    Got tired of the old layout, so I dug a new water hole adjacent to my food plot!

    There used to be a spring right there, about 3'deep and 10' around....the aqufer got so low this last year that it dried up....all that tan looking stuff is clay....and the bowl is now packed tight....need to make a buncha trips cross the levee....tractor and 4wheeler are the only vehicles that aren't too wide.:up:

    Hopefully this rain will put the water in the hole. Can't wait for daylight to see if mine has come up. Not much deeper that a mud puddle for the last couple months. I wonder if there is any fish left.:frown:

    We've got a little water running off. Been a while since I heard that squish sound when walking.
