 I was gonna take my bow this year and was curious if anybody goes for a headshot with a non magnus bullhead style broadhead. I’ve seen a lot birds lost with body shots and figured it’s a kill or a miss with a head shot. What would be the best broadhead for a head shot besides a bullhead etc.
Thanks

That would be an extremely tough shot imo. I use a rage hypodermic but I shoot them where the wing joins the body.

No..... I use 4 blade mechanicals in the body. They go about 20 after the shot.

Although I just use my normal size 3 blade broadheads for a vital shot, I would highly recommend the bulkhead or similar width broadhead for a shot at a constantly moving Turkey head shot.

The head is a bigger target than most people think.  about 3"   vitals in the body are not much bigger. I have considered this shot,  but have not tried it. Most the time the head is moving around a lot . If the bird is in full strut then that head does not move as much and you might have a better chance.. I think if you want to head shoot them then the bull heads are the way to go. personally I  haven't had that much luck with the bull head.Failed to recover two birds with them. I switched back to gobbler getters.  This year I doing better this year I recovered 3 of the 4 birds shot so far. I love bow hunting turkeys,But in the beginning I think I would rush the shot and take longer shots. After losing some turkeys and getting sick about it.I went back to gun hunting.  This year giving bow hunting another run but I am trying not to shot unless I get them in at 15 yards or closer. I killed a lot of gobblers with a bow, But I have still not taken a long beard in my home state of NY with a bow.  I hope that this will be the Year season opens Saturday.

When I still turkey hunted with a bow I usually shot head or neck. The last 1 I killed with my bow was a neck shot with a rage 2 blade.
