Copy and Paste from History Channel from Episode Rising Waters:
Tropical Storm Lee is finally making landfall and it’s wrecking havoc, threatening to shut down alligator season altogether. With the season in jeopardy, Troy still has over 300 tags left to be filled. To make matters worse, he’s facing the treacherous conditions short handed. His son Chase is sidelined with an injury. Bruce and his shooter Ron are also braving the storm. But water levels have risen drastically, completely blanketing their boat launch. Bruce will drive the rising water like a highway, powering into a section of the swamp that’s normally unreachable. Joe and his stepson Tommy head out across a lake to run their lines as fast as possible. But soon, the boys find themselves in the worst possible position: in the thick of Lee, in choppy water with lightning closing in. While the veterans push through the worst of the storm, rookies Austyn and Blake are close on their heels. The boys have a handful of tags from their buyer–and once again, their season is on the line.
Copy and Paste from History Channel from Episode Something this Way Wicked Comes:
It’s been the best start to alligator season in a decade, and every record has been shattered. Now, the biggest storm since Hurricane Katrina is headed straight for the swamp. Forecasters predict it will make landfall by day’s end so hunters across the bayou are using every second they’ve got to fill as many tags as they can. After days on the sideline with a wrenched back, Joe LaFont can’t stay away any longer. He and his stepson Tommy are reunited on a mission to stay ahead of the storm. Troy Landry is once again running a two-boat operation. Troy wants to catch as many gators as possible before the storm makes landfall–so he’s dividing to conquer multiple territories at once. Over in Pecan Island, Liz and her helper Kristi are also looking to use a two-pronged strategy: running lines and sharp shooting in open water. Rookies Austyn and Blake have five more tags from their buyer. If they fail to fill their tags before the storm arrives, their season could be over.
Stuff Troy Says from History Channel (made me chuckle, as always):
Copy from History Channel:
As the end of week one comes to a close hunters are faced with new challenges. Troy makes a shocking discovery, a monster gator is feeding dangerously close to his home. To protect his family, he and his boys set out to do battle with the monster in a tiny boat and come face-to-face with disaster. R.J. and his son Jay Paul summon the powers of their ancestors in an ancient tribal ceremony to prepare for battle with a beast known as Big Foot. Liz and Kristie encounter something rarely seen on the swamp; a gator so bold, that he takes the bait in broad daylight right in front of them. When they attempt to haul the beast in, he breaks off the line and the battle is on! The Guist brothers find themselves in need of lumber, but they don’t head to the home improvement store. Instead, they turn to the swamp, and an age-old technique of harvesting lumber as they go in search of sinker cypress.
Clip from Huffington Post:
On “Swamp People” (Thu., 9 p.m. EST on History) Cajun alligator hunters Liz Cavalier andKristi Broussard came across what they thought was a dead alligator floating in the water.
However, as Liz started to haul it onto their boat, the 700-lb monster suddenly came back to life. As it used its tail to thrash around, Liz struggled to hold onto it, and Kristi warned that it could jump into the boat.
Finally, after Liz had shot the alligator, the women dragged it onto the boat and got another nasty shock.
One of the gator’s legs had been bitten off by another — presumably even bigger — alligator. “He ripped his whole damn leg off!”
Both women are shaken up by this experience but clearly lived to tell the tale…or tail
