Based on my personal experience, Bay Prairie gets the vote.

Wonder how much it will cost to fly my buddy's airboat over?

I've leased property on the prairie since 1986, three times from "the guide above" ('97, '01. '02), and two of those times were enough to warrant giving my money to someone else. He puts his paying customers on the X and the people leasing get the short straw gamble of perhaps having water perhaps not. After my last no water second split hunt on his property, I got invited by Halliburton to go on a guided hunt with "the man himself" on a property just down the road ... guess what ... flooded timber, flooded prairie, birds coming off roost like quail 100 at a time, and guides bragging about having the water the paid lease members next door were supposed to have.
What would your opinion be in that circumstance? Maybe he's changed, but he's not "Mom and Pop" ...
As far as productiveness is concerned, if you've been on the prairie for as long as you say; surely you've noticed that 75% of the rice is now subdivisions. YES you can still have productive hunts ... but they're NOTHING like they used to be in terms of quality.
