In mountainous terrain, deer travel funnels might be saddles, benches, a ridge point or the head of a ravine. In extensively forested areas, these features might be more subtle, but they're there. A topo map and an aerial photo can be invaluable in helping you locate them. Once you find the right terrain, head out and be prepared to spend the entire day. I've queried guides from various places across the country, and all have observed that the majority of their big bucks are taken between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Pack a lunch, bring extra clothes and stay alert.
