Troy Landry Net Worth $1 million
The documentary drama series named Swamp People premiered in 2010 and attracted a TV audience of more than 3.1 million. This show has subsequently become regarded as one of the most watchable on the History Channel, and regularly sets ratings record for the Channel. The main subject of the series is Troy Landry along with three generations of his family, and other colleagues who are involved in hunting alligators. What began as something of a hobby for Troy Landry has now become the basis for a considerable business, including spin-offs of various types of merchandise marketed by Troy Landry under the trademark of his own coined phrase, “Choot ’em”, a phrase which is also now synonimous with the Swamp People program.
The whole series is fascinating because there is only a legal 30-day hunting season of alligators, to ensure that they are not over hunted, so those engaged in what has become an industry have to catch and/or kill enough alligators throughout the month-long hunting season to support their families for a whole year. Added to that, the competition is quite fierce so all have to step up their game. Troy Landry was once fortunate enough to catch 82 alligators in a day, however a normal average is 30-40 ‘gators. Since the groups that participate in hunting alligators have been doing this for quite some time, the techniques used have been passed down for generations already. The show has made stars out of those hunters featured in the program, which is unsurprising considering that hunting alligators is at least an extreme hobby which few people engage in, but also because Troy Landry has managed to build a substantial business and accumulate a large amount of net worth from this hunting OF what are regarded as dangerous reptiles which actually survive in large numbers on the mainland of the USA.
So apart from actually hunting alligators, such popularity and wealth reveals Troy Landry to be a successful businessman, too.
For the record, other Swamp People cast members include Brandon Hotard – Landry, Guy Landry, Holden Landry, Marie Lacoste, Liz Cavallier, Jessica Cavallier, and Glenn Guist among many others. Of significance also is that Swamp People has reached international peaks since it has been broadcast on TV in Australia, Canada, Croatia, Finland, France, India, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, United Kingdom and Germany.
In his personal life, Troy Landry is married to Bernita, and their three sons are Brandon, Jacob and Chase.
