Turkey hunting setups.......

I purchased a BM 32/50 lbs max as my turkey hunting bow/late season whitetail hunting bow and it will be here within 10-14 days.I plan on setting it up with a 5 pin spot hogg,limbdriver pro-v and a 6 or 8" doinker stabilizer.As my whitetail season is over Dec 31st.I am shifting my attention to spring turkey hunting and getting a new bow setup for just that this winter.I am not sure whether i want to shoot my 125 gr bullheads or 125 gr chinadermics yet.How many have a setup for turkey hunting?I wanted another short ata and when i seen this 50 lber for sale.I knew i needed it, as i had a 60 lber before and it was an awesome hunting bow...Grizz

I plan on adding a bomar stop to this rig,I may even purchase another mbg 3 or 5 pin slider sight instead of the 5 pin hogg sight.I think I may setup one sight to shoot the bullheads and the other regular broadheads...so i can just change them back and forth during turkey season.I will be shooting either anarchy,slick trick mags or a vipertrick using this rig for late season whitetail next year...Turkey hunting is not far away and it can't get here soon enough...hurry up end of april.....Grizz

I just put 45-55lb limbs on my Omen Pro. I think it will make a great turkey bow, but I primarily have it set up for deer. I also have the Bomar stops on it and I shoot the Chinadermics too.

I've been hunting with VAPs the last couple years, total arrow weight of 305 grains with bow poundage set at 60#. Starting this spring, I'm switching to an arrow that will weigh around 500 grains and I'll shoot the bow maxed out around 55#. I have an HHA Ultra dial sight, single pin.

I have killed lots of big deer and bears with the chinadermics the last few years and i have shot bomar stops on my pse bows for years.I wouldn't shoot a pse without them now.I have not been hunting with a pse for a few years as i was sick of them, to be honest.I will be buying one more this winter...I just do not know which one as of yet....I have lots of heavy arrows but for me,I will not be shooting more than a 430 gr arrow from this setup...Grizz

I got a triax for this year because I'm going to try some blind hunting for spring turkey.i have it set at 68 but will most likely turn it down to 60 and get the benefit of the easier draw.what broadheads to you guys recommend for turkeys.

Chinadermics, they're hard to beat at less than a dollar each.

I agree, They feel even better on my Dominator that I shoot indoors. Really makes a great, stiff wall to hold against while using a hinge release.

I will also need to design a new arrow wrap and build another half dz arrows for turkey season..I will probably just shoot stalker xtremes, as i really like those arrows and for the price...they are hard to beat,I have killed a lot of animals with them...Grizz

I'm pretty new to Turkey hunting, but I'm stoked for April to come as well. Bought a longer ATA bow last February so turned down my 60lb. Drive lt to 53 lbs and shot my first Turkey with G5 Striker broadhead. I just used my whitetail setup turned down for shooting from a chair. Hope I get the opportunity to do it again, what a rush @ 8 yds!

My turkey hunting set up is a evo max @ 60#, same set up for whitetails, I have recently used the chinadermics for turkey and deer also but any large cut expandable works fine.

I have been tinkering with it this morning,switched the stabilizer to a 6" doinker,feels a lot better.I placed the order for the magnus bow pod and some feathers, along with a few arrow saw blades this morning.I am excited to get this bow dialed in for turkey season...I am planning on keeping the single pin and setting it up to shoot my mechanicals for turkey, and also setting up a multi-pin sight and use it to shoot my bullheads.I will just switch them back and forth when i want to change it up.Very solid hunting bow,I always did like the bm 32 I had before...50 lbs maxed out is like a hot knife through butter...just before spreading it on your croissant at brunch....Grizz
