I would remember that bed for future hunts, first off. As for hunting it again right away in hopes of another buck bedded there chances are slim IMO. I'd focus on finding another potential buck bed or good doe bedding areas with rut on. But I'm not an expert

Scrapes can be fickle. Sometimes those scrapes are primarily night time. I'm not saying they can't come check them during daylight. In my encounters scrapes haven't paid off for a mature buck. I try and focus more on doe bedding areas and funnels/pinch points. But I would not forget that bed, it maybe worth a check when conditions are right. Was the buck bedded there mature? Look for an adjacent bed close by by "stacking" and process of elimination you maybe able to put odds in your favor.
