I grew up in Southern Ohio and had relatives from Kentucky. Chuck hole was the term used. I moved to New England and have never heard the term (they use Pot hole) and when I used the term Chuck hole they didn't know what I was talking about. (Kinda like Frappe in New England for a very runny unthick shake.) --Yvette
