I think if you can't get one off the roost, then 9:00 to 12:00 is the best time, but I wouldn't discount an after noon hunt either. If you can get a gobbler to respond in the afternoon, there's a good chance he'll come by to take a look.
Pay particular attention when you see birds, and the time you see them. They can be a creature of habit and can be at or near the same place at the same time each day... unmolested birds especially.
I've seen hunters give up and move too early many times. Lots of times, birds go one direction off the roost, only to reverse and come back a couple of hours later.
