Excerpt:

Some visitors dressed the part in camouflage and merchandise from TV shows “Bone Collector” and “Swamp People,” as both shows had a presence at the expo.

CEO and founder of Buckmasters Jackie Bushman said he and the cast of “Swamp People,” represented over the weekend by Troy, Jacob and Chase Landry, were fans of each other’s work. Troy and Jacob Landry also appeared at last year’s expo.

“They wanted to come back, and they are a big hit,” Bushman said.

The men helped bring what Bushman referred to as a “nonstop crowd” through the weekend.

While the absence of the patriarch of the Hinton family around the campfire at Sedgefields Plantation was truly felt, the 19th annual Buckmasters Life Classic Hunt was a celebration of the legacy of Jimmy Hinton Sr.

“This past December, we lost the chairman of the board at Sedgefields Plantation,” said Jackie Bushman, Buckmasters’ founder and CEO. “Mr. Jimmy passed away at 88 years old. He went quail hunting before he passed away. Mr. Jimmy left this world as a great husband, a great father, a great grandfather, and one of the great outdoorsmen we’ve had in Alabama. We’re going to miss him.”

The Buckmasters Life Classic Hunt plays host to a group of disabled and seriously ill hunters from around the nation for three days of hunting deer on arguably one of the finest pieces of property in the state.

“The thing I’m going to miss is that Mr. Jimmy would take me around the place, and I’ve seen every big oak he sat down at to call up a turkey,” Bushman said. “Of course, I got the narration, too. I’m going to miss that. He loved this place, and he loved putting on this event. There are not many people in this country that would open up their place, 11,000 acres, for us to do this.

“He did this for 23 years, the last 19 as the Life Classic Hunt. It was a big deal for him. He wanted these kids to get a deer.”

That wish came true for Clay Pearson, who suffered a spinal injury while racing ATVs in Pennsylvania. Pearson missed his first chance at a buck, and his guide ended up losing his shirttail after kangaroo court. However, Pearson scored the next day, bagging a nice eight-point.

“That’s my first deer,” said the teenager from Cullman. “That was awesome.”
Through the use of adaptive equipment and three-and-a-half months of preparation by the Sedgefields staff and a large group of volunteers, the hunt can accommodate any disability.

“This was daddy’s favorite thing to do,” said Jimmy Hinton Jr. of his father, who served 19 years on the Alabama Conservation Advisory Board. “With the family’s blessing, we hope to do this another 25 years. We take people hunting all season long. This, without a doubt, is the most rewarding thing we do. Daddy would always come over and sit by the fire and talk to everybody. He loved this hunt.”

If the deer hunting was not enough, Buckmasters also lined up celebrities to join the hunt, including New York Yankees relief pitcher David Robertson, Bill Busbice of Wildgame Nation and Troy and Jacob Landry, the stars of the hit reality TV show “Swamp People.”

Robertson, the setup pitcher for Yankee legend Mariano Rivera, had a 4-0 record in 2011 with a 1.08 earned run average with 100 strikeouts. The Tuscaloosa native said it was a natural for him to join the Buckmasters hunt.
“I’ve been a big hunter and fisherman all my life,” Robertson said. “I grew up dove hunting and deer hunting and bass fishing. It’s an addiction. Now I’m hooked on archery hunting. Now my wife and I live in St. Petersburg, Fla., so I’ve gotten into the inshore fishing.

“When I was contacted about coming to this, I was tickled to come. It’s a great event that’s put on very well. It’s exciting to see these hunters get a chance to take a nice deer. It’s fun, too, because I get to do a little hunting myself.”

For the father-son team of Troy and Jacob Landry, hunting is a way of life, although they are known for alligator hunting that is the basis of the reality series, which was originally planned for only a documentary.
When the History Channel contacted the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, the agency referred the network to the Landrys. After filming the month-long wild alligator season in Louisiana, the documentary idea was ditched in favor of “Swamp People,” a runaway hit.
“When they went back to New York to put the documentary together, they decided to make a series out of it,” Troy explained.

“When we first started, we thought it was going to be a pain more than anything with the camera crews and everything,” Jacob said. “Then we thought, ‘what the heck; what we got to lose?’ We’re going to be out there catching gators anyway so let’s see what happens. Look at us now.”

Although Jacob remains somewhat subdued, Troy’s TV persona has blossomed into something he never imagined.
“We were watching home movies the other day when Jacob was about 2,” Troy said. “I was holding Jacob and when the camera swung around, I ducked my head behind my cap so they couldn’t see me. It’s a little different now. It’s overwhelming, really. To come from a little bitty community, being in the bayou and swamp all our life and then being in the spotlight. They’re sending us all over the country every week. It’s a big change, like day and night.

