This season, Troy has been hunting without his longtime helper Clint, and the boys have struggled, falling behind last year's pace. Determined to get back on track, Troy enlists the help of a local sharpshooter... a lady gator hunter named Liz Cavalier. Renegade Gator Hunter Bruce Mitchell hunts alone... that is if you don't count his partner/dog Tyler. Bruce and Tyler began the season solidly, racking up the gators and filling tags. It's business as usual - until, Tyler suddenly goes missing. For Joe and Tommy, the season was off to a strong start... but then, Tommy's behavior disrupted their momentum. Now, a monster gator is popping their lines, and the boys are determined to get him. As the sun sets, Terral and Trapper Agent Corey Hunt are on the trail of a large gator that's been menacing the locals. The boys scour the area to relocate the gator, and to rid the threat... before some one gets hurt.
Deep in the heart of Louisiana lies America's largest swamp - a million miles of inhospitable bayous, marshes and wetlands where nature rules and humans struggle to tame it. Many of its inhabitants are the hardened descendants of French refugees who were forced out of Canada in the 18th century and settled in this harsh yet majestic environment. Today, these people are known as the Cajuns, a group renowned throughout the world for their flavorful cuisine, distinctive music and vibrant culture. Resilient, self-reliant and fiercely independent, the Cajuns of the Atchafalaya Swamp still carry on many of their ancestors' trades and traditions.
HISTORY follows these swampers through a time of year that is crucial to their survival: the 30-day alligator hunting season. At its core, this is a uniquely American story of a proud and skillful people fighting to maintain an ancient way of life in a rapidly modernizing world, despite the many perils and trials that stand in their way.
