1- be there early- you have a check in, briefing, then a long boat ride to the island.
2- pack light- you may be walking a ways down a levee to get to your boat/blind
3- headlamp is a big help
4- lightweight walking stick (old ski pole) will keep you from using your shotgun when you get stuck in muck
5- great place, listen to the recommendations of the guys putting you out whether to stay in the blind, or spread out into the impoundment
4- have fun
