I am a bow hunter as well as an airgunner… I have killed over 30 turkeys with my bow, the last dozen or so with a “broadhead” called the turkey guillotine… It has 4 blades that essentially make a 90 degree 4 way cross. The principle of the head is to neck-shoot the turkey severing it’s spinal cord/head… In every case, the successful shot just drops the turkey in its tracks… it lays stiff and dormant for a minute or 2, then slow and progressively the body begins wild twitching and reactions that actually get them airborne sometimes… It is very violent, but it never happens instantaneously. There’s always a delay… It is a good way to take them out with a bow because there’s no tracking needed, and you either miss cleanly or drop them DRT (well, after the flopping is over :)  )
