Buffer Using a DEM

I am doing some habitat modeling that relies on distance to critical resources on a landscape as a key indicator of animal locations.  I want to create a buffer zone around a series of points but want to have the distances of the buffer zones be based on actual overland distance using a DEM not just linear "as the crow flies" distance.

Any thoughts?
