There will be a casting call for The History Channel's program "Swamp People" on August 4th at Bootleggers on Jefferson Street.

If you live in the 'swamp',  have a legitimate Louisiana Alligator Hunter License and at least 50 Alligator Harvest Tags, you are eligible!  Bring your mom 'n 'em.

If you can't make the August 4th/Lafayette casting call, not all hope is lost... put on an alligator costume and wait in the swamp for the "Swamp People" to come by and set up the lines...  grab a bait and smile for the camera!!  (If that doesn't seem 'practical' to you, you might be too intelligent to be on the show!  Hahaha!  I crack myself up.  I am just kidding.  Really, Troy, don't come after me...)

If you DO make it onto the show and you happen to catch THIS alligator:


DON'T CHOOT 'EM!!  Dat's Gaston!!
