The Best Turkey Broadhead?
Turkey season is coming. Now is a great time to consider about what broadhead you are going to use on Mr. Tom. There are many options on the market, but few options compare to a Grim Reaper Broadhead.
One broadhead that has sent many turkeys to the turkey fryer is the Pro Series Whitetail Special from Grim Reaper Broadheads. The name implies that this head is designed for deer, but it is just as devastating when it hits the side of a longbeard. The Razortip will quickly cut through any turkey and bring them down quickly.
One reason many people like using the Whitetail Special when turkey hunting is because it offers a cutting diameter of two inches. The Whitetail Special has three blades so when you combine three blades with a large cutting diameter, the result is typically a notched tag.
One of the greatest advantages of a broadhead with a large cutting diameter is the fact that there is a little room for error. The chest cavity on a turkey is about the size of softball. With a typical broadhead, if you hit a little low or a little high, you can easily wound the bird. Wounded turkeys are notorious for being like Houdini…they disappear. With a broadhead like the Whitetail Special even if your shot is off a little, the odds of success are high.
I have read many articles over the years about where the proper place to aim is when bowhunting turkeys. Some writers say the head; others say at the base of the wing. I like aiming slightly above the drumsticks where the legs attach to the body. Because the Whitetail Special has such a large cutting diameter, when I aim slightly above the legs, the broadhead takes out the chest cavity and the muscles in the legs, which means the bird can’t fly or run. Some bowhunters lose their turkey after the shot because the bird runs off or flies away, and hides, and then dies. By taking out the legs, the recovery is typically short.
Are you planning to bowhunt turkeys this spring? Aim right above the legs and use a Grim Reaper Whitetail Special. You will be glad you did.
