Duck Dynasty TV Show

March 20, 2012 by staff 

Duck Dynasty TV Show, For Phil Robertson, the ear-splitting squawk of a duck call is the sweet sound of success. A former college quarterback from Monroe, La., Robertson gave up a coaching career for his love of duck hunting when he discovered he could whittle a better duck call than any on the market — a move that eventually made him millions of dollars and earned his family their own reality TV series.

For 25 years, Robertson said he stood in his dilapidated shed and handcrafted duck calls out of cedar trees native to Monroe-area swamps.

“I’d drive up to these Walmarts and they’d run me out, ‘you think we’re gonna buy old duck calls off the street?’ I said, ‘Hey man, Colonel Sanders started with one chicken and… that’s good chicken, man,” Robertson said.

His first year, Robertson said he sold $8,000 worth of duck calls, and his wife Kay somehow managed to feed four boys on that salary.

“Miss Kay says ‘I’ve been poor with you and I’ve been rich with you. Rich is better,’” Phil Robertson said.

“But I stayed with you through both,” she added.

Today, Robertson’s company Duck Commander has sales in the millions, with contracts in outdoor stores across the United States. For the past decade, the Robertsons’ third son Willie has been their CEO, which his parents say was an obvious choice.

“He was about 10 or 11, junior high, they called us from school, he had to set up a concession stand, selling candies, and he absolutely shut down the school’s whole snack shop,” Kay Robertson said.
