Gobbler Guillotine - Legality in MN?

Recommended Posts

A recent question was posed about the legality of this head in MN, and I thought I'd share what I found out in a seperate post.


I've noticed in the regs that:

. The feathers, head, and feet must remain on the wild turkey until it is registered.

However, when hunting with the guillotine, taking the head clean-off on the shot is a very real possibility. Does this mean using the Gobbler Guillotine is an illegal broadhead in MN?



The Gobbler Guillotine is legal, you just need to take the head with you when you register the bird.

THanks for looking into this Joel. I know it can be tough sometimes when technology passes up the laws on the books. Its always better to ask then get caught without knowing you're on the right side of the law.

The bigger problem for me might be the taking off of his herad as I have been know to not be the best shot around.

I can call Matt and see if they make a 12" set of blades for you Tom.

Couldn't hurt. wink.gif

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
