Other than trying to use the other hunter to your advantage, I think I would do just like you don't let him know you are there. He may decide the area doesn't have any bucks and will leave. I do use real antlers during the rut along with doe in heat scents. I believe they work at least 25 % of the time which may give me an advantage for that moment. I don't over use the horns but if I see a nice buck not turning my way I'll give him a short sequence and a couple of grunts from a call, hopefully thats the ticket.
