Yes seem to eat just about anything that is food they can catch or find. Around here in after snow is on the ground you often see them following the manure spreaders from the diarybarns picking up the undigested seeds.

If you have a dewberry patch with ripe berries, set up your hunt near that and you'll for sure see some turkeys.

That's a cool pic.  I've seen them picking through acorns before, but always figured they were picking out bugs.
