Right through the center from any angle is pretty much my technique. Pretend like he is a basketball and straight through the center. Big expandable broadhead and close shots certainly help too. Really kinda hard to go wrong.

Same here. Center of mass from any angle strutting or standing. Maybe too simple but its been effective for me.

If you look close at this frame you can see my arrow dead center! Perfect shot.

This was one of the birds I killed last season. The shot was a touch forward but still went through the chest cavity and the bird didn't go far at all.

I made all these myself. By no means claim to be an expert but this is where I aim and turkeys usually don’t go far :-)

Joe is spot on in my opinion!

I’d agree with joe... heck we both shot birds today with a total recovery distance of zero yards. :-)
