RAPID CITY, SD (March 18, 2024) – As spring turkey hunting season approaches the National Bowhunter Education Foundation (NBEF) reminds bowhunters to revisit shot placement information. NBEF’s Advanced Turkey Anatomy and Shot Placement Guide is an essential resource to elevate success rates and promote responsible hunting practices. A quick harvest and reduced game recovery times are considered best practices for wild turkey hunters.

The Advanced Turkey Anatomy and Shot Placement Guide is an informative shot placement training aid with full color 8.5″ x 11″ 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. Useful for hunting guides, hunter education instructors or today’s informed hunter. Responsible hunting includes knowledge of accurate shot placement for a quick kill and game recovery. Technical expertise and guidance for this booklet was provided by the National Wild Turkey Foundation. This 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 3-hole punched making it easy to collect all four booklets. Suggested retail $12.50 each.

“Even experienced hunters can use these tools as a refresher for a better hunting experience,” explained NBEF Executive Director Marilyn Bentz. “NBEF provides educational items that can improve accuracy which lead to safer and more successful hunts.”
NBEF helps bowhunters be safe, successful and stewards of the sport. NBEF offers bowhunting instructional items, books, videos, 3-D models, apparel and more at nbef.org.
