If I know there are birds in an area I do not shock call. I get set up at least 1/2 hour before shooting hours ((1/2 before sunrise) and make a few calls. Once they are off the roost they will locate you. If you are setting up that late the birds are already roaming around and you are more likely to bump them out than find them. Good luck. 1/2 the challenge is finding birds so you are on the home stretch.
Good advice, even if you don't score there is nothing like being in the springtime woods in the early morning. Whilst sitting there waiting for a bird look at the green canopy. How many shades of green are there? Could you ever paint such a picture? One in such a quandary is blessed.
