"Pickle hails from a long line of gator wranglers. Her great granddaddy was one of the original alligator hunters in St. Bernard Parish," her bio reads.

It is co-owned by Wheat's parents, and her brother is also said to be involved in the business, which specializes in making duck and turkey calls.
