The National Bowhunter Education Foundation (NBEF) is offering a shot-placement guide to help wild turkey hunters improve shot accuracy for a quick harvest and game recovery. The Advanced Turkey Anatomy and Shot Placement Guide is an informative shot placement training aid with full-color 8.5x11-inch transparent overlays. Separate acrylic overlays feature the muscular system, skeletal system, circulatory system and vital organs specific to turkeys. Accompanying text includes shot-placement information and illustrations for both firearm hunters and bowhunters. Technical expertise and guidance for this booklet was provided by the National Wild Turkey Foundation.

This material is part of the International Bowhunter Education Program Hunter Responsibility Series, which includes anatomy and shot-placement guides for whitetail deer, bear and elk. All guides are three-hole punched, making it easy to collect all four booklets.

“NBEF provides educational items that can lead to safer and more successful hunts,” shared NBEF executive director Marilyn Bentz. “Even experienced hunters can use these tools as a refresher for a better experience in the field.”
