Google.maps also has aerial photos in color that in some places you can zoom in enough to see individual people. those are also a great asset to have to compare to topo maps if you have the same scale.

Always pay attention to wind direction. No matter if you have a Scent Lok suit on or not. If the deer get your scent they will most likely vanish.

I haven't bow hunted in a couple of years, but the last time I did I set up 25 yards away from a run between feeding, and bedding area, worked great, it wasn't a funnel area though. I would bet the funnel tech. would probaly work better.

Find the animals and hunt them while the sign in the area is still fresh. Get into and out of your stand location without spoking the deer(pay attention to the wind and where it is blowng even on your entrance and exit). They will not come back for a week or so if they know you are hunting them from any particular location and when they do they will be on red alert. Don't overhunt any area, one or two times (morning and evening can be counted as 2 times each) in a week but if you find fresh sign while out scouting you will probobly be able to kill the deer on the first visit if you sit on stand all day. Most of the deer I have gotten it was between 9:30am and 2:00pm.
You will have the very best luck on the first visit to each stand location.

from the time the sun comes up you should be in your stand you should be walking there when its still dark and ya usually the mornin ours when the sun first comes up and the dew is on the grass and the deer can feel the nice warm sun on them in the fields is the time they are out and walking till noon then another from supper till night
