Buck breakdown from Nov. 7: What makes the perfect pinch point
Pinch points don't always jump off the map on all pieces of land when studying aerials. It often takes finding these areas during the scouting process, and there are usually subtle terrain features that will influence deer movement and create the bottlenecks we love to hunt over during the rut.
In areas of riverbottom where flooding is a common occurrence, I find that a lot of these bottlenecks are created by low areas that gather a lot of deadfall or water that holds on into the fall creating small ponds. In this video, I break down what makes this particular pinch point so good with a north-based wind and how it should have led to me using my archery tag in Minnesota on a good buck from a morning hunt on Nov. 7 during the 2019 season.
