Wally World has 3 packs on clearance for $11. I thought about trying them for turkeys. 100gr. What do you think?

They would be great for turkeys. The one doe I shot with them was a very difficult recovery because of a lack of penetration. I quit using them on deer.

Buy them all!! These are great broadheads and very durable. I shoot rocket Steelhead 100's and they normally go for $24-$27 a 3 pack. I have killed many deer with them and have never experienced any penetration problems. If you see any of the Rocket Ultimate Steel or Ultimate Titanium 100's they are great too. Very accurate/durable/sharp and they are fixed blades.

i smoked two does with them after few years back. I typically shoot rocket sidewinders but couldn't find any mid season. Bought the steelheads instead and they did the job with nice blood trails each time. Rocket makes one broadhead with 2.5 inch cutting diameter. That is what I use for turkey

Hey Greg....I shot my spring gobbler with that head. HUGE HOLE in a turkey.

I wouldn't be afraid to use it on a deer, either. I let one of Buckmaster_101's buddies borrow some (I have replacement blades) and he took a doe with them. Didn't ask how the hole/recovery was, though.

I'd be ALL OVER them for that price. I likely have a dozen lying around, somewhere......waiting for turkey season!

You, too, could be this good......BUT, you really need to be in the woods to test them out, which of course leaves you in the dark......Then again, you may just be in the dark anyway....
