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.

Be careful this close to the season.

The turkeys should be there regardless of the bait. They love scratching in horse droppings and love the open land which goes along with the horses as well.

Just be patient, baiting will get you in trouble...

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.
