Good point - talked to the hunter a few seconds ago. Seems as though the arrow shaft didn't go through the bird - the blade(s) sliced the turkey in the neck. We were actually a little surprised at the lack of blood on the broadhead and arrow too. Garret (the hunter) found the arrow about 20 yards behind the bird stuck in the dirt. The blood that was on the blade was cleaned off when the arrow slammed into the ground.
Great neck shot on a moving bird. I just took my first game with a bow (first turkey ever) with a 100gr G5 Striker. The shot was at 33 yards and I didn't feel confident with a neck shot. It did hit EXACTLY where I aimed in the vitals. It went through and broke the right wing, through the ribs, both lungs, and out the top of left leg and shattered a chunk out of a rock behind the bird!
The STRIKERS are tough and accurate broadheads. I like the fact that the blades are replaceable, because I cracked two of them on the rock behind the turkey. The center of the broadhead is still in great shape!
