My pond has dried up do you lack of rain in many recent months....

I have people that hunt on both sides of me. Ive already started feeding, i want to do what i can to attract them to my spot.

I have a good area, but just need the water back. Any suggestions on making a cheap on a budget water source????

Thanks

Now is a good time to clean it out and deepen it.

If you decide to clean it out remember the top may be dry but sometimes what is underneath is not.

Always need to leave a way out, break through the top crust and the work begins

Need to be careful not to punch a hole in the bottom when your cleaning it out.

If you have a long steel rod walk the pond pounding it in the ground, that will help tell you how dry it is.
My food plot is in a low area and that helps me identify possible wet areas below the surface.
