    interested to see and hear ideas for adding a small water hole. Don’t have any machinery for digging. I have heard about digging in a small kids pool? We have a few areas that are kinda dug out already from old mineral sites, they hold water for awhile but seem to drain if it’s hot and dry for awhile. So was also thinking just dig them out a little better and line The bottom with a tarp.

    My brother has tried the kiddie pool thing, we have trail cam pics of the deer standing in them all the time. They eventually end up poking a hole in the bottom with a hoof and it drains the pool. I would go for something a little more sturdy

    I have put an 8 gallon bucket out by the mineral stump the deer will use them.

    Line your pool with liquid flex seal it will withstand anything we use it for almost everything
