190 is a VERY BIG DEER! Are you sure he's in the 190's? I dont doubt it if you say it, thats just a rare deer. Do you have any trail cam photos of this deer we could see? My best advise to you is hunt the days D&DH says to hunt on the calendar for your area. My other advise to you is just stay on stand all day, dont move and I wouldnt bait if I were you either. Some time luck is all ya need.

This technique is not for beginners, but if you have the patience, it can be a very effective way to get a shot at a big buck with a firearm, during the full rut.......and that is to stillhunt the general area where you are seeing a lot of does, and rut sign (scrapes, rubs, etc.)
 
When dominant bucks are on the move, they can appear almost anywhere, and anytime. You MUST know the ground you are going to stillhunt on like the back of your hand. Look for areas where deer stage, and be always on the look out for a solo doe, that is displaying definate signs that she is in estrous. If you do, stillhunt the area she was in, being ever on the watch for any movement in the area downwind of where she was.
 
Stillhunting gives you the freedom to move as conditions dictate, and a better chance to intercept, or maybe even move in on a buck who's on the move also, and who many times isn't paying the close attention to his survival instincts as he normally would, as his mind is occupied with "other" things!
 
The biggest buck I ever killed, and several others that are in my top 5 were killed this way.
Hunt Hard,

Kill Swiftly,

Waste Nothing,

I'd use a WLRC scrape dripper to hopefully keep him in the area,and scent killer products, then HUNT ALL DAY, until someone bumps him out of his bedding area towards you by chance. There is many more pointers that can be suggested, but you have to start somewhere. You could still end up hunting all season and never see him, but atleast you will know you gave him 100% effort.

Can you post some of the trail cam pics?  That would allow others to guesstimate the score?
