Alligator hunters in the Atchafalaya Basin, Louisiana, risk life and limb to earn their keep in the gruelling 30-day hunting season.
New episodes Saturdays at 7.30pm on DUKE. Or stream season 4 on TVNZ OnDemand.
With the first day of gator season under way, swampers are under attack from some of the biggest and meanest gators in years.
With competition on the swamp greater than ever, hunters must venture into uncharted and dangerous areas in order to get a strong start.
The hunters remember the struggles, joys and the dangers they've faced over the years fishing alligators.
One hunting team uses a helicopter to pick out hunting spots for the season while two hunters go on a road trip to catch a menacing gator.
Several teams find that thieves have stolen gators off their lines, one team accidentally crosses a property line, and another forfeits a prime hunting spot.
Unexpected adversity forces swampers to change their tactics. One hunter must get used to his new quirky deckhand, while another team hunts for a rogue gator that's been attacking livestock.
With the seasonal pressure increasing, emotional and physical injuries put the hunter's seasons at risk. One hunter is forced to hunt alone after his deckhand falls deathly ill.
The younger swampers take things too far in an effort to prove themselves, tensions between one team leads to a terrible accident and one hunter defies his father's wishes in making a new treble hook.
Hunters drop everything in order to deal with life threatening gators and unexpected setbacks. One team sacrifices their day to go after a gator that is terrorising kids at a local camp.
Swampers push the limits of their property lines in order to salvage their day. One team accidently crosses boundaries with an angry landowner.
