Walter “Butch” Guchereau, owner of Cajun country swamp tours grew up on a small Cajun farm located on the banks of the Bayou Teche in Breaux Bridge, the heart of Cajun country, where he still resides today. From early on his father introduced him to the swamps of Cajun Country which he fell in love with. By hunting, sport and commercial fishing and just plain exploring he came to know the swamps like his own backyard. Butch put himself through college by working summers on dredge boats located in Louisiana on the Mississippi and Atchafalaya River systems where he experienced the dynamic forces that have built the land of Acadiana over the last 25,000 years. He learned how the rivers, bayous, wetland areas, man’s interventions and coastal erosion are all intertwined and constantly changing.
The countless enjoyable hours he has spent in the swamplands of Cajun Country coupled with college degrees in Zoology and Botany has given Butch a rich insight into the ecology of Louisiana swamps.
Shawn learned from his dad and has done his own exploring and research, so much so that Butch calls him the "Bayouoligist" Butch believes Shawn has a sixth sense when it comes to finding fishing and hunting places which works very well in his ability to find wildlife on tours.
