If you bust a roost on a lake they usually come back in a day or two, usually not the same spot but on the same lake. I'm not sure if that applies to rivers like the st. Croix. And just to keep from offending field hunters I'll say I only bust roost ponds at freeze up or when the owner asks me to, I certainly don't want to mess up a hot field for a guy.
