TG, here in Ohio we refered to duck holes as small depressions that hold enough water to attract waterfowl. Sometimes they are man made and planted with stuff to attract ducks and geese when flooded as delbert was indicating. Others might be a secluded open pond area within a marsh.

Ducks like to hang out there and get shot at

We are deep into the severe drought in NE Arkansas
We all got together last weekend and put a 2" pump in the ditch to water the newly seeded millet food plot. we all felt like fireman the pressure was crazy good !!!
I'm making a high flow sprinkler head for next weekends watering,it will be interesting to see if we can sit back and enjoy the show .
i will get some pics up next weekend with the green up
