The fourth quarter of Superbowl XLVI may or may not go down in history for its great football, but it will live forever in the memories of everyone who has ever dreamed of riding in RJ and J Paul Molinere’s airboat, having a cold beer with the Guist Brothers, or hearing Troy Landry yell “choot ‘em” in their ear. Because this isn’t just the year of Superbowl XLVI, this is Swamperbowl I! Here’s the “This is Your Boss” video — our first glimpse of Swamp People Season 3.

When Troy Landry goes out to hunt alligators, he almost always has his son Jacob at his side. This year, he’ll have a son on both sides because his youngest, Chase, has joined the crew for Swamp People Season 3! What happened to Liz Cavalier, and which Landry will be Troy’s new “chooter?” How will Chase change things on the Landry crew? Keep reading!
Blake McDonald and Austyn Yoches are the newest alligator hunters to join the cast of Swamp People, and they represent yet another way 21st century Louisianans have figured out how to get back to their bayou roots. Keep reading for a bit of background info on the siblings as well as some swamptrulescent images of the “lil Guist brothers.”
I think the Guist brothers of Swamp People have some competition as Florida teenager Tim Stroh reeled in an 800lb 12′ behemoth alligator with… His bass fishing rod! See photos of Tim with his catch of a lifetime and see a video report filed by an area news station.
This is what I like to call going “next level” reality show reporting. Folks out there can’t seem to get enough of Swamp People and it almost always comes down to how darn genuine the cast members are and how real they come across. Well if you love you some Swamp People, especially the realism of it, then you’re going to be singing, “laissez les bons temps rouler” when you see the following clip of father and son gator hunters RJ and Jay Paul Molinere on local HTV 10′s “Bayou Time.” Man I love me some RJ!
If you’re a big fan of The History Channel’s blockbuster reality series Swamp People then you’ve probably heard the alligator hunters referencing a “quarter-sized kill spot” on the top of a gator’s head, which is where you have to shoot it to guarantee a quick kill. And, if you’re like me, then you’ve probably wondered where that “kill spot” is. (Who knows, we just might bump into a gator on our way to work next week, right?) Keep reading for illustrations that should help clarify so you can
become a real deal alligator killer seem even more manly while talking around the water cooler at the office.
The History Channel has an absolute smash hit on their hands in the form of Swamp People. Fans of the show are borderline obsessed with these Louisiana swampers like Troy Landry, Terral Evans, Liz Cavalier and of course the Guist Brothers. Well the obsession is only going to spread I’m guessing because there’s an upcoming official casting call for tried and true alligator hunters! Find out when, where and how you can load it up, choot ‘em and become an official swamp star.
When Swamp People‘s Troy Landry isn’t wrestling a 500lb alligator into his boat he spends some of his time trying to round up a different breed of 500lb monsters – cypress logs! Keep reading to let the “King of the Swamp” take you on a narrated swamp tour as he searches for ancient cypress logs left behind by cypress sawmills abandoned ages ago. (Even if you don’t like swamps, alligators or wood, I promise you the clip is worth it just to listen to Troy talk – his Cajun charm puts Paul Prudhomme to shame!)
All of the Swamp People have interesting and distinctive angles on wrestling a life and a living out of the swamp; but, Terral Evans stands out in the crowd. Instead of looking for that quarter-sized kill spot on the back of an alligator’s head, Terral grabs the gators live and pulls them into the boat with him for relocation. Live alligators. In the boat. With him. And, that’s not all he can do.
Troy Landry may be King of the Swamp, but he isn’t the only royalty running alligator lines in the bayous around Pierre Part. In fact, he’s not even the only Swamp royal in his own boat! Rounding out Landry’s crew this season and handling most of the “chooting” is the Gator Queen herself, Liz Cavalier. Keep reading for Elizabeth’s amazing story that includes gator hunting trips before she was even off the bottle and the surprising truth about how she teamed up with Troy!