“It’s very demanding on you and your family. It’s not for everybody. Some people couldn’t handle it. But I don’t have a problem with it because I know it’s not going to last forever. When I get tired of it, that’s what I think. When it’s over, I’ll just go back to doing what I used to do. I’ll go back to the houseboat where nobody can find us in the middle of the swamp.”

The Landrys hooked up with Buckmasters after the Buckmasters camera crew noticed a Buckmasters sticker on the windshield of Troy’s boat.

“Jackie’s cameramen were watching our show while Jackie was at home watching ‘American Idol,’” said Jacob, who took a nice nine-point during the hunt. “His cameramen had to go back to tell him about the Buckmasters sticker on our boat.”
“That was a long time ago when I put that sticker on there,” said Troy. “We always watched Buckmasters faithfully. We’d watch Wonderful World of Disney and then Buckmasters. I was proud of that Buckmasters sticker. I put it there where everybody could see it. It’s still there today.”

When Bushman got in contact with the Landrys, they were guests on the Jackie Bushman show. After the show, the Landrys invited Bushman to come to Louisiana.

“They invited me to come do a one-day gator hunt, and that was an eye-opening experience,” Bushman said. “Here I am afraid of snakes and I’m going to pull in something that wants to eat me. They were laughing at me. We had so much fun. I told them I wanted them to come up for this hunt. When they heard about it, they wanted to be a part of it. They fit in perfectly, and they haven’t forgotten who they are. Only in America can you be a rock star and shoot alligators on television.”

As for the Life Classic Hunt, Jacob called it a “life-changer,” while Troy said it just re-affirms what he has thought for a long time.

“Long before I came here, in my heart, I knew we didn’t have nothing to complain about,” Troy said. “We should never complain, because you don’t have to look far away to see people less fortunate than we are. This has opened our eyes even more.”

MONTGOMERY, Alabama – Jacob and Troy Landry, the Cajun’ talkin’, gator wrasslin’ father son duo from the The History Channel’s hit show Swamp People had a lot to say about this year’s first alligator hunting season in central Alabama.
In fact, they say that the hunting in Alabama may be even better than what they see in Louisiana. We got the chance to pick their brains about the sport, the danger and what hunters can expect from Alabama alligators while they were in town at the 2011 Buckmasters Expo in downtown Montgomery.

Their advice may be a good thing to take note of if you’re out on the waters, as Alabama hunters have pulled in gators larger than 14 feet long since the inaugural south-central Alabama hunt in Dallas, Wilcox and part of Monroe counties kicked off last weekend.

Turns out, it isn’t as easy as “Monkey see, monkey do” in the gator hunting world. Since the born-on-the-Bayou men’s thick Cajun accents usually require subtitles in the show to understand, here’s what they had to say during our weekend interview.

Christine Kneidinger: Gator hunting is just now getting established in the area, and people have pulled in some pretty massive gators. What do people need to know about hunting these animals, and how can they avoid getting hurt?

Jacob Landry: A lot of people wanna just go out there and hunt gators and they don’t think that it’s dangerous. Anyone can do it, but they need to be careful. Those things can take an arm off of even the pros real quick, so it’s important to make sure you watch your step, not turn your back and be not be careless. When they go out, in Alabama or wherever, they need to make sure that they follow the rules with game laws.

CK: The biggest gator caught in Alabama this season was 14 feet long. You said earlier today that the biggest gator found in Louisiana was 18 feet. How do the opportunities in Alabama compare to those in Louisiana?

Troy Landry: If this is the first season they’ve ever had I think there are even bigger ones than that out there. If I’m not mistaken, this is the first gator season in Alabama. We’ve been fishing forever and it’s hard for us to find a big one like that. That 18 foot gator was caught about 100 years ago, so there is no telling if there are bigger ones and where they are.

CK: On your show, you talk about the mythical “One Eye” monster gator. Tell me a little about this creature and if you think there are others of his kind lurking around Alabama waters.

TL: I’ve never really had an encounter with one eye, but my friends have. He’s kind of like a Sasquach in the swamp. There may be some like that here, but it would be hard to live up to what ol’ “One Eye” has got going for him.

CK: Many people are saying that the sport is catching on in Alabama because of your show, “Swamp People.” People today stood in lines for over two hours to meet you. Did you ever expect the show to become such a phenomenon?

JL: We’re excited that it’s taking off in all these places. Its great that we can touch people and get people together as families to do this together. This is what we’ve been doing all our lives, so no, we didn’t expect this to take off like it did.

CK: Bottom line, what do people need to know about hunting for gators?

JL: You gotta be careful, know where you’re going and take your time. Some days you may not see anything at all, but others you may pull a few big ones in. Being patient is real important too.

There you have it. Advice from the pros. Alabama hunters in the southeast area around Lake Eufaula have until Aug. 28 to, as the Landry’s say, “choot em!” an alligator this season.
