The Legend of Shelby the Swamp Man

Shelby Stanga is the breakout star of Ax Men, but there's more to Shelby than swamp logging. He's a guy who almost never leaves the Atchafalaya Swamp and lives life in his own unique way. Nothing is too dangerous or bizarre for Shelby and going about his daily business regularly produces hilarious consequences.

However, the real world is catching up with our Shelby as he’s faced with one of the toughest challenges of his life. Hurricane Isaac has flooded his houseboat, and he now has nowhere to live. With the help of a boat broker, Shelby must leave the swamp and enter the real world, confronting new experiences that push him well past his comfort level in search of his perfect houseboat. With great risk comes great reward, though, and Shelby manages to find his dream home. The only problem is that it’s way over his budget, and now he’s got a mortgage looming.

To keep the bill collectors at bay, Shelby embarks on one odd job after another. From working at a gator farm to clearing swamp rats from a house and from deep-sea fishing to hog hunting, Shelby will do it all but always on his own terms.
