Pinch points; anything that funnels them into a smaller corridor. Might be terrain, water, or thick vegetation they don’t want to fight through.

Funnels, saddles on the mountain tops make good funnels.

The NF spot I've been hunting it's the ridgetop flats.

Until the snow falls I’ll be on pinch points if there is traffic in the woods but mostly standing on funnels or a sweet inside corner. After we get snow it’s all about tracking

Low gaps are a favorite here. A favorite site on the property I hunt is a point overlooking a flat that runs above a cliff.

About 1/3 up the mountain where the transition from swamp fir trees change to hardwood and the sunrises behind me. Specific enough? 🧐

Put many down there over the years. Most of them leaving the low lands/fields in the AM for bedding on the sunny side of the mountain behind me.

I watch a lot of those tracking videos on YouTube. Snow is rare these days during our seasons, but the Mountaineer Heritage Season is in January, so there’s a chance for snow during it. Don’t have the legs for big woods tracking, but always enjoy poking around in the snowy woods, season open or not. In recent years, we’ve really gotten dumped on in January or February, cutting off access to my WMA for days or weeks.

My old man would hunt the thickets I’m trending that way I would ask him why and his response was that’s where the deer are

That’s some of my favorite deer hunting. Usually 2/3 up a hill here but hunting benches on hillsides or the runways leading out of the swamps.

The bears are a scurge in my area! They have taken over running around like stray dogs and are useless POS....Another reason I like to hunt Ohio and Indiana (no freakin bears)..Hb

Deers don’t like bears I’ve found that out they’ll ruin a good spot bear dogs will as well
