I've hunted a few afternoons but haven't stayed until dark. What time are they going to roost? I passed a place I hunt just down from my house after work today and saw birds. Ran home and grabbed my stuff and was there at 5:30. Saw 3 Jakes (could have killed 2 that were 15 yards away) but there's one long beard and several hens. They went to a pipeline and the jakes and some hens went one way and the longbeard and two hens went another. Saw them walk in the woods and it was 6:40 and I had to leave without hearing them fly up. Gonna go back in the morning for an hour or so before work but wondering how much further they may have gone before roosting.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
