Default need epert advice on "BIG" Bucks

I need some expert advice on bagging a trophy buck. I hunt in S.E. Ohio and there are plenty around but i have never managed to harvest anything over a basket rack 8 pointer. I have averaged 3 bow kills a year over the last 20 years. I have absolutely no problems with does and basket racks. I passed up around a dozen bucks and a ton of does each of the last 4 to 5 years waiting on the big boy I have had a couple close entcounters, but they always come up behind me. I don't shoot does when I am hunting bucks until it is the last day before going home. I wear scent lock, rubber boots and go to extremes with scent control. It has to be something with my set up. The area I hunt has a lot of hills 800 to a 1000 feet elevations. lots of agriculture. I tend to set up 2/3 of the way up the hills in the morning between beds and feed. I often sit all day. Any expert tips will be greatly appriciated. i am definately missing something
