First off a mile plus is not big deal for pressured deer to walk to feeding areas. They may choose to not move until after dark.

Deer will not bed in water but will bed in spots surrounded by water. Most swamps provide that kind of opportunity.

Does tend to bed closer to food sources than bucks.

Pressure will determine how far back deer bed from your food sources.

Entry and exit routes have to be carefully chosen to not alert deer via sound or scent.

Scouting will give you a idea of patterns. Try sitting in an observation stand that does not alert a deer to your presence.

Good luck.
