If you can still hunt safely, try giving it a try. I have found that still hunting can work very well with mature bucks. Still hunting is moving very, very slowly and constantly looking 360 to see what you kick up. Do this with the wind in your favor and with clothing that makes very little noise. Personally, I like fleece for still hunting. Dad told me on my first deer hunt that I needed to always be doing a 360. Well, I didn't listen very well; and I missed a chance on a nice buck. We were working our way through some very thick and tall bursh on our property. I heard a noise behind me to find a buck running over the ridge. I must have almost stepped on that buck, but he did not move until I was about 50 yards past him. You can't move too slowly while still hunting.
