    OK, I still use aluminum arrows, and haven't switched over to carbon. My arrow length is 35 inches. The first turkey I took with a bow had to be back some 15 years ago. I was hunting out of a tree stand that was about 14 ft in the air.. I had this Tom come in at 15 or so yds and pinned him to the root of an oak tree. He couldn't move. B2 - B3...

    I've killed a few with a crossbow (and compound) and my favorite (and lethal) shot is the "Texas heart shot". But in this scenario 3 C would be a very effective shot. If you're talking the "best" for me would be the intersection of the line between 2 and 3 and B and C. I've hit them there and they don't go anywhere. If you're thinking of the Magnus just make sure it clears your stirrup. TC

    Good point, maybe a longer arrow?

    I would put the pin on 3B and let it fly. Every turkey I've shot there didn't go out of sight before they dropped.

    Iíve only taken two toms using crossbow. First was a 3 B-C bolt went down on far side of bird breast damaged
    Second was from behind mid back. Bird just flopped over dead bolt stuck halve way in the ground 10 yd infront of bird feathers flew for 10 yds no meat damage
    Think Iíll wait for them to turn for back shot

    Bolt cutters all I have ever used
