Hence, I have concluded that the reason you had chosen to make the decision to wait them out rather than hunt them off the roost was because they had not been responsive to calling in a typical roost set-up situation, and most likely, had not been inclined to deviate from their routine to come to calls later in the morning.
So, I must conclude that you had chosen your course of action with these birds because you had patterned them and knew that this was, without question, your best bet for success. So, the question I would ask would be..."Having committed yourselves to this set-up, why would any of you get antsy and want to abandon it after only 90 minutes of waiting?" From the description of the circumstances, there is little doubt in my mind that one or more gobblers will be dispatched, in time, by sticking to the plan.
In summary, have faith in your strategy, tell your partners to stay still and alert,....and at some point, snoods will hit the dirt.
