Find, watch the does the first two hours and the last 45 minutes of daylight. That’ll do.

 :yeah:  Keep playing the rut.  Bucks will still be moving, looking for receptive doe.  If you can find an area that the doe are currently using, find a spot downwind where you can be hidden and still see your surroundings well.  Don't kill whole days on one spot unless you're positive that you will see doe.  Glassing a four - five year old cut from above might just give you a perfect view down in between the reprod trees, allowing you to see bucks moving through the area looking for doe. 

Most of all, you just have to stay out there and stay focused on hunting.  As soon as you start rushing along or daydreaming, that is exactly the time that the buck will show up and freak out - gone forever.  Hunt till last light every day.  The last fifteen minutes of the day are often the best minutes of the day.

I would go right back to where you had seen the doe before, there will be a buck sniffing around.
