Swamp People Season 12 Plot
The first Wednesday of September marks the start of the Alligator season in Louisiana and lasts for a good duration of thirty days. During the alligator season, the hunters carry out the tradition that has been passed down for about 300 years, which is hunting American Alligators present in the swamp. Most of their yearly income is generated during the Alligator season, while the remaining portion of their income is generated by harvesting other species such as fish, shrimps, raccoons, turtles, etc.

The episode will be released on the History channel at 9:00 PM (American/New York Time). Ep 5 can also be streamed by Alligator-heads on History channel’s official website. The episode is titled “Heat Wave”.
What Can We Expect?
The bayou is consumed by an intense record-breaking heatwave, though the tough conditions definitely prove to be a hindrance in the alligator season. This is seen as an opportunity by Ronnie and Ashley who try to take advantage of these intense conditions. Willie and his father employ a divide and conquer policy by separating their boats to finish at a much faster rate. The heat wave’ effect can also be clearly noticed on the baits, to avoid such deterioration Don invented a slow-drip device to keep Jacob’s bait from dying out.
The Hunter’ Target
These Hunters are issued a certain number of tags each, these tags are supposed to be attached to their kills. This helps the hunters to identify and mark their kills more accurately. The target for the hunters during this alligator season is to “tag out” which essentially means that the hunters have to extinguish their tags reserve in the span of these thirty days. This would mean that the hunter has killed a number of alligators equal to the number of tags received.
