A problem even if a person waits until late summer or Fall to fill it? I assume your temps are much warmer in VA.

Blue tongue could maybe be a concern.

A kiddie pool from the Dollar General. You can even dig enough to put it close to ground level. Add water or let Mother Nature fill it up.
I know a lot of places that put in the small plastic troughs along the drivable roads or trails and can carry water to fill them up or enough water until Mother Nature can fill them.
All have 1x6ís in them so anything that falls in them can get out. Plus it allows your smaller critters and birds a chance to drink as well.

Wouldn't deer hooves break through a kiddie pool?

Cut some 55 gallon plastic drums in half that have lids and you can make two and dig them in a foot so they won't get tipped over. They can be fllushed out periodically as needed.

Not unless they can sharpen them really sharp, lol. Itís a solid plastic pool. They donít even mind the blue color.

I haven't found a source of plastic drums that are food grade.

I would select a water source that required the least amount of maintenance and the least number of boots on the ground. You could dig or scrape with small backhoe or skid steer and then line the bottom with Sodium Bentonite.
