Trapper Joe Lafont and Trigger Tommy Chauvin traveled from the deep swamps in Louisiana to Benton on Saturday for the 34th annual Boys & Girls Club of Saline County, Arkansas fundraiser.
The stars of the popular History Channel television reality show “Swamp People” were the honored guests of the “Get Swamped”-themed party.
Lafont and Chauvin were interviewed by Steve “Wildman” Wilson, public affairs coordinator for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and host of the Talkin’ Outdoors television show. Guests then asked numerous questions — from “How many alligators have you killed?” to a little boy asking if he could go gator hunting with the two.
The Louisiana natives were greeted with an Arkansas Razorback “hog call” from the audience.
