Anyone ever try one? The turkeys were eating the wheat & oats before I could get the clover sown.

Yeah, they'll work but you have to move it every day or so or else they will get used to it.
I've also just hung fertilizer bags or grocery store bags off tree limbs, fence posts or whatever so the wind will make them move. Works for awhile, hopefully untill your seed sprouts.

I just buy my brother-in-law a couple cases of cheap beer and set him out there. Seems to keep them away ok. Might get a few buzzards after a day or two.
