Found another system. 

https://banksoutdoors.com/product/wild-water-100-3-trough/

Being in a swamp area (costal plains), we do not have a problem with water.  Even have a river flowing on the end of our hunting club.

If you have some slope and can fairly easily get to the top of the hill with a pickup or trailer, I would suggest rigging up what you used last year with a float, and get a couple of those plastic food grade totes, even the chemical ones would probably be fine just clean them out really good before using.  leave one in the field and run a hose however long you need it from one of the totes that you leave out there and just use the other one to haul water to that one.  will all be gravity fed.
tank of gas: $50
hunting licence: $190
ammo: $20

I put out some minerals and was going to re-fill the tank. well the deer are getting enough water from plants and puddles. we were dry until this weekend and the water level was to the top after a month.

i'm guessing as summer goes on and it dries up, they will use it more. I know they pounded it in the fall


this is a learning experience. I thought it would be close to empty. i'll keep you posted

I will throw my 2 cents worth into the mix.....I think a Water Tank is a good idea....don't think you have to bury it to make it effective....many years ago, purchased a half trough feeder and put a roof over it in a remote part of the property and each time I went to hunt stop by and got some corn of it two 50 lb bags. The trough was empty each time that I would visit it, so starting carrying a 50 lb bag of corn on the ATV and make sure that I would visit the trough each time and put at least 50 lbs in it.....

Same goes for a Water Tank, have been looking at them for about 2 to 3 years now and think it is time I visit my Tractor Supply Store and buy at least a 100 gallon tank an put it on our Ga property somewhere...but the problem is that we already have running water on it viva three or four creeks, some are all weather creeks that flow year round, even in the hot summer. So where to put it? and you will have to refill it every time you visit it even if you put it in the shade....but it sure would be an attractive to the deer for sure.....

 A  used ornamental fish pond hold plenty of water and is made out of stout plastic that can hold up to harsh weather. I bet if you look around you can find a used one someone no longer wants for cheap.

bo- down there I bet any water would be a magnet, even w/ creeks. I think deer like still water better than running water anyway

So far the Plastic Wheel barrel or the Koi pond type pools seem to be the best out there.

just a side note. the deer around home aren't eating the mineral much either. up north they are just pounding them

obviously, the deer are way better off around home than up north
