Swamp people post

“In the farthest corner of America lies the nation’s largest swamp. A hidden world where nature rules and man fights back. Welcome to the swamp.”

Hi guys.  I found some spare time today, and so I decided to make a post on my second favorite TV show.

The super bowl ad is really underkill.  Like. REALLY. It's like saying the Hunger Games is about future America.  AAHEMM tarpals.
But really.

It's about people who hunt alligators for a living.  You're probably thinking "HEY aren't alligators endangered?"
And here's a quote from yahoo answers
It is perfectly legal to kill alligators, it is very regulated but legal and for good reasons, such as keeping the population of alligators down, they are a big nuisance in Louisiana as it is, it would be much worse if they weren't taken care of. Technically the hunter owns the rights to hunt in the swamps and they have to buy the right to hunt there, they cant just go in any random swamp to bait and shoot an alligator. They can't hunt all year long either, they have 30 days and are allowed only so many tags to hunt, so when either the tags or the 30 days are up that is the end of their season.
They USED to be endangered, but the government started a re-establishment program that worked sooo well, that now alligators are almost over populated and people can safely(from a legal point of view)  hunt alligators. (great use of our tax dollars) Just kidding.  BTW Hunting is never "safe".  I meant that since the season is strictly controlled, the alligators aren't at risk.  Before, people had no regulation and hunted them everyday allyear round.

Visit this link.  A good review of the show. Here's what he says about endangerment.
When I was young, alligators were considered somewhat of an endangered animal and were protected in most places. A lot has changed in that time, as I’ve come to discover firsthand as a resident of Florida these days. Gators sun in my own back yard on occasion, and they’re pretty much everywhere. In Louisiana, the state game folks have been dealing with the rising population of gators by authorizing a limited 30-day hunting season. Not just anyone is permitted to hunt the prehistoric reptiles. They must purchase hunting rights to the areas they will hunt, and they must buy the limited number of tags they can use during that season. Failure to use all of their tags means less at their disposal the next year. But a good hunter can take over 200 gators out of the swamps in that time. Obviously, we’re going to meet some very good gator hunters on this show. 

“The way of life depicted in this program dates back 300 years. Hunting, especially alligator hunting, lies at its core. Some images may be disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.”
And they’re not kidding. Gator hunting is a bloody business, and this show gets you right up close and in the action. The hunters set hooks with bait, and once a gator is hooked they must reel them in and shoot them in a very small vulnerable spot in the back of the head. Let me warn you that animals were indeed harmed in the making of this film, and you’re going to witness that harm. If you’re an animal activist, I suggest turning to the Disney Channel for this particular hour. The rest of you will get a front-row seat to a truly thrilling non-stop alligator hunt.

And like, no offense to you Dance Mom lovers, but that show gets really boring at some places. (I was in the same room as Amaranthine during the season marathon)
Swamp people is constant adrenaline pumping action.  :DDDDDDDD
ANd it's really cool too. Here's a list of the hunters.  There's also some female hunters too for you feminists.

My favorite hunter used to be Willie,
but he swears a lot and he and his dad sometimes argue about really unnecessary things.  Also, if you visited that review that I linked to earlier, you can see that the hunter needs to hit a quarter sized kill spot on the back of the gator's head.  Willie and his dad(Junior) keep hitting the wrong place, and the bullet often ricochets into them. :-(

New favorites. R.J and Jay Paul are part of the Houma Indians.  They're really awesome.  Jay Paul can usually make a 1 shot direct hit.  They also shoot alligators in open water.  (meaning that they shoot alligators then retrieve them after.  They don't swear AS MUCH.  And no cheap equipment for this father-son duo.  With their airboat and 17 Caliber Savage sniper rifle, they cooler and are more efficient than most of the other cheap-motor boat ironsight-bolt-action-prehistoric-gun teams. :P  Too bad they haven't appeared recently. For the last 2 episodes at least.
