WILDFOWL's Favorite Duck Dynasty Moments

WILDFOWL's Favorite Duck Dynasty Moments

They're America's first family of duck hunting. They're outrageously bearded, hilariously witty and unashamedly redneck.

They've also captured the attention of a national audience on A&E's hit TV show Duck Dynasty. They are the Robertsons, duck call innovators turned reality TV stars from the backwoods of Louisiana, and they're making their way to a television near you. Heck, Uncle Si may even take home the prize for sexiest meat eater of 2013, an honor bestowed by our friends over at Petersen's Hunting. Hard to believe the old man actually has a shot to win, especially when pretty faces like Tiffany Lakosky and Jennifer Lawrence are in the running.

Headed by Willie, who runs their duck call business, Duck Commander, the Robertsons got their start in the industry when family patriarch Phil started making calls back in the '70s. Phil decided to let future Hall of Fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw have the spotlight, trading in his cleats for a shotgun and some face paint. Bradshaw maintains Phil was actually a better quarterback at the time, but we'd say things turned out pretty well for both of them.

The other stars of the show are Willie's brother, Jase, and Uncle Si, who often steals the show with his non-stop antics. Whether he's telling a bunch of kindergartners stories about the brutalities of 'Nam, or philosophizing about work, naps and his trusty blue tea cup, Uncle Si is probably the best part of the show. As Jase said, Uncle Si is genuinely crazy, which is what makes him so entertaining.


As a salute to the bearded duckmen, we proudly present our favorite Duck Dynasty moments.


The Vegan Carrot Call

The boys from Duck Dynasty found their way into headlines again in February as they planned to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Vegan singer Morrissey, who was also slated for the show, cancelled his appearance because of the famous hunters.

In comedic response, Willie and Co. teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel to produce the carrot call — a vegan alternative to their famous duck call brand. Good show, we say.

The Harlem Shake

Not to be outdone by the Miami Heat and their rendition of the Harlem Shake, the boys from Duck Dynasty staged their own version earlier this month. Willie led the dance with his LSU helmet, Jase stood still with a shotgun in hand and Godwin flailed on the ground, bare belly and all. Duck Dynasty — where redneck meets retro.

Si-Tunes

Uncle Si has a penchant for getting popular sayings mixed up, which is even funnier when he tries to sing the latest songs of the day. "Hey, listen Jack, I like my Korn, my Black Eyed Peas... all with a dash of Salt-n-Pepa. Most of all, I like my Ice-T." In the words of Si, homey don't play.

Si's Anti-Beaver Rant

If you're a beaver living anywhere near Monroe, La., you best lookout. Uncle Si and his wrecking crew have a bone to pick with the "peltic plague," and they're not afraid to say it. As this clip reveals, Si is at his best when he goes hostile on the enemy.

"Phil invented the duck call so he's the Duck Commander," Si said. "If I invented the beaver call, maybe I'd be the Beaver Commander. It has a nice ring to it, Beaver Commander."

It's Not You, It's Me

In this episode, Willie and the rest of the Robertson boys try to comfort his son after a traumatic breakup. Uncle Si offers his lame duck advice, including this hilarious quip about a girl he once knew in college. Now you'll always have a comeback when a girl says, "It's not you, it's me."

Sibling Rivalry

Is there anything Duck Commander boss Willie and his brother Jase won't turn into a competition? Nope. Whether it's fishing or toast or frozen pizza, they're always ready to square off. Willie's a touch of a mama's boy and Jase isn't afraid to let him know about it. "He's the CEO," Jase says. "It stands for caveman with an ego, who is obese."

Redneck Road Trip

Let's just say when you put a crew of duckmen in an RV with uncle Si's home cookin', it ain't pretty. Beans, hot sauce and a confined space don't go together, as the boys from Duck Dynasty find out on their not-so-amazing redneck road trip.

Work Hard, Nap Hard

You probably had no idea uncle Si has an entire philosophy on life, but he does — work hard, nap hard. A&E even turned his life motto into a short music video replete with Si's take on working, napping and sippin' tea.

Driver's Ed

We could tell you Willie is a master when it comes to giving his daughter Sadie instruction, but then we'd be lying. No matter — it's a whole heck of a lot funnier to watch as he tries to give parental advice and falls flat on his face. Most parents can identify, but if nothing else it's worth a good hearty laugh.

Si Goes to Kindergarten

What kind of lesson do kindergarteners need to hear these days? Well, if you ask uncle Si, they need to hear about 'Nam. Uncle Si sits down to tell a few youngsters about blood, gore and Bengal tigers.
