        (Texas for Pond) ROTFLMAO!!!!
        Got a good friend who labeled any farm pond a "bass pool"!
        Never asked why, I suppose it's where he fished for bass as a kid!
        I've used the term "tank" often.
        Actually, I think they would classify better as a "farm pond"! Once they reach more than an acre or so in size, I guess you could then call them a "lake"?
        (farm lake!?) LOL!
        Just tickled my funny bone! Thanks for the laugh!

              Okay Jsegel.
              Rugged ground. Lots of limestone, live oaks, gullys, smallish (an acre or so) scattered openings? Kinda hilly?

              I'd work around those little openings.
              I'd either plant food plots or run feeders.
              With an area as small as 100 acres, you're going to have singular areas.
              Basically, you're going to have a bedding area. Or maybe a feeding area. But then it may just be a "travel route".
              With a small-ish spot like that, if there isn't a natural "draw", you're going to have to create a "draw". Food plot, bedding, water, etc.
              I would start with a feeder in one of those secluded little openings. Try to findone that already sshows use by deer.
              Set the feeder in the center. Place a low stand (not over 10 to 14 feet high) on the south side if the opening tucked up in one of those live oaks. A pop-up, set back into a cedar also would work.
              The feeder shouldn't run over 2 to 3 seconds. You don't want to "fatten" the deer, you just want them to amble by for a snack. My feeders only run for 1 second.

                That is too bad, because I see mandatory vaccinations on the horizon.
                Roll up your sleeve and shut up.
