    Default Wild Turkey : shot placement

    A thread like this was posted for Deer and it generated a good discussion, so let's try it for Wild Turkey with a Bow.

    This is primarily for Archery...as the recommend shot placement for shotgun is pretty much limited .

    I think between 3B & 3C would be the ticket

    I just bought a crossbow last summer and have never shot a turkey, presented the chance I think I'd choose A2.

    That's (A2) the shot I found best with the x-bow.

    I was trying to hit the neck/head one night (about 20 yrds out) but cleanly missed on my first two shots. He must have hard me reloading and turned to face me in the pop-up. So with the 3rd shot, I lowered the POA to the base of the neck (A2) and that was the ticket.

    I hit a Tom one year in about area 3C....the arrow stuck in the thick part of the thigh and he flew away with my arrow. I watched him land and enter the woods. So I went home got my hound and put him of the trail. He found the Tom hiding under a fallen tree. Recovered both.

    Thanks for that. I was going to ask but didn't want to derail the thread. I only have bolt cutters right .now

    I figured it would be the best shot for a clean kill with minimal meat damage and a little forgiveness in any direction. Glad you were able to recover them.

    not a bow hunter but wouldn't you want to include a going away option too?

    I always thought the magic archery spot was directly behind where the beard attached to the chest, so my pick would be B, on the line between 3/4.
