The longer you can sit the better. As far as calling, if the birds are very vocal and your hearing a lot of hen talk then you can call every 15-20 min. if your not then once an hour. The hardest thing for a new caller to learn is you never answer a tom you make him answer you, you only answer hens. If it's been quiet and you hear a bird gobble don't grab your call and answer him right away, wait 10-15 min. then call softly, if he answers right back then quit and get ready. If a hen answers your call copy her call for call, volume for volume. If the hen takes him away, he'll still gobble, then you reverse your calling start out loud and go soft. One of the two should answer you, answer back softly.
