It’s the halfway point of the month-long alligator season, and it’s time to rally. Boat traffic is spoiling one of Troy’s go-to hunting grounds, so he and Clint decide to brave a treacherous swamp guarded by the legendary Gates of Hell. Over in Myrtle Grove, the high water levels that remain after the storm have given Joe and Tommy a rare opportunity.

Molinere…it’s his 50th birthday. In keeping with family tradition, the boys set a lofty goal–to catch one gator for each of RJ’s 50 years. Meanwhile, Willie and Randy are facing some serious pressure from their dad, master hunter Junior Edwards. Junior’s tasked his boys with a quota of six gators…and if they don’t fill it, Junior will stop running their boat.
