The best thing to do if you bump them off the roost is wait right there, unless you hear another gobbler or have another good spot I would move. This is coming from a guy that has never had much land or much good turkey hunting land, I am used to not having other options.
I don't know why, but they seem to come back to their roost once they have calmed down. If it was a gobbler and some hens, he should be gobbling his head off after he settles down.
There is no guaruntees in turkey huntin though!

Well I sat still for about 3 hours and never heard or seen any come back but at least I know what area to avoid in the dark

A lot depends on if they realized what the threat was. Ive been caught lots of times, and just flattened out. Then I just slowly start callin, real soft clucks, and it settles em down.
