A few years ago I had one gobbling on a bright sunny day about 100 yards from me. After an hour went by he quit and I figured he went down the other side of the hill with hens. I decided to walk to where I last heard him and there he was 10 yards away from me still in the tree. I just stood there in aw as he looked at me, turned around on the branch he was on, and flew down over the hill. This was around 7:30. Sometimes they fly down when it's still too dark to shoot and other times they will stay roosted until well after sunrise.

It's best not to call to them until they fly down. Sometimes a gobbler will stay up there forever until he see's the hen.
