Default new area, quick remote scout, a little help?

Well here it is

This area is pretty flat with basically second growth mixed hard and soft woods, and swamp. I have tried to identify a few terrain features to focus on.
The two red X drawn on the map show what I see as funnels. Do you think the deer will use these higher areas to move out of and between the swampy lower areas? Upon viewing the picture I see that the detail is pretty poor. The X at the top is on a saddle between a small section of swamp, and a small bowl type pond. The other X is at the head of a little ridge pointing at a swampy area.

A little pre-season scouting on the ground should have been done about a month or so ago. You have to identify feeding areas, trails, old scrapes, bedding areas and other needed information. A topo is nice, but this one doesn't tell a lot of information that would be useful in hunting.

Yes I know. Unfortunately I just got permission to use this property. I know there are deer there, as I have done a quick walk around, and saw some sign. The image is not very good either. I am going to try to upload a full size image to the net and link to it.
