Tackling a Turkey Jinx — Broadheads

Turkeys are bowhunting’s ultimate challenge. In fact, I have had better luck shooting pheasant out of the air with my bow than I have turkeys on the ground. That can be contributed to my turkey jinx more than anything, but just because Tommy Three Toes continually vexes me does not mean I won’t be out this Spring looking to sink an arrow in his side.

Broadhead selection for turkey is important and a sore spot for me. I used think any ol’ broadhead would do, after all, it’s only an 18- to 25-pound bird.

I mean, if my bow would let the air out of a monster Pennsylvania whitetail, how hard could a turkey be?

My turkey jinx showed me just how wrong I could be and went something like this.

I was hunting down in Georgia with Mossy Oak’s crew. The turkey jinx already bit me several times in the past and I was dead-set on breaking my losing streak. Mossy Oak had supplied me some of their best turkey experts to make sure it happened. It was my jinx against their combined skills.
