    Can anyone tell me what a "draw" and a "finger" mean when people are talking about terrain features. I've been trying to learn some new tactics for scouting from online/in magazines and I am at a roadblock because these two features are used to often describing how to pin down a deer. Any help would be appreciated!

    All are minor land features. A draw is a downward slopping dry river bed. A coolie is a long shallow cut in a plain. A finger is a slim ribbon of land jutting into water like an isthmus. If there is an island at the end it is a neck. A kill is dutch for a small river IE Bever kill, Fish kill or Harries Kill. A Billi-bong is a small pond conncted to a river like a Cull de sac of a road. A ridge is a long row of mountains. A saddle is a depression between two pecks. A valley is surrounded by mountains only if it is dry. If it's wet it's a lake. Glad I got that out of my system.

      a draw is a low spot in the land, like a large ditch. there is one draw on the property I hunt and it has lots of tall grass, bushes, shrubs, and a few trees. deer tend to travel through these to get to food sources or bedding areas. at the end of my draw there is an alfalfa field, and at the other there is a large block of timber.
      a finger is when there is a large block of woods, and then more woods comes out of it in a long "finger". kind of like you fist is the woods and your finger is the, well, finger.
