First thing you do is in mid oct go looking for the first scrapes. When you find a scrape make a mock scrape right over the top of it (using sticks and then hang a dripper with the scape scent on the branch above the scrape. You will get all sorts of bucks visiting the scape it drives them crazy and they will eventually start coming out during the day.
Once halloween comes change the drippers to doe estrus.
Make sure to hang a camera right at the scrape
This will for sure get the bucks work up and the drippers only drip during the day so they will be looking to catch the other buck in the act and hopefully you can have a chance at him.
And Oh ya try to hunt all day halloween and the following week thats when I see the big ones mid day

Right now mineral plots will help as well
Remember where theres does there will be bucks later big bucks
Hope that helps
