PERFECT nothing else to say as far as a side shot; be paciant & wait for that shot, get em close less than 10 yards ! The sounds a strutting tom makes are unforgetable "puff ti boooom" & the vibration you will actualy feel...
I have been awakend to that sound more than once, I feel my silence & my decoy set up attracts more birds.
I started bowhunting for turkeys in 1996 and took head shots without any luck, 5 or 6 at least over time.
Then my first harvest was @ 3 yards thru the side of my "home made" blind; right there as pictured....
Do have any pictures of the rear shot or spine shot ?
The Texas Heart Shot is one of the best shots to take on a strutter, it runs your arrow clean through everything needed to be hit and most time they just tip over.
