- Greens: Early in the fall, meadows, hay ground, pastures, and alfalfa fields are still green. These places serve as key feeding areas as they hold protein-rich insects that are important to younger birds.
- Acorns: Are there oaks in your area? Wild turkeys will forsake all other foods—and that includes greens, food plots, and grains—when acorns are dropping or available.
- Crops: Grain stubble becomes a draw once harvest is complete, especially if there isn't a rich acorn crop to keep the birds in the woods. By order of preference, turkeys like corn first, then soybeans second. Where it's still grown, wheat is good, and milo and sunflowers attract birds too.
