No one can easily doubt the thrill and excitement brought about by the reality series Swamp People. However, some people would still try to question the reliability of the show when it comes to alligator hunting. Here are some quick facts about the series Swamp People.
Basically, the alligator hunting season begins with the first Wednesday of the month of September and the season takes place for thirty days. The series Swamp People shoots the film during the season as well. The alligator hunting season is strictly facilitated by the Wildlife and Fisheries’ Department of Louisiana which does not allow unlicensed hunters to join in the event. This is an assurance that all hunters featured in the reality series of Swamp People have their hunting licenses approved. Participants in alligator hunting tags must lease a land before they can participate. In other words, Swamp People casts do the same thing in order to participate with hunting tags.
The population of alligators is never an issue because there are approximately 1.5-million alligators in the wild available for alligator hunting. Additional half of a million resides at the farm. This makes Swamp People free from accusations about the crocodile population.
The Department responsible for the alligator hunting season manages both the wildlife and the environment as well; meaning, they monitor the health of the hunting grounds together with the animals living within it. Swamp People History Channel does not break any policy promulgated by the Wildlife and Fisheries’ Department in the state of Louisiana.

The reality series Swamp People is undoubtedly enhancing the industry, commercial, and tourism, the moment they began to air on the History Channel. Alligator hunting is indeed increasing the interests of tourists to experience the life they see on Swamp People History Channel.
According to the locals, the Swamp People series helped them to accumulate revenues, especially, for accommodations such as bed and breakfast establishments. The rooms are always fully-booked whenever the alligator hunting season arrives. With numerous tourists and hunters discovering the swamps, the locals cannot hide their appreciation to the Swamp People series. However, the recent sinkhole in the area is destroying what Swamp People History Channel established. In fact, booked tourists of the alligator hunting season this year began to pull off their reservations because of the risks brought about by the growing sinkhole.
In addition, the property selling begins to fail as well. Previously, appraisals of properties reached hundreds of dollars due to the popularity brought by the reality series Swamp People. Today however, property owners would like to sell their properties 75% lower than what the appraisal suggests. Although the importance of alligator hunting adds to their property value, the locals would still like to guarantee their safety without losing anything. Swamp People managed to promote the area as the best place to retire but with such kind of event, it is not surprising to notice many people backing out. Still, as the Swamp People History Channel continues to air, the locals still hope for a better future.

The Swamp People History Channel is now the new target of Dominic Monagham with his fearless tweets on Twitter. According to him, alligator hunting in the show is not beneficial to viewers. In fact, the Swamp People series is a shocking series according to the star of “Lost” series. He argues that Swamp People History Channel should be stopped because crocodiles are also living creatures. “Watching alligator hunting on History channel is disgusting,” the actor tweeted. He also mentioned that Swamp People show must never include smaller alligators because they are not even a threat to human beings.
Similar to the series of Swamp People, Monagham also mentioned the series of Deadliest Catch aired on the Discovery Channel. When asked, he said that unlike the alligator hunting being shown on Swamp People History Channel, the Deadliest Catch does not show how they shoot or kill the animals. In other words, what the actor would like to emphasize is the non-beneficial Swamp People scenes on how they kill the alligators. The actor argues that such scenes should never be shown anymore. It makes the Swamp People series unbearable.
Although the issue revolves around the show on History channel, some people cannot resist the temptation of asking the actor about haters commenting on his disgust to Swamp People. He simply stated that he loves to deal with haters. In fact, he appreciates them more beyond how he dislikes the Swamp People History Channel regarding animal life issues.
