it sounds like a natural funnel if it is real steep the deer should be using the easyest way to the fields.
You know me I like those funnels. Is there any kind of brush or timber at the top of the ledge where you could put a ground blind where you could watch the field and the skinny part of the bottoms at the same time.
I can check into that, I think there is a good place just like that there, Im not sure how far I could see into the river bottoms though.  I will get to check more when turkey season rools around

That narrow end needs your attention like the others said.It may only get used if there is a favorable crop at that end.also look for a possible place the deer cross the river,about 30-40 yards from the end.
If you can watch with a scope from far away,and by all means find out who else is hunting that property and when.

If the deer are in the field in the morning youll need to sneak into your stand area. can you use the river via canoe or hip boots for access. that way you can move up the river and be below the field to get to your stand. definetly hang your stand where the deer come off the field. look for old rubs and scrapes now and those trails will probabbly be the ones the bucks will use next year. hope this helps
