    ps: already have meat in freezer took a doe, now in search for a buck or not... hope everyone else is having good luck and being safe...
    I don't care who you are, but when your in the woods and it turns pitch black, your mind can really play tricks on you expecially when you don't know the woods. :001_07:

    The turkey vitals are very small. Dont try to aim for the head as a turkey's head never stays still. The link is to a pretty good representation on where to aim with a bow.

    I agree with above, BUT I would also add, I would recommend one of the larger Turkey type broadheads out there to be used to help increase the kill odds, several brands out there these days that make turkey heads

    I agree as well, definitely a lot small target to hit especially if your shooting at the head. But keep on shootin'. 3rd times a charm...

    Nothing like waiting till almost the last min, but after 4 misses with the bow and almost giving up.... I finally got a turkey on Thanksgiving day around 2:00pm...had to use 12 gauge though...It sure will taste good deep fried around Christmas time...Thanks for your help guys!!!
