Are you asking if you can dig a hole and sit next to it?

On dry years this can be very effective. Have a friend that made one years ago and it worked well. Yes you can.

In a dry year, how would you get water to it?

I've been reading a lot about hunting over water lately. But our property has so many water sources. A lake, a beaver pond, a huge swamp, several creeks and every rut in a logging road has a puddle in it.

So a tank instead of a hole or dam..... interesting.....now I understand why you asked.....seems closer to bait if it is in a tank.......

A hole would leak. That would be a lot of work to dig and fill, just to have the water seep into the ground.

One of those small, ornamental pond inserts you can buy at home depot would be great. Put it in as soon as the ground thaws. Let the rain fill it up. Maybe only need to supplement it in the summer a couple times.

A water source would work. However how well it works depends on availability of near by established water sources. Just installing a water source to the location you want to hunt may not have the expected results anytime soon. Waugh!
