Yesterday we watched the 5th episode of Swamp People, called “Feast or Fawn” and since we haven’t done an update on the $10,000 bounty in two weeks, we thought we’d do one today.
After the 5th episode, Junior Edwards is still in the lead to get the $10,000 bounty. These were the entries made over the two episodes:
Joe and Tommy: 10′ even
Liz & husband – 10′ 2″
Jacob & Chase – 11′ 2″
Troy & “Holdy” – 11′ 4″
A lot of the entries were close to the biggest, but not quite. Junior’s first entry, 11′ 6.5″, still beats all of the other entries. Anyway, we thought we’d mention just two things from the episode. First of all, the water in the swamp was high, so a lot of people were going to remote areas to find gators.
Bruce, with his new gun, missed once, so after that, to make sure the alligator was dead, he shot them twice thus earning the name “Bruce 2Pop Mitchell” from Ron. Their boat eventually had a lot of gators in it and it was weighed down, so they wound up making a “Swamp Cooler” which just means they put the dead gators in a pool of water near the bank, in a shaded area, and covered them until they were ready to retrieve them later in the day. That worked real well for them.
