Trapper Joe Lafont is more than just a cajun. He is more than just an alligator hunter. He's an American Icon. A family man at heart who makes his living off the land and the resources and opportunities God has given him, Joe is as wily and sharp as the gators he hunts. Always hospitable and ready to have fun, it's no wonder the spotlight has finally shown his way. Joe lives with his wife Ann and has raised his stepson Tommy in the upstanding way you would expect of a man of this caliber. Joe resides deep in Louisiana down in the middle of the bayous and swamps he hunts in. A true cajun. His story dates back down his family line and is filled with trappers and hunters who have all taught him the Acadian way of life. So for Joe, alligator hunting is not a sport. It's not something he's into to gain fame. It's a way of life. Joe's relationship with his stepson Tommy is more than business, though their busines is definitely an equal partnership. One feeds off the other. One's strength is the other's weakness and family is front and center.
