Where do you shoot a turkey with a bow
 
Hey was just wondering Where do you shoot a turkey with a bow?

Bow shot
 
Head on shoot at the base of the beard, away shoot base of fan strutting and broad side shoot where wing attaches to the body

broadside, hold on the butt of the wing, thats a lung shot.

What are you talking about the name of the location or just the place to hunt a turkey?

The saying to remember is “ shoot them high and watch them die, shoot them low and watch them go.”

I shot my very first turkey with a bow while deer hunting. I shot it high on the wing. It broke a wing as it was going threw it. The strange thing about it was there was this little stump that I never saw behind it. Yes it was stuck with my arrow and the stump. That one never went anywhere. But if one is in strut I wouldn’t hesitate to take it in the fan either..

Do yourself favour and get a head chopper like a bullhead. Then just take their head off end of story. No chasing them all over like with a body shot. ;)

Use the expanding arrowheads - flat tips with a pointed tip. Expanding tips go right through, leaving considerable holes. This is important, since turkeys have few weaknesses
