Those are a couple of extreme circumstances, to be sure.
Although an organized turkey drive seems ridiculous, totally unsafe and unproductive, turkeys can be persuaded to go in a certain direction. Years ago I was hunting with my friend and his son. We saw a gobbler in a pasture heading down a creek edge toward the intersection of two country roads and came up with a plan. We dropped the kid off over a hill and he skirted through some timber to the creek bottom. I took the truck and headed for the intersection. I turned right and went to the top of the hill and turned around...then I waited a couple of minutes. Then I went back down the hill and turned left, returning to where I had started...and waited a couple of minutes. I repeated this pattern about three times. Sure enough, the gobbler decided there was too much traffic, or human presence, reversed direction and headed back down the creek the way he came. My friend's son shot the gobbler where the creek entered the woodlot. This was all on private property, of course, where we had permission to hunt.
Just as in deer hunting, there are lots of Ya-hoos in the woods especially on Public land. You can head off the tomfoolery and a lot of the pressure by finding some private ground to hunt.
