Does any one decrease the draw weight poundage of their bow for turkey hunting?
Do you have a bow set up dedicated to turkey hunting/smaller game only?
What broad head recommendations do you have for turkey hunting other than the guilloutine?
Any info would be helpful.
well this will be my 3rd year 1st that i plan on using my bow..
My game plan is to use the same set up I do on elk / deer. i see no reason to turn down set up thats shooting sweet... I may also take the recurve for a hunt or 3.. going to depend on ..
1 If I can shoot it out of my blind ( un know @ date)
2 If i can shoot it while seated with out to much movement...
If it has been a while and your bow ita tad to heavy on weight then buy all means turn it down so you can draw easy with out jurking it back
good luck to you Just remember to "Hit um High see um Die - Hit um Low see um GO"
The only change I make is the broadhead, been using Rocket Hammerheads which have a 2" cut because of the small vitals. I've had great results with them so for; don't care for the "decapitating" broadheads, mostly for cleaner pictures.
I use same setup that i deer hunt with,ill use a mechanical for sure,rage,grim reaper.Also keep the poundage the same 60#.
Elkslayer...I felt the same way w/ my set up. Don't have any problem handling the draw now but the local expert recommended going light to prevent a pass through. He said an arrow in the vitals causes more damage, quicker than a pass through on an escaping bird??? I don't think I agree, I'm having a tough time figuring how to measure effect.
CaptJJ...thanks for the broadhead info. Thats' the size cut I was looking for. Its' a little bigger than what I use for deer. I'll get some to run some shooting sessions b4 I hunt.
no can do...only mechanical i can use would be on a grey squirrel.
we can use mechamical on squirrel?i was thinking that we could not
