The "head on" shot..

My one and only attept at this shot happened two seasons ago...

Opening day, I called a jake, three hens, and a longbeard in all together. It was kinda crazy for a minute or so.

Then the gobbler stood, about 8yds away, stone still as the other birds looked to be about to leave.

I knew if I made a good shot and hit dead center, between the beard and bottom of his waddles, it would be "game over".

Not a shot I'd usually take, but with him so close, and standing so still I drew and shot...

Arrow hit a touch higher than I was looking, but dead center...he went nowhere. Just flopped 3-4yds as he was dying...

The big Snuffer almost completely severed his neck...
 -


Because the neck was in an S-shape in strutt, the arrow came out the back of his neck skin in the fold and re-entered continuing along his neck, into his body...

Where it continued into his body along his neck...

This shot worked out this time. But to be honest, I'm not sure I'd recommend it or try it again myself.

If you hit dead center and the right height, you're OK. But because of the way turkeys are put together, their bone structure is kinda like a wedge from the front.

An off-center hit has a real good chance of not entering the vitals.

Just my take on this one...

Last but not least, my gobbler with Cade last spring. I hunt that means more to me every day that passes...

This gobbler came in from the side and was circling Floyd when the arrow took him, quartering away, about 15yds.. Arrow entered just in front of the near thigh, and exited just under the opposite wing butt...
 -

The arrow dissappeared on impact, and the gobbler tumbled, rolled, flapped for about 20yds and it was over...
 -

You can see in this pic that the arrow must have hung up just before exiting and he dragged it with him for a while...

Entrance...

Exit...

The bloodtrail was short, but sweet...

Cade pointing out the entrance again...
