Thank you txshntr for the help! Now when it comes to these hilly environments, where do deer normally bed? The field that we hunted before was next to this really steep ridge and in-between the ridge and the field was a river bed. I would assume deer bed in that area, but I'm clueless.
Without knowing the terrain and the vegetation of your area, it is only a guess, so the advice is worth about what you paid for it
For the most part, the whitetail are a creature of comfort and will take the easiest path. A steep ridge isn't going to be a high travel route, but if the hills are big enough and there are "thermals" the deer will use those to detect danger from above or below when bedding around steeper terrains.
Try to find saddles where the steep ridges are at the lowest point and allow a less steep entrance and exit. These will be travel routes that might point you in the direction of feeding/bedding.
For bedding, it is going to be depend on the vegetation and terrain. Some deer prefer the more open areas with small thick cover, some prefer thick cover and some want to be on the side of an open hill. I have seen river bottoms be hit and miss with bedding. I guess what I am saying is that I don't know
In thick, hilly terrain they will bed in a lot of different places. Some high, some low, some at the bases and some in the river bottoms. If you find the bedding, stay out of it and make sure your wind stays out of it. Hunt the edges and trails that lead in and out of it.
