Hunting turkeys

Have many of you hunted turkeys with your xbow. I'm looking forward to trying it next year.

Re: Hunting turkeys

Started hunting them exclusively with the crossbow last year. This is my spring Tom this year.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Hunting turkeys

I've hunted plenty.

Not many turkeys in my area of the state. You won't likely see any harvest photos from me anytime soon. I need a new place to hunt turkeys! Good luck to you. I hope you have better luck than me.

Re: Hunting turkeys

Like Arrowhead, I have hunted them, but have yet to connect on one.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

Gene, how close did the turkey terrors shoot to the point of impact as opposed to the regular deer broadheads you sighted in with? Or did you have to re-sight in for the turkey terrors? I may try those on turks. Thanks.

Re: Hunting turkeys

I had a new bow to play with so I sighted in with field points then switched to the tearrors and they were hitting right next to the field points. When turkey was over I went to a new arrow and much heavier broad head for deer so I cannot tell you how close they shot to a same weight broadhead.

Doesn't help you much, Jack, but I really like these broad heads for turkeys.
