Who is Little Willie?
Little Willie is the one of the youngest alligator hunters on Swamp People.
He is actually called William IV Edwards, but is called Little Willie as a nickname, as he shares the same name as his father.
The Swamp People star was born and raised in a gator hunting family, and is the son of Willie and Sherrie Edwards.
He is the brother of Langdon, and has been learning the rules of alligator hunting, as taught by his father.

Little Willie’s alligator hunting journey
Little Willie is next in line to take over the family business, as the oldest son of veteran swamper Willie Edwards.
The Swamp People star said he hopes his father has passed everything he knows about the swamp onto him.
His father Willie initially enjoyed going out on the swamp alone, until he decided to teach his knowledge to his son.
Although he has only been hunting alligators for a few years, having mastered the catch in last year’s season, it is thought he will keep it up!
