i have two 2 blade rages left, that i was going to use for turkey. but i don't want the turkey to fly away when i shoot it, so i was thining about trying the magnus bull heads. i know that your supposed to hit them in the wing with the bullhead, but what will happen if you hit'em in the thigh or lower breasts?

hmm

I thought I saw in a video that you can take body shots with the 100grain bullhead.

The 100grain can be shot anywhere. You still have to hit a turkey in the right spot to kill it though. Try not to rush your shot. I have been guilty of this in the past and missed many birds. The owner of Magnus said that they even got some pass throughs with the 100gr on some of the 12 birds he took during the testing phase.

ive shot two turkeys with the rage 2 blades,both right near 20 yards,one alittle low of the base of the fan facing away,the other center mass broadside right above the drums,the fan shot bird barely twitched the other flopped like afish out of water.no problems with fly aways.

Did you get pass thru's with the two birds you harvested? I am thinking about using the Rage 2 blade for turkeys. Tonight I put an adder point behind the 2 Blade Rage. Looks like a good combination for turkeys. What are your thoughts?

i was think the same, but i think the blade would hit the adder point when the open. i'm adding a washer behind my tricks, but not the rage

I put the adder point on and opened the Rage. It appears to open just fine. It sure looks nasty. Assuming the blades open fine do you think I would still have plenty of penetration with the adder and 2 inches of cutting. I am shooting around 275 fps at 100 grains. With the adder I will lose a few feet due to adding 25 grains. So what do you think?

You'll be fine. I'm doing the same thing w/ maybe just a little more speed.

that sounds deadly! by the way you don't want alot of penetration.

Pass Through?

I have talked to a veteran turkey hunter that has shot MANY turkeys with a bow,he told me he only gets a pass through about 1 out of ten shots, the 2 I have killed neither was a pass through, the feathers stop an arrow alot faster than deer hide, the two I shot, one was a G5 Montec the other Rocket 3 blade Steelhead, I wouldnt reccomend anything on an arrow to stop it .

Thanks for your thoughts! I have heard so many comments about tyring to keep the arrow in the bird. Maybe I am over thinking this. Planning on using the 2 Blade Rage this year. The adder point scares me a little. I am leaning towards just shooting the Rage and after I see what it does then I will make the call on the adder point.

You won't need the adder point...a Rage will tear up a turkey whether it passes through or not.:thumbs_up
