    Broad head for turkey?

    I'm in south Florida and am going to start turkey hunting this fall and am wondering what type of broadhead do I want to use. I spend a lot of time out in the Everglades and see a fair amount of turkeys.
    Thanks Capt Don

    I have killed quite a few with the same heads I hunt deer with. Muzzy 3 blade. But, turkey's are the only game I think a large expandable would work well on.

    I use my deer broadheads. Spitfires and killzones.

    I like a big cut so anything around 1.75" or bigger. Killzones are nasty!

    I used a Muzzy MX-4 this past season, worked great. Im going back to the MX-3's or try out the Trocars this upcoming deer season. I'm a fan of Muzzy products.

    This past seasons turkey shot with a MX-4.Broad head for turkey?-photo-1-.jpgBroad head for turkey?-photo-4.jpg

    Shoot them in the head/neck with a Magnus Bullhead. Dead on contact, no meat loss, no wounded bird to run off and be lost, a larger kill zone than a body shot, and a clear and easy target. Simply the EASIEST shot in all of bow hunting to make.

    Thanks for all your help and advice. I really appreciate getting it from people that actually use the products, not from some guy behind the counter that has never been hunting.

    I'm 2 for 2 with the Montec G5's. Had one go clean through from neck to ***. He had a seizure for about 20 seconds and was done. The other logged in him and we had to do a little chasing but not much. Check out Flying Arrow Archery's Tom Bomb. Its a pretty devastating BH. I'm going to give them a try in the fall. Shot placement as with anything else is the most critical of all. "Hit me high, watch em die, hit em low, watch em go"! Vitals are a little higher in the body cavity than some people realize.

    I plan on trying these out either this fall/spring season. I have heard nothing but great things about them.
