At the Ranch – Turkey: Pros and Cons of Archery Body Shots

May 17, 2021

There are a few pros and cons of aiming for the body when archery hunting for turkeys. When it comes to shooting for the body, you want to use a big and devastating broadhead. Their kill zone is much smaller than you think when aiming for the body. You want to aim for the wing butt, right where it connects to the body. Though they’ve got a small area for vitals, it’s still going to be bigger than if you’re going for a headshot and the body isn’t constantly moving as quick as the head. When it comes to body shots, you’re able to shoot at multiple angles. The bird can be facing you, broadside or even facing dead away from you.
