Crash Course: Identify Funnels & Pinch Points for the Whitetail Rut
In this episode of Crash Course ("Identify Funnels and Pinch Points"), host Mark Kayser details the strategies involved with using funnels and pinch points to improve your odds of bagging a trophy whitetail buck during the rut this season.
Funnels are large natural or man-made features that bring deer down a specific route of least resistance. Think of a big block of timber with field edges on either side, funneling whitetails from point A to point B.
A pinch point is where the terrain or feature narrows, or "necks down," significantly. This is "where you put your tree stand or your ground blind, whatever type of ambush you're going to set up," Kayser said.
