fall hunting has it's own challenges. Far different than spring.
1. As said pattern. Be where they want to feed and be there before they get there.
2. Find a flock, sneak as close as you can and then rush them. Run at them screaming and hollering. Your goal is to make them fly in all directions. When the flock is busted up, sit down in that spot, wait a bit and start calling. Use lost hen calls and a series of kee-kee run calls. You'll get a few to come back.
3. Sneak as close as you can to get your shot. I have done this and bagged a bird and also busted up the flock and was able to use #2 to get a 2nd bird many times.
Tom's will gobble in the fall but not very often.
4. Sit known roost spots
