Before the production offered them a contract for their show, the big question was, what these bearded, rednecks know about appearing in the television series? But all the doubts were cleared when the first season of the show became hit, and the producers and directors were convinced about the Robertson Family’s onscreen performance. Because of the family’s culture, sometimes the series is sometimes put into the category of ‘rednecks television.’

The best thing about the Duck Dynasty family is the way they care for each other. The members of the family are religious, and they never take the name of their God in vain.
The business ‘Duck Commander’ was started by Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the family. It was him who crafted the unique and effective ‘duck calls’ decades ago. He started a small business, but years later it was his third son, Willie, turned Phil’s small business into a multimillion-dollar industry.
