    well as spring turkey season approaches, and i get more exited that i get to go out again and try to arrow something with my bow. im thinkin most of the springtime hunters will be toatin around a scatter gun, well not me im out to arrow a gobbler this spring. i was wondering whats yuor guys set up for turkey this year? i gonna use a B52, 2 blade broadhead with a gamegetter in the back. no shots over 25 yards. i got a 3D bowhunt comming up next sat and sun, hopefully they be alot of turkey targets. cant wait to take the SSS bath and douse my self with the SSS oil and go out callin! im tryin something different this year with no decoys. just my portable ground blind.

    My favorite broadhead was the Vortex 125gr. 2.75" cutting surface, 2-blade mechanical.

    Anything that shoots as straight as possible, cause those turks are hard to hit! :eek:

    I use the Hammerhead by Rocket. Three blades 2" expandable. The person that I've seen kill the most turkeys with a bow on TV is Jay Gregory on Wild Outdoors. I'm pretty sure thats what he uses or at least used to and he's drilled a truckload of gobblers.

    Dang Chuck...unless they dropped the price on those things I'd have a real hard time sacrificing one!!

    I don't use any different broadheads for turkey than I do for deer. I'm of the belief that just like deer hunting it's all about shot placement. If I knew I was going to hit where I wanted to I think any broadhead on the market will do the trick.

    no the price is pretty steep on em but I'd rather shoot one to make sure its hits where its supposed to then be way off at the moment of truth.
