We finally purchased 40 acres mostly wooded but the good news is there is a space for a wildlife/training pond. The pond can be a max of 35 yards by 35 yards. I have been contemplating a few different designs and am looking for some advice from those who have experience with smaller ponds. So I have pond 1 and 2 attached. My thinking is I can do swim by starting at bottom middle and forcing to the point which will be 15 yards away. I'll be able to do some channel work also. I can also de-cheat, angle entries, re-entries with both designs. What do you see as advantages and disadvantages to these designs and the overall scales. Keep in mind I run hunt test so big yardage isn't necessary. Where the pond is placed the longest marks possible will be about 150 yds. Let me know what you think.
