I have been hitting the deer woods hard but seeing few deer or any rut action at all. Thursday afternoon I could some birds talking across the valley from my stand. I always carry a call with me when turkey is open so I let out a few kee kees and yelps. The group answered me back once than they went silent. They were a long was off so I figured that was the end of that.

About an hour later I caught three red heads below me. Three longbeards fed past but about 20 yards too far away. Shortly thereafter, a black shape caught me eye as a hen popped up on a log at 30 yards staring my way. I did my best to blend into the tree. She settled down, hopped off the log, and started feeding. The other seven joined her and I waiting till the stepped into one of my shooting lanes at 24 yards.

I held for the wing butt and the arrow flew true to its mark. She never took another step. She had a 5 inch beard. Taken in 2A, Washington County.

Congrats! What kind of damage does that broadhead do to meat?
If you hit them in the vitals, very little. The breast sits low on a turkey. I aim for the wind butt. A hit there will break one or both wings and punch through the vitals, sparing most, if not all of the breast meat.
