    Try a large cutting diameter broadhead or an expandable head.

      I use the same, I know where they will hit. Plus, the fall turkey season coincides with the deer season. I usually kill my turkey bow kills from a deer stand while deer hunting.

        I use the same rage 2 blade expandables for deer and turkey. The only reason I would consider using a different broadhead is if I were aiming for the head just like a shotgun as well which I do not because
        A)it is hard enough to shoot a turkey with a shotgun let alone with a bow
        B)game killed with a bow is still edible at the wound

          Have shot turkey with expandable, fixed blade and cut-on-contact heads. Most of the turkey died of their wounds.
          For unknown reasons, a couple shot with expandable heads got away.
