    Just got back to Kentucky after a week down in Louisiana. I missed Coyote hunting but I met up with a guy that most of you will recognize.
    Let me tell you. In Real Life, he is Exactly the person you see on "Swamp People." Most of his footage is unscripted....he just comes out with it on his own. A very nice person.


    He has upgraded his Ride....You can't miss this new truck.


    This is Troy's Dad; he was on a couple episodes of Swamp People. He said: "I had 4 Boys and I like to never got them raised; they about got me down." (I think that's what he talk about Cajun lingo...Man.)


    I don't know if he will be on the next season shows, but Hank Williams Jr. was down there 2 weeks ago hunting Gators with Troy....I bet that would have been something to see.

    The manager of our Service Department at work had to go to a job site down there. He said A guy told him Troy owns a line of hotels down there or something of the like. I'm not sure if it's true or not, and doesn't make me think any less of the man. He comes off as a really great guy on Swamp People.
  4. JR having more fun. Coyotes will be moving in the morning!!

    He wishes he did. He and his dad own "Duffy's Shell" in Pierre Part Louisiana...a gas station and convenience strore. hope he makes a Million dollars on the Swamp People; You should see how much time he spends with his "Young" Fans at a event. The kids love him for it.

    Choot 'em! Glad to hear he is a down to earth sort of guy. But I think I'm kinda partial to 'Lisbeth. :)

    His family owns Landry Seafood Company. Which owns Landrys Seafood House, Joe's Crab Shack, Aquariuam Restaurants, etc... Wealthy, very wealthy. My dad runs into him from time to time at the Walmart where he shops, super nice guy.

    I guess I shouldnt have taken a boat captain from slidell's word for it. Won't be the last time I'm wrong, dont take it personal. He also told me Troy or his family owns a huge crawfish processing plant the processes and ships about 6 million pounds of crawfish every year to Louisiana restaraunts. Maybe the cpt. just meant he provides the chain with all their crawfish and I just misunderstood him. Still a nice go though.

    I was in NO for a few days the year before last and it seemed like every commercial that came on the television set was Troy hocking product or services for somebody. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do but it definitely changed my perspective of him a little bit.
