That is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. Wish I could do that since we have zero water on the property I hunt.

Sorry been a little busy with end of year activities, here is a short video of what comes to it over several month span. I have not harvested any animals yet; but I only hunt the area 3 times a year, my FIL has commented how deer numbers on the property have gone from 2-3 deer seen to 8-10 now spotted. I can't say whether the waterer has helped the numbers or the wet season we've experienced this year but we'll take either one!

Honestly I only get out there once or twice during deer season and the deer population is finally making a come back in that part of the county, so I really hate to shoot the deer when other places I hunt need my tags much more. However, yes the deer and hogs frequent the area much better now, in fact every time i hunted this year I had the opportunity to harvest deer every sit, so I consider that a success!
The first 2 photos were from pit blind with deer at 12 yards.

TC pictures, waterer is the lower left of frame with pit blind in background if you look you can see the blind windows are open with deer pictures and closed with the hogs, hogs never show when I'm hunting.

What kind of pipe material did you run from the tote to the trough? Surely not PVC? Seems like that would be a PITA.

Polypipe was the initial install, BUT beware if your in gopher country they will chew into small diameter poly like .75" black poly PVC is your best best.
Thanks everybody,

Thank you. And thank you for the tip about gophers. I guess I would be using PVC at our place because those heathens are everywhere.
