I am kind of a patient hunter, I will give that tom a good hour to show his beak, It's all based on location,setup,patience, and good camo

If the Turkey is answering my calls (key point answering my calls) I will wait, even if he is henned up he will come to you when he gets done with them.  I have killed a few birds doing this not the preferred method but patience is key in turkey hunting.  I have also left the area went back to the truck, ate a sandwich, drank a soda, had a 30 minute catnap and came back, sat by the exact same tree and called the bird right up into my lap only to feed him a load of 6 shot.  You couldnt tell me anything that day.
