Heck yeah WNY is the bomb!!! Turkeys galore and I love it here!!! Most books that I have read say that the Eastern Turkey is the hardest species to hunt. I do fairly well against the Easterns.

Yes they are huge & need to know they are made for taking a bird in the head not the body they also are not made for long distance I could be wrong but Ithink the affective range is like 15-20 yards max I just use one of my rage for strictly turkey hunting also check your states rules regarding min draw weight & broadhead use & good luck
Personally I think Bowhunting for turkey is a lot more exciting but I am taking both w/ me in case I get that Tom that hangs up out of bow range

( gobbler Guillotine ) $44.99 3 pk 100gr is a 2.5" cutting area and the 125 gr is a 4" cutting area. and yes these are made for neck shots and as their properly named (guillotine) and like GF said 20 yards is about all you will get out of these because they grab a lot of air in flight and hard to get a true flight over about 20 yards

Tics are becoming a problem for a lot of hunters in many parts of the country., Here's one one way you can treat your hunting spot to lessen the chances of being bothered by ticks during your turkey hunts...
You should be able to find a pesticide pump sprayer at your local garden supply store similar to this one That along with a good mixture of Diazinon or a good mixture of Dursban will work really well and won't harm your hunting activities.

Forgot to mention that if you're having any problems at home with ticks or fleas on pets, treating your lawns the same way will help your pets.
This is how I always treat my lawns and you should switch back and forth between pesticides for maximum effectiveness.
