    Start still hunting and try to get on him at likely bedding locations or get some one to kick him up for you and hope he crosses your way.

      Not really. More hunting pressure may cause them to get up and move. The reason so many big bucks can survive 6+ years in a heavily hunted area is because they become nocturnal. Wait for the moon patern to change, they are especially nocturnal during 3/4+ moon.

        Try and find his bedding area and set up closer to it and you might get a shot during legal light. But there is a fine line to walk not to push him out of the area, this will happen if you spook him a few times.

          Doing a small drive/nudge is about the only way I know of to get a crack at very nocturnal deer, otherwise you can wait till kingdom come and might never see him unless you get lucky and he follows a hot doe out of the cover.
