In the beginning, Kay and their sons not only helped Phil with the Duck Commander
business, but they also ran the nets and took fish to market in a side commercial fishing business that kept food on the table.
In the mid-’70s, Phil turned his life over to the Lord and made dramatic changes. Phil Robertson is not only known as The Duck Commander, but also he has built a reputation across the country for his faith and belief in the Almighty. Every year, he is invited to
speak to hundreds of churches and organizations, telling them what the Lord has done
for him and what the Lord can do for them.
Duck Commander is still a family business, with all 4 sons and their wives either presently working or previously having worked for the company at one time or another. The Robertsons no longer build, package, and ship calls from their home on the Ouachita
River. The production has moved into the warehouse located in West Monroe, which is featured on A&E’s hit TV series, “Duck Dynasty.” Phil still enjoys running fishing nets and now the fish he catches feeds all of the kids and grandkids. Yes, it’s a
rough life, but as Phil says, “Somebody’s gotta do it.”
Since 1973, Duck Commander Products, which now include much more than just duck calls, have been sold in all 50 states and in several countries. Not long after the success of the calls, Phil began a series of videos that developed a worldwide fan-base of fellow duck hunters. The “Duckmen” videos revolutionized duck hunting with their rock ‘n’ roll, “in-your-face” style. These videos rightfully claim leading authority status in the hunting industry. Phil’s calls and techniques help others bring ducks right into their blinds, and The Duck Commander faithfully swears by the deadly effects of all his calls.
It isn't often a person can live a dream, but Phil Robertson, aka The Duck Commander, has proven it is possible to achieve your goals – with vision, hard work, helping hands, and an unshakable faith in the Almighty. If you ever wind up sitting face-to-face with Phil Robertson, you will see that his enthusiasm and passion for duck hunting and for the Lord is no act – it truly makes him the man this nation has come to know, respect and love.
