Re: Duck Dynasty

Anyway ... not being a duck hunter or duck-call afficianado, what is so unique about these guys' duck calls that they can make millions from them? I get a duck-call or two every year from the Ducks Unlimited booth at a local fishing show & it just doesn't seem that complicated a product to produce.

Sapper? This might be one for the Outdoors group, eh?

All duck calls are not created equally. My brother used to call at competitions (sigh)... DuckCommander is all he would blow. It's all about the reed or reeds and how well the call holds up to moisture through a hunt.

I suppose to us they all sound relatively close, to Ducks the DuckCommander is the Pavorotti, everything else is Bieber.


I did not realize the chatter about Bradshaw playing second fiddle to Phil was true.


His patent is a call that duplicates the Mallard Drake.

Re: Duck Dynasty

Phil reinvented the way duck calls are made. He made the first double reed duck call. Unless you are a hunter, it's hard to explain why/what he did, was so great. Just know, that in the duck hunting world; Phil is a living legend.

As far as the show goes:

If you don't live in LA and want to see coonasses, watch Swamp People.

If you want to see a good wholesome show; no cussing, no nudity, no vulgery; then DD is a good show.

I read the "Non-Coonass" post. Not everyone in LA speaks French or with a cajun accent. As was stated in that post; they are "Rednecks" and the Robertson, will tell you that. (I did not give them that "label", they call themselves that. I say that so "someone" won't call be a "Borderlined bigot")

Me and my family enjoy the show.
With all the, "Teen Mom", keeping up with Kardashians, Honey Boo Boo (The all time dumbest show in TV history), Housewives of where ever; It's good to see a family values show.

Yes, VERY true. Ole' Punkinhead Bradshaw, himself, has said the greatest thing ever to happen to him was the day Phil Robertson chose ducks over football.

If history had gone different, we would be looking a Phil on FOX Sunday NFL.

Phil can play some ball.

Re: Duck Dynasty

Another thing that doesn't seem to come up is Phil's Duck Commander hunting videos. He had a pretty big fan base for his Duck Vids...
