Lodging is on your own. Guide can recommend several places to stay, including Air BNB, depending on which public access location we are hunting from. Guests can choose to be picked up or to meet at public access location.
These hunts are typically pretty stationary, so be prepared to sit. Carrying / setting up decoys can be physical for some. Could require getting in and out of boat or canoe, possibly multiple times, and there is always the possibility of thick mud. Guide will do as much of the set up / clean up as possible, however, sometimes walking through thick mud cannot be avoided.
