Default Bench....Saddle...?? What do these mean?

I'm sitting here reading through a Field and Stream and I keep coming across terms like bench, saddle, or whatever. What the heck do these mean?

Dairy....Take a look at your Phoenix logo.....take that bow....picture it as a hill....the limbs are the saddle, like a slow taper into a bottom,the riser is the bench, the top most level portion of a hill.But I may be wrong.

Solocamcan,

You're right about the saddle but the benches are the flat spots of landalong those saddlesup the side of a mountain or steep hill. A lot of folks will build houses on them.

I have a field journal entry that explains those all, but when HNI did it's upgrades earlier this fall, all the photos disappeared somehow.....

Get the book "Mapping Trophy Bucks" by Brad Herndon. It goes into great detail what all of those are, and how to recognize them.
