What can you tell us about Troy Landry and his family on the History Channel’s Swamp People? My husband and I get a kick out of them.
—Diane Parma, West, Texas

Alligator hunter Landry, 50, and his wife, Bernita, live in Pierre Part, La. Married for 30 years, they have three adult sons and two granddaughters. When not going after gators, Troy, his sons and his friend, Clint Landry (no relation), catch, sell and distribute crawfish. “Alligator hunting is just like hunting deer or anything else—you just gotta know the terrain real good,” says Landry, whose “Shoot ’em!” has become a catchphrase on the show.
