    A lot depends on budget and style of hunting and lodging you prefer. I wouldn't hesitate with any of the following.
    Five Oaks
    Slick's
    Buckshot

    They get that family stuff hashed out? I haven't followed it.

    Do you happen to know the rate for 5 oaks. It looks like a nice setup and I’m assuming it’s gonna be in the $700-800/day range.

    I really want to get my dad on a timber duck hunt down there as his health just continues to deteriorate and he’s always wanted to hunt timber.

    I honestly have no idea what it is these days. I assume a bit more than you wrote. Good timber is harder than ever to get access to due to so much which was being used for outfitters just a few years ago now being strictly a membership/ownership deal. There and Slick's are both about as solid as timber gets. Sorry to hear about your dad. If I had some timber I'd tell you to bring him on down, but I'm stuck in fields or public woods, and you can't count on public woods when planning in advance.

    Oh, and get your dad there asap. My father always wanted to hunt Beaver Dam, so I called Mike and set it up in January. Dad died that February.

    I hope you guys got the hunt in.

    My dad died of cancer 16 years ago. I was blessed to have an awesome final duck hunt with him in november, and 3 deep sea fishing trips march-june. he died in July.

    Nope, I'd set it up for the.following year. He couldn't hunt that season due to his wife being in intensive care. She died in late January, so I knew he'd be able to go the next season. Soon thereafter, he was diagnosed with cancer on a Friday and died the following Wednesday.
