Tommy Chauvin is an alligator hunter and the stepson of Joe LaFont as well as his hunting partner. Although Joe is not his biological father, Tommy treats Joe as if he was. During Season 2, Joe and Tommy had a blowing out, and the duo hunted out of separate boats. They reconciled after a few days. During Season 3, Tommy has been forced to hunt single-handedly for a while, due to Joe's back problems.
