We always just used whatever old heads we had that had become slightly dull. That way you had a little less chance of pass throughs. Its hard to fly off with an arrow sticking out both sides(through the wings)

Bullheads= no tracking if you get somewhat close to where you are aiming.

turkeys and javelina are about the only ones i use rage and spitfires for.Every thing else gets" tricked ". The new rage 2.3" will get a chance next javelina season. They are thin skined and penetration is not a problem, I want the biggest hole I can put through them.

Large Cutting Diameter expandable broadheads (insert your favorite brand here....NAP Spitfires for me). I am going to try the 85gr Grim Reapers this year since I switched arrow set ups....

Im just using my 1 3/8 grim reapers with carbon arrows. I bet the 2 inch grim reaper would be pretty lethal on turkey as well.
