I'd suggest hunting the "food sources".
I live in Ohio and that is when you have the chance at really crappy weather. Rain, Snow, Rain-Snow mix, & Wind. I would say that you really don't see a lot of activity on those days but they do move a little. In my opinion, I have seen a lot of movement after a weather front moves through. I shot 2 really nice deer last year, a buck and a doe. Both animals were taken after a front moved through the area. They had probably bedded down the day prior and were waiting on the weather to break before they moved around. I hope this helps.
post-rut you can often grunt, bleat and rattle in bucks who are looking for one more good time. Food sources too as bucks need to replenish, having not eaten for a couple weeks.
Yeah, what steve182 said.
This may not qualify as an active strategy, but somebody or something has got to get the bucks moving. I have found that staying with your stand during the noon lunch hour when other hunters are on the move can sometimes make things happen.
Don't forget the second rut. Might not be rife season anymore but the bucks will be looking.
