The landowner has horses and wont let us put out feeders with corn. He had one get into some grain and almost died. Is there anything else we can feed to draw the birds into our area without hurting the horses?

Seems to do better spread over a large area. They will find it.

Why would you want to start feeding turkeys now?

You could try using a turkey feeder like the one H.S. makes, they sell for about $100 last time I checked. The holes are only big enough for a turkey's head to enter. They might drop some on the ground but would probably eat that too. They fit under a 55 gal. drum. All you need then is the plastic funnel to put on the inside of the drum. Maybe buy some posts and wire to put up a fenced area around the feeder.... the turkeys could go under the wire and it would keep the horses out.

YEP! I dont know if alfatoxins played a role in that deal or not but alfatoxins from corn that turkey hunters put out to kill their limit over can do alot of harm. An old fart used to feed 200 pounds a week next to a farm I hunt, of course he would kill a gobbler every day over it until he get his limit so he thought he was doing great. One Spring though alfatoxin got in the corn and killed ALOT of turkeys. That area went from being covered in turkeys to having virtually none. The old man died though and now the turkeys are starting to come back but there isnt even a 1/4 of what there was before that old peckerwood unintentionally poisoned them by feeding corn to hunt over.
