Series 4. Deep in the heart of Louisiana lies the US’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 known for their flavourful cuisine, distinctive music and vibrant culture.
Series 4 of Swamp People follows the resilient, self-reliant and fiercely independent Cajuns of the Atchafalaya Swamp, who still carry on many of their ancestors’ trades and traditions.
In today’s episode, Troy’s sons try to help him win the bet against the hunters from Texas. Meanwhile, after they run out of bullets, hunters use a tiny pocket knife to stop a gator before it attacks the boat.
