The Swamper’s Guide To Hunting

Whether it’s for boar, nutria, or gator… swampers have their own rules. The Swamp People know ‘em—now it’s your turn. Join other fans at Swamp Nation, and tune in to new episodes of Swamp People Thursdays at 9/8c on HISTORY.

1. Only fools start here.

2. Swamps? That’s more like it.

The smell of moss keeps you sharp.

3. Don’t bother with reading. (Gators don’t care.)

4. Don’t bother with camo. (Gators care even less)

5. Unless it makes you look darn good.

6. Always bring your buddy.

Fun fact: dogs can smell fear and gators.

7. Don’t get distracted by cute baby gators.

9. Stop instagramming! No!

10. ‘Cause these suckers mean business.

11. Just show ‘em you mean business.

Guns that shoot or guns that flex? Yes.

12. Aim like a boss.

Fact: there is no other way to aim.

13. And… CHOOT ‘EM!

(one-handed if you can)

14. Prove that you’ve choot’d ‘em.

15. Take the facebook pic.

16. Now go stuff your food hole.

Using your prized kill, of course.

17. And get back to gettin’ gators.
