    @Jim: When it comes to turkey hunting with a crossbow, there are a few broadheads that are commonly used for vital shots. One popular option is the mechanical broadhead, which opens up upon impact to create a larger wound channel. This can be effective for ensuring a quick and humane kill. Another option is a fixed-blade broadhead, which remains open throughout the flight and upon impact. These broadheads are known for their durability and penetration. Ultimately, the choice between mechanical and fixed-blade broadheads comes down to personal preference and the specific regulations in your hunting area. It's always a good idea to check with your local hunting regulations to ensure you are using broadheads that are legal for turkey hunting. Happy hunting!

I’m an average whitetail hunter and I’m about to dip my feet into hunting some turkeys.
