I have only been to the Goodwin parts of this place.
If you look at the map ( http://www.myfwc.com/media/1526575/Good
... admoor.pdf) there are 2 different sections. The lower end is the Goodwin. Anything below L-104 (sections 1-10) are all "walker" spots. They have a trailer that will take you along the center road and drop you off at each of the sections and you walk in. They come back at 9 and 11 to pick you back up. Sections 11-22 you can only get to by boat (mud motor a must). This is the confusing part, you got to know where you are or you will end up in someone else section. Either way one permit allows you and 3 other (total of 4), they open the gates at 0400 and you have to be checked in by 0430. Then they go down the list and you pick what sections you want to hunt, not all the sections are open every time. If you go without a permit you go to a different line when you arrive and they give you a number and you sign in with that #, after all the permits are in they go down the non permit list. You may or may not get a spot, but like i said i have never been turned away (DO NOT try to go without
a permit on the first or last weekend!!) GOOD LUCK!
BTW they have killed it all down there, this will give you an ideahttp://www.myfwc.com/media/1499274/duck ... t_data.pdf
