Default Rage broadheads for turkey?

This past archery season was my first year using my compound and I shot a buck and a doe using Rage 3 blade broadheads and this upcoming spring I am going to try to take a turkey with my bow....can I use my Rage 3 blades or should I buy broadheads designed for turkey? Thanks guys

Those three blade Rage's ought to work like new money on a turkey. Make a good shot andhe won't go far; if he goes anywhere.

I zipped a fall turkey with a rage 2 blade this past year. He's in the freezer now.

The Rges are just fine for turkeys. I shot two last spring with the two blade version. Some have concerned to the large hole they leave if you want to get the bird mounted. My taxi said it is not a problem to fix the holes and i currently have one getting mounted that should be done anytime.

I plan on keeping the 3-blades in my quiver for the upcoming season.

I'd think for Turkeys it couldn't get much better!
