    So far this discussion pretty much tells the reason why, unless I have a Texas Bulleye, I'm always going for a head shot.
    People don't realize how small the vitals are on a turkey and that they're also obstructed from perfect view by a ton of feathers.
    Also, people don't realize the vitals are just about the same size as the head and neck area on a turkey is.
    I remember when I first started bowhunting turkeys years ago, the number of times I had to track birds which went two to three hundred yards before they died. Not because it was a bad shot, just not perfect, out maybe an inch, again because you really can't see the vitals on a turkey.
    You hit a turkey in the head and they drop like a stone. Also you either hit or miss. So yeah, pretty much always a head shot for me.

    We use these with the 2A shot placement, takes the head right off. Use a hanging pillow as a back stop to tune, different impact point then our broadheads. I'm always amazed how accurate they are.

    That would be a breast shot. Which is similar to a brisket shot on a deer. Not lethal at all. It's a common mistake hunters make and one I've made myself. Luckily the Tom survived.
