Premise: No, not that kind of swamp people. This is not a show based on a B horror film. The ``Swamp People'' featured in this History series are the proud descendants of French Canadian refugees who settled in the swamp region of Louisiana in the 18th century. Cameras follow members of this fiercely independent group as they struggle to preserve their way of life in the Atchafalaya Basin during the most important time of the year for them: alligator-hunting season.
Troy confronts Chase about his obsession with sniping alligators; Joey goes after his white whale; Willie's buyer threatens to close early; Frenchy and Gee try to fill their last tags with big-money beasts.
Willie rushes to tag out before his buyer shuts down for the season at the end of the day; Troy hangs more lines than ever before; the Landrys race against sundown; Daniel's day turns sour; Jay Paul hunts the land next to his house.
