    Haha after you see some guilatine videos you won't think there are any others. Actually other than the guilatine I'm not sure there are any other turkey spacific broadheads out there. But don't take my word for it haha I'm not much of a turkey hunter but love the guilatine

    I also use the guillotine heads for turkey. They are intended for head/neck shots, but the 125 grain model has a 4-inch diameter, giving a little leeway. I have never wounded a bird with them, even though I got a little low with one, it still penetrated the upper breast and was quickly terminal.

    I am not fond of broadheads, as I have encountered two wounded turkeys in the field, one with a broadhead tipped arrow still in it. Not pretty. The guillotine is more a hit it or miss it proposition, which I feel is more ethical.

    I have taken 3 Tom's with the Gobbler Getter. You have a small target, aboout the size of a tennis ball and you need to keep the arrow inside the bird so they can't fly.
