... I've had calls from at least half a dozen production companies. They don't stay on my phone when they start asking do you deal with bears or alligators...
My Wife's brother-in-law has a commercial gator fishing license from the Great State of Louisanna. He figures that is how they got his name. A Holly Weird production company called about two years ago and asked him about appearing on "Swamp People" but they didn't stay on the phone long after he answered "Yes," to the question, "Do you still have all your teeth?"
So if you beeks want your 15 minutes of fame, say NO if 'William' the Varmint Concorer asks you the same question.
BlueBee, the best way to catch a pickup bed of soup turtles is to fashion you some topless wire baskets out of welded wire, using "J" hooks or hog ringers to hold the parts together. Then nail these wire baskets onto the sides of partally submerged logs or stumps. Snapper turtles haul out of the water onto the dry portion of the log to sun. When you come running up in your outboard boat it startles them and they bail out on both sides of the log and right into the wire baskets where they can be scooped up with a dip net like shooting fish in a barrel.
