same set up you use for deer.

These were the first broadhead I sighted in the TenPoint with so I cannot say how they grouped compared to others.

Re: turkey crossbow broadhead.

Whatever is flying accurately out of your xbow currently is what I would stick with. I took this gobbler at about 25-30yds with a 100gr Slick Trick out of my Equinox.
