Lordy!  My birds go nuts when they see my orange poncho when I'm up a tree in the Fall.  Yikes!  Sometimes its downright hilarious.

Amazing how they can spot hunter orange 16 ft up a tree!

It was probably the Scout that sent them a runnin...[:D]

Goodness, I haven't seen one on the road in decades! Had 5 altogether throughout the younger years, 60, 69, 70, 71 and 77 for the final one..

Oh the memories...[;)]

Hey cyclone; we see them on the roads all the time, I think I mentioned in another post that on my way to the property I hunt there had to be 70 or more birds seen in a 15 mile strech of road. Usually coming out mid afternoon when their moving. I almost stopped and picked up a fresh roadkill turkey just so I could get the fan for my decoy, but I thought the game warden might have concerns LOL

Ron - I have a test location not too far from my house, a "No Hunt Zone" that is the home to a couple flocks of turkeys; a public access bicycle path runs right through it. I'll go for a ride and test the calls that i've made on those birds. Don't know if there are any places like that were you live... 
There used to be a farm close to my home that had some domestic birds. I never had to worry about educating them, there was a new set of birds every year.
