Where is Joe Lafont Now?

September 7, 2023

Joe Lafont is an American alligator hunter who gained fame after appearing in History TV show Swamp People. He and his family live in the wetlands of Louisiana where they trap and kill alligators for a living. He also owns a top-secret alligator bait recipe that he uses to supplement his income. His family is well-known in the swamp region and they are a source of inspiration for many aspiring hunters.

Lafont grew up in the swamp area where he learned to hunt and trap alligators from his father. He is an experienced and skilled alligator hunter who has been in this profession for over 30 years. He and his stepson Tommy Chauvin earn a decent living by killing alligators and selling them. He usually sells female alligators at a price of $15-19 each and makes about $500 each year.

Despite being in the business for so long, Lafont is not very comfortable with the dangers of hunting alligators. He has had to face numerous issues and is quite worried about the safety of himself as well as his team members.

Last month, the pair was nearly killed in a five-car pile up accident on the Arkansas-Louisiana border highway. They were fortunate enough to escape the crash without any major injuries.

This incident came a few months after another cast member of the popular reality show, Mitchell Guist, died in a boating accident. The incident is the latest in a string of troubled events for Lafont and his family.
