Default A little advice from experienced hunters please!

So here's the deal........
On the property that I am hunting I have seen a big mature buck multiple times in the same area. So I set up a blind on a ridge that overlooks another ridge and a valley where I have seen him. Every time I try hunting that area...NOTHING, dont see him or anything... but If i'm hunting another area and start walking back to my truck through that valley, I disturb him in his bedding area and I see him every single time that I walk through that valley.
On the days that I am trying to hunt him, the wind has always been in my favor, and I take extreme precautions to control scent. What could I be doing wrong to make him stay out of the area when i am hunting it?
