The hunting season lasts for only 30 days as laid out by the wildlife law. The ‘Swamp People’s’ producers allocate every competing team a number of tags which they attach to their everyday kill. Once the tags are out, then the season is over for that team. The ‘Swamp People’ castors have in recent years been facing the loss of fellow cast members. Let’s see who the cast have lost.

The road crash took away a young Randy at just the age of 35 years. Local police reports said that the car crashed into a utility pole on highway 75, south of 3066. They said that the car was a Chevrolet which the driver was unable to take a left hand turning, serving it to the right-hand side hitting a pole. He is said to have died from being thrown out of the car as it rolled from the impact.
This was a case of not putting on a seat belt as it was reported that he was found a distance from his car after the accident. It was a sad day both for the Edwards family, fellow cast members and the fans of ‘swamp people.’ The brother to Randy, Ronnie Edwards, confirmed the death through a Facebook post.
