Joey Edgar Biography: Age and Family
Edgar was born on 8th August 1969, and he is 53 years at present. He was raised in a family of gator hunters in Northern Louisiana. His parents are Daniel Edgar (father) and Juanita Broussard (mother). Joey lost his mother in 2018.
His father is a legendary gator hunter, trapper, and fisherman who established a fishing empire. So, learning from the legend himself, there is no doubt that Joey is any less of a hunter than his dad.
Joey has been hunting and fishing since he was barely a teenager. And now, his exceptional skills have allowed him to feature on the History Channel’s reality show, “Swamp People.”
On the show, we can see Joey teaming up with his father and siblings from the beginning. Moreover, he is mainly occupied with the show during the gator hunting season, but when not on the show, he looks after the family’s fishing business, “St. Mary’s Seafood Incorporated.”
Similarly, he has also been working hard to pass down his family’s hunting legacy to his children.
