Default Shot Placement

I'm taking my bow turkey hunting this year, if I get drawn for a license. Where is the best place to shoot a turkey with a bow? Are there any online diagrams for shot placement?

Default RE: Shot Placement

Jeff, I'm not sure whether or not there are any online references to shot placement but if you have an opportunity to look at a McKenzie full strut or jake target, it give's great placement.

The best opportunity for a bowhunter is to have the gobbler come in full strut....if this is the case you have four opp's for targets. If he faces away, full fan, aim for wear the feathers come together at the arse end...from either side, at the wing butt and frontal, at the top of the beard...

When not in strut, obviously at the wing butt on each side and again, the beard makes for an obvious aim point straight away.
