Interesting, I have the same heads but haven't had a connection with a bird yet. Did the arrow just bounce off? Was there any blood at all?



It bounced and twisted off with a bunch of feathers. I watched the bird go back to the group and just kept looking back in my direction. He stilled gobbled a few times. No blood, looked fine. Never been so mad at a broadhead. A buddy was right behind me and watched it all. He was dumb-founded as well. I shot him straight on.

Perfect! Thanks for the review RC. It "looked" good on the internet, but we all know how far that goes now a days.

Hey boys, this year for turkeys I'm going to use my bow....and was thinking about going the mechanical broad head route. This may sound bad but since it's "a bird" I kind of trust the mechanicals a little more then what I will be shooting at elk. I basically want it for simplicity. I want to be able to practice with my field tips up until the hunt, screw on the mechanical and hopefully not have too much different point of impact to tune before going right back into summer practicing with field tips.

Just wondering if anybody has had any success with a certain type of mechanical head. Thinking the G5 T3 or bloodrunner......PS I won't consider a Rage lol.

Thanks guys.

Shot three turkeys with rage three blades and they never got out of my sight.

I used Rage my first year bowhunting as they were brand new. First animal I shot with it was quartering away (antelope). Put the arrow perfect and the broad head didn't make it through the stomach. Had to put another stalk on it and finish him off at 12 yards. Still got him but was very fortunate, and to that day I vowed to never use a Rage Broadhead again.

Trent I shot a gobbler in TX last year with my bow, and I was using the old rocket hammerdeads 4 blade expandables that I took and blunted the tip on similar to the NAP gobbler getters. It worked exactly like I would want a turkey broadhead to! I only went in about 6-8 inches and left a massive wound channel. The key to shooting turkeys with a bow is to keep the arrow in them to prevent flying/running off. If you don't have older mechanicals to use like I did, I would strongly recommend the NAP GG's, as I think they would work as planned and I know the spitfires shoot just like field tips. Hope this helps!

thanks deuce. I'm leaning that direction. I love the thought of the blunt style for killing birds. I shoot grouse with a home made blunt tip all the time and it does some serious damage.

Hey Trent I got some arrows with broad heads on I could let you shoot another one into a steel post again and you would have a blunt tip broadhead. laugh.gif

I still laugh that I ended up killing a pronghorn with that arrow lol
