Practice with them beforehand and make sure you put the plastic sleeves over the blades or they'll plain off. I like to setup a cucumber on an old arrow out in the yard. I have guillotines all set up to shoot, but I've only shot the Magnus Bullhead at turkeys. Good luck.

Make sure you have arrows that match the heavier head and that they are capable of stabilizing those big blades. I really want to try them someday.

Cucumber is a good idea, what exactly do you mean by plane off? drop, veer one way or another? Thanx for the tips guys

i asked the bow hunting specilist at scheels one day about them, his respones was both good and bad. he said they are good for the fact that it is a quick kil, but he also said they are hard to shoot like sticknstring says. the guy at scheels said the best way to get the most accurate flight is to use a store lenght arrow, with 4 inch vanes that have a big helix. i have watched alot of turkey hunts on tv and they all seem to be going to the rage 2 blade. just something to think about.

Plane off means as the arrow fly's it will start to go left or right off course. To solve this problem some of the broadhead manufatures of the gillotine style heads use straws over the blades so the blades don't act like a wing and steer the broadhead off course. My solution to this is shoot a retractable broadhead like the NAP Spitfire or Rage.

And to bring the law's into this the feathers,head and feet must remain on the wild turkey until registered in the state of minnesota. So if you use a gillotine style head and take it's head off it is an illegal bird according to the law.

I have been experimenting with this as well but with the bullhead. Just remember that you will need a stiffer arrow to shoot them. I had to order new arrows last week and they are not here yet. Good Luck and share your experience with us on how they work for you.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
