Watering tank / trough question(s)

I saw some videos discussing setting up a tank. My main question is will deer be spooked by a above-ground stock tank? It's mobile (if needed). You can drain it if needed. I just don't know if I should go the route of a dug-in kiddie pool, stock tank, etc. Thanks in advance!

p.s. The application if just a ridge-top stop while feeding.

If you put in a stock tank you are supposed to bury them at least part of way.

You can trench a line with a in line valve and box if draining is a concern.

I wouldn’t bother but that is just me.

If you want a ridge top stop make a mock scrape, licking branch or go big and spend $6 on a trace mineral block from Rural King, Tractor Supply.
