Season 8 / Episode 12 and airs on 28 April 2017 01:00
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 Landry finds himself going up against Mother Nature; the water in the basin is higher than it's ever been, and a cold front has moved into Louisiana; King discovers more bad news.
Following his worst start to alligator season ever, a desperate Troy does the unthinkable; over in Hammond, Ron is hopeful that his puppy Gunner is going follow in the footsteps of Bruce's dog Tyler and become their new gator dog.
The King of the Swamp is intent on filling his 500-plus tags this year; armed with the help of a fellow swamper, he takes on the high water and cold weather; Frenchy Crochet and Gee Singleton's best laid plans literally blow up in their face.
Despite help from The Edgar family, The King of the Swamp, Troy Landry is still behind on his tag count. The Edgars have headed home and now Troy must dig deep to rally his troops if he hopes to tag out this season. Back on their home turf, Daniel, Joey and Dorian Edgar are ready to fill their boats with gators but unforeseen forces complicate their mission. And Glenn Guist is always right at home in the swamp, putting food on the table in surprising and "Guisty" ways.
When Daniel Edgar's boys show up late and hung-over, the party quickly comes to an end. Troy does battle with a poacher, as Willie risks it all to get the biggest gator he's ever hooked. Over in Hammond, Ron pushes to get the puppy a second chance with Bruce.
Troy uses an old family secret to change his luck. R.J. and Jay Paul square off with the Edgar family as they hunt the same territory, and Glen Guist practices "Swamp Medicine" and pays tribute to his brother, Mitch.
Troy helps someone out with his lines; Jacob's brother, Chase, doen't show up, putting the Landrys behind; Ron's puppy, Gunnar, finally gets his chance to prove himself; Dorien faces his biggest challenge yet.
Troy and Guy hurry to fill tags as the end of the season looms near; Jacob and Chase have a surprise encounter fishing in their backyard; the Edgars hit a cold streak as their lines come up empty.
The Landry's race to tag out on the last day of the season, but they've got company, as R.J. and Jay Paul invade their territory looking to tag out themselves. And the Edgars attempt to catch their last haul of gators...with a little help from their friends.
