Turkey Vitals Diagram

I get a lot of questions about where to shoot a turkey with a bow. I prefer to take a shot of a broadside bird and aim right above the legs in the center of the wing. With a perfect shot you will take out both of the turkey’s legs and drop the bird in its tracks.
Here is where I like to place the shot:

Like deer hunting, it is important to wait for the perfect shot with a turkey. This is especially true since the target is so small. A smaller target decreases your odds of a deadly hit, so wait for the bird to turn broadside and squeeze off that trigger. Once you let that arrow fly you can go get your longbeard!
