Here is what to look for.
If you did your pre-season scouting you know where the doe bedding and feeding areas are, from there look for features in the landscape that “funnel” deer movement through a small spot between the two locations. Buck funnels are everywhere you just have to find them.
Here are a few examples of what constitutes a funnel.
- Narrow fingers of timber leading out into an open field or connect two larger wood lots.
- Narrow and shallow creek crossings.
- Overgrown fence-rows.
- A segment of broken barbwire fence where deer easily can cross.
- Saddles (shallow points between two hills).
- Woodland corners.
