A N.West wind would cause the thermal tunnel effect. Rising thermals and a wind over the top. In that situation I would expect bucks cruising right in the spot you have marked during the pre-rut.

Imagesorry lost the pic but got it back :lol: i actually had two bucks that mournig cruse that funnel one of the deer was a 120-125 8 point 2 1/2 year old i passed it and my boddie shot it on halloween night and i wasnt very happy cause ive been wacthing this buck for two years and passed him acople differnt times. I told him not ot shot it but he coulnt resist, but in the end i wasnt to mad it was his biggest buck :D . i try to judge them my best and try to shoot at least 3 1/2 and ill hold out if i know if its got good potential. other buck wonder on to my land during the pre rut from the neighboring farms, so ive never seen most of these deer and they walk through this funnel prety fast and leave me with little time.
