Do poachers go after alligators for their skin?

    Primarily, yes, the incentive to sell alligator hides is the driving force behind most illegal alligator hunting. However, many licenced alligator hunters also make a living selling hides.  (The television show Swamp People comes to mind.)  Hunting seasons and regulations are not federally enforced, and thus vary on a state-by-state basis.  So what is considered illegal in one state may be permitted with a license in another.

    It should also be noted that alligator meat is also an exotic meat which generally reaches a high price, for poachers and hunters alike.
