Anyone like rage for turkeys

4 posts in this topic

Here in Indiana season for deer and fall turkey opened last wednesday. This past weekend I shot two hens with the rage 2 blade not finding either one. The first was at 45 yards and the other at 18 yards. Both were pass thoughs and what I thought were good shots. Has any one had the same problems with the rage or am I just having bad luck/ bad shot placement.

Haven't used Rage for them but shot one with Hypershock last spring which is a similiar blade. He flew about 100yrds and died in mid air.

I have a friend that knows a lot more about archery than I, and he said that the rage wouldnt be that great on a turkey because it would blow right through them because they are considerably softer than a deer. I guess for turkeys you want the broadhead to stay in them, or at least slow way down once it enters.

Hit 'em good and they won't go far no matter what you shoot. Although I haven't shot the Rage, I believe because of the large cutting diameter they should be as good as anything out there. You need to hit a turkey pretty high in the body for a quick, clean kill.

IMO, 45 yards is WAY to far to shoot at something with vitals no bigger than a softball.

Aim higher, good luck.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
