Do you know where he heads back in the morning to shelter until dark? He needs an area wich is very dense, and still has access to some type of food during mid-day. Do you know where this place is?
Big bucks cannot vanish into thin air during daylight, they also cannot stay in one bed for 8,10,12 hours straight. They have to get up several times during the day to relieve themselves, browse and perhaps get a drink if it is hot, but they will not leave dense security cover to do this.
It is too late for this season, but after this season find out where that buck is holed up and figure out how to hunt that area with out him knowing it. This usually includes a well thought out entry/exit route, a steady wind, being in the tree hours before daylight and hunting all day.
