The down-to-Earth gang of bearded duck call builders from West Monroe, Louisiana are back for their third season on A&E. Phil, Si, Willie, Jase and the rest of the Duck Dynasty crew kick off another season beginning February 27, and their rabid fans cannot wait. With past episodes like “High Tech Redneck”, “Samurai Si” and “Leave it to Beavers,” the Duck Commander group, led by Phil Robertson, gave the world a glimpse into their lives, family dynamics, work, faith and love. Season three looks to follow the same, wildly successful path.
Duck Commander was founded in 1973 by Phil Robertson, a former quarterback from Louisiana Tech. Together with his wife Kay, and four sons, they built a dynasty in the duck calling industry by creating some of the finest calls on the market, then capitalized on that success with a series of duck hunting videos, a television series and a storefront featuring Duck Commander gear. The Duck Dynasty series on A&E has given the world away from the hunting lifestyle a peak into a family that has stuck to a core foundation in faith, family and work ethic, albeit one that is highly entertaining and involves a lot of humor. That is something oddly unfamiliar to the standard reality television driven world. It is also wholesomely refreshing in this day and age.
