Whitetail funnels

I am new to whitetail, and will be in southern illinois the first week of december to hunt. I have heard that hunting funnels will be very productive, but I don't really know what they are, and where to find them. I hunt mule deer and elk all the time, so i havn't ever dealt with this vefore. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Funnels are just narrow areas of cover that run between 2 areas deer frequent. Between bedding areas and feeding areas typically.

I prefer to be back in the woods about 50 - 100yds from the field edge at night and try to catch them on their way back to bedding in the morning.

I would stay down wind in cover that will conceal you but allow a clear opening to shoot through. Make sure you can get to your spot quietly and leave quietly. Most important is to stay downwind. Distance depends on available cover and your shooting ability. I would try the evening first.
