Deer get 80% of their water needs from the plants they eat. But at times like these--very hot drought conditions--deer will absolutely seek out free-standing water.

I have bathtubs in the middle of my plots and they go there first. Then eat out of the plot.

I had a trail camera up on a decent size water hole (puddle) and got 19 pics in just 1 night. They drank all of it in just 2 days I've moved the camera to a pond now to try and get pics of older deer that I know are still alive but would not visit bait sights we previously had out.

I just got back from the farm sitting in a tree stand videoing some deer going straight to the bath tubs for water then to the salt lick with comeredeer poured on it.
