That's an impressive photo Charlie.

I would say early in the season an unpressured bird will return quickly after a shot or being busted. Quickly meaning about an hour.

Later in the season they may be more wary but all would be back to normal the next day.

Stay put and continue calling. In my icon pic the front row is 3 gobblers all called in one after the other.
Turkeys don't know if the shot is a gun or a clap of thunder. Get back to calling quick and they could come right back in.
later,
charlie
