What Can Swamp People Season 12 be About?
‘Swamp People’ documents a group of alligator trappers during the Louisiana alligator season in various areas of South Louisiana each year. The most famous hunting ground is the huge Atchafalaya Basin Swamp in the Atchafalaya Basin in south-central Louisiana. Season 12 has also been filmed in the Louisiana swamps, and it embraces the same premise. Its central focus is on the delicate, complex combination of swamps, wetlands, bayous, marshes, estuaries, and river delta area in South Louisiana. This is where the Atchafalaya River and the Gulf of Mexico converge.
The area is often referred to as America’s Wetland and serves as the hotspot for alligator hunters, who navigate the waters in a variety of motorboats, airboats, and pirogues. Louisiana is segmented into the east and west alligator hunting zones. The east zone is open for the hunting season from the last Wednesday of August each year, while the west zone opens the first Wednesday in September every year. Each zone stays open for a span of two months following the opening date. Several seasons of ‘Swamp People’ are filmed in and around South Lousiana in the areas including Bayou Sorrel, Bayou Pigeon, Pierre part, Morgan City, Houma, Pecan Island, and Conway Bayou, among others.
