    Any naturally occuring funnel is a good spot. Examples include:
    Where two big stands of hardwoods are joined together by a small strip of hardwoods,
    a saddle in a ridge,
    a narrow/shallow section of a river/creek that they will use to cross,
    the shortest open distance between two patches of cover,
    dry strip of land between two swampy area's
    You get the idea, funnel all the deer through an area, and your bound to find one you like.
    Another good spot is in a SMALL stand of hardwoods in an open field that has a good food source in it, big bucks have a tendancy to not want to travel too far.
    A river bottom with good cover is also good.
    That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

    Problem is, those fleshy deer don't tend to stand around and let you analyze the shot like those foamy ones do.

    I'm with you, I like hunting edges. If I go down to southern Ohio, I like hunting the bottoms of hollers. It seems the worst its going to be getting them out, the better.

    The properties I hunt they tend to be at the same places. Every deer I have taken has been the at same place on my own property (although I've seen them other places).

    My three best spots..

    1.Small Island's surronded by swamp. Great spot to ambush bucks early in the year as they come up on the dry ground to bed.

    2. Downwind side of a doe bedding area. Nothing beats a afternoon hunt in November in this spot. I can watch the doe's and fawns as they stand up out of their beds in the swamp. I only hunt this spot during rut and only when the wind is perfect. The last 2 years Ive conected on two nice bucks as they scent checked the bedding areas from downwind.

    3. A draw or cut in a ridge....my best spot for morning action. I hunt this spot only in the morning due to the complexity it takes to get there. The ridge has a large swamp on both sides. Deer use the cut to cross over the ridge during daylight hours. Every deer that cross's over within 100 yards use's this cut. I saw 9 bucks last year on the morning of November 3rd from this stand..Just that little suttle change in the ground really makes a difference.

    I stay away form hard feild edges,,,,natural funnels are good spots when the time is right. But if I had to pick one spot during the rut I'll take the down wind side of a doe bedding area all day. You would be suprised how far away from the bedding area a buck will cruise looking for scent. All the bucks Ive taken this way in the past were at least 100 yards from the bedded does. The big boys are smart..they dont run all over heck looking for active doe's..They just simply walk around the downwind side of the bedding areas with their nose to the wind..if they smell a girl freand well then they attack. But if not they just go to the next group..

    My best stand can be ruined if I dont pay attention to the number one thing..WIND. It's all a mood point if the wind is wrong. I only hunt 3 stands in November...All set up for different wind directions. When in doubt I sit it out...Id rather sit in the truck and glass feilds than spook a nice deer that winds me.

    man can you tell bow season is close????????
