'Swamp People' stars visit Henderson

Posted March 27, 2012

Fans of the popular History Channel show "Swamp People" might want to make it to the Vanco Outdoor Equipment store in Henderson on Friday or Saturday to see a gator hunter up close. 

Lifelong swamper Bruce Mitchell and his dog, Tyler, will be on hand to meet fans from noon - 4 p.m. each day. (And yes, Tyler hunts gators too!)

The store is located at 296 U.S. Highway158 bypass. 

Anyone else a fan of this show? 

"Swamp People" is about south Louisiana alligator hunters trying to make a living while trolling the swamps. 

Being from south Louisiana, I like to watch it because it reminds me of home! Troy is my favorite.

    Being a Louisiana Cajun myself, I do like the show. One day over the holidays I was watching it with my Dad, who sounds exactly like Troy Landry when he talks, and Dad suddenly asked out loud “Why do they have dem subtitles when that man is talking?”
