It's a long holiday weekend, so Silverstein's family duck camp, Snake Island Hunt Club, headquartered in an old country church 15 miles west of Stuttgart, is packed. Silverstein's son, Will, is here with his two young boys, H.T. and Jemison. There's a son-in-law, Jimmy, and three of his kids: Alex, in school in South Carolina; Jimbo, a regional director for Ducks Unlimited; and 9-year-old Jack. Jack has Down syndrome, and the way the extended family folds itself around him—rising early to get him into his waders, taking him to the timber, helping him into the pits—is a defining motif of the club. Later this afternoon, wives, daughters, and other grandchildren will show up at camp. For Silverstein, duck hunting is family time.
