Louisiana Gator Hunt with Union Steelworker
Jan 10, 2012
Wayne ‘Kip’ Benoit, a union steelworker (USW Local 750) from Boutte, LA, has spent his life navigating and learning about the swampy lands he calls home. Conserving the land he lives on allows him to apply for permits to hunt the monster gators that live there. Aboard his airboat, he has introduced youth and adults to gator hunting and the outdoors as well as helped with Hurricane Katrina rescue efforts. In this episode, host Tom Ackerman heads to the Louisiana swamps where Kip teaches him how to hunt those big, toothy lizards.
