It's a Family Thing! Season Premier of Swamp People

What did y'all think of last night premier for Swamp Peoples 3rd season? I for one thought it was fantastic.. If you didn't catch last nights episode you missed one heck of a kick off to the season... Troy Landry brought in his son Brandon to help him out this season since his usual wingman Clint is unable to help him as much he would like because he has to attend to his turtle farm... Although Brandon was a little slow to start and missed his first shot he got the hang of it the second go around and made his daddy proud. It started out with a late start due from Hurricane Isaac. I remember that bad boy! That hurricane cost my own family thousands in damages... Mother nature is no joke! I know that these swampers will overcome even though they had a late start in the season. Elizabeth brought on her daughter Jessica. Chrissy had to take care of her cattle as Isaac resulted in trouble for her but we should see her back with Elizabeth soon enough. Elizabeths daughter Jessica may only be 19 years old, she has the family business in her blood and proved to her mama she has what it takes to be a swamp queen just like her mom. Jay scared the crap out of his daddy by jumping in the water with a gigantic behemoth of a gator. Thankfully he was unhurt and his daddy dubbed him warrior for the day... Fresh meat! Im not talking about the gators either. On Last nights premier we got a sneak peak at the new swampers in our Louisiana Bayou. These boys are Fresh from Texas! "Bigfoot" Hatcher seems to be the one to watch and Im not saying that just because my maiden name is also Hatcher. ;) But with a name like Bigfoot he must bring some entertainment.

Mitchell Guist has passed away

We all know the two crazy brothers well just by that description, the ones who were inseparable and who did some quite odd things on the swamp and off their porch. :) Sadly one of the Guist brothers passed away last month. If you hadn't heard why, just keep reading. Thats the point of this particular post. Mitchell Guist: Death was determined to be of natural causes. On the History cable hit "Swamp People," Cajun hunter Mitchell Guist was often inseparable from his brother Glenn. But when Mitchell died Monday, the two were apart. The 47-year-old Guist was in a boat being towed by a barge on the Intracoastal Waterway in Louisiana, roughly 70 miles west of New Orleans, when he collapsed, Mike Waguespack, the sheriff of Assumption Parish, said in an interview Tuesday. A coworker in a neighboring boat saw what had happened and guided Guist's vessel back to the dock about 100 yards away, where he called 911. "He fell backwards as if he had had a heart attack, stroke or some sort of seizure," Waguespack said of Mitchell Guist's sudden collapse. Guist developed a fan base with his backwoods savvy on History's "Swamp People," about alligator hunters in the Cajun wetlands. Words from the producer: "Right now, we're thinking about him almost every minute," said Brian Catalina, executive producer of "Swamp People." "We've lost a really important part of our family and a treasured friend." "Swamp People" is the popular History Channel TV series that chronicles the lives of alligator hunters. Now in its third season, the series is set in Louisiana's Atchafalaya Swamp, and focuses on Cajun alligator hunters during the 30-day hunting season that the History Channel notes is "crucial to their survival." Guist appeared on the show alongside his brother, Glenn Guist. "The two were inseparable. These guys were born in the same house that they both still lived in, up until yesterday. They were two peas in a pod for sure. Neither had ever married. They were just as brothers as you could be," said Catalina. Mitchell Guist will be missed on the show by all of his avid fans, will be missed by his wife and by his obvious best friend and brother. RIP Mitchell!
