    With the magnus bullheads from a compound is speed or weight better when choosing an arrow? I shoot 60lbs at 26 inch draw.

    Default Bow hunting turkey

    We switched over to exclusively bow hunting about 7-8 years ago looking for increased challenge, as stated above. Using both compound and xbow. even ditched the blinds and shot a few with compounds that way. But we never got into the head-shot broadheads and after a number of mixed experiences on body shots over several years, we were eventually frustrated enough to switch back to guns. Our recovery rate wound up being 50%, obviously not good enough to carry on.

    re: broadhead choice. I shot 4 turkeys with wasp jackhammer 125ís. 3 from a 200lb xcal and one from a compound. Recovered 2/4. No discernible difference from my end in terms of poi on the turkeys. All four appeared good in the moment.

    a lot of people wouldnít admit that but this is supposed to be a place to come for helpful, practical advice, so there you go for what itís worth...

    Maybe some others might know better, but I think you'd rather more speed and less weight since you aren't looking for penetration but accuracy with head shots and a faster lighter arrow will shoot flatter farther.
