Lois asks:

In medieval (and other) hunting, it was the custom for beaters to drive game
into a sort of chute, at the end of which hunters would be set up and
waiting.  What did they call the killing end of the chute?  Neither
cul-de-sac nor box canyon, methinks, tho' at least the former is French...


This is probably another "not quite what you're looking for," but in the
American west, there's the term "buffalo jump."
