You may be on to something with that cross cutter trail. It will be faint. That's the buck way of time saving. Instead of running each doe trying to smell if she's ready he'll just cross cut every trail to single out a receptive doe. When you do discover the smell like heck your in the right spot. The smell may be bad but in turn the outcome should be good. I'm trying to visualize this, does the funnel pull all the trails together to form one trail then crosses the bayou then you have the faint trail cross cutting. If that's the case you ought to be in a excellent spot. Not only should you see cross cutting bucks, but you may see bucks that are already with does or trying to get some crossing he bayou. Remember for how unpredictable bucks can get they still keep their wits about staying and using cover more than half the time.
