Louisiana Hunting Legend: The Duck Commander

Dreams provide vision and touch generations. When one follows a dream they provide hope. Dreamers are trailblazers. One such dreamer calls Louisiana home. He had a vision and made it come true through hard work and passion. That man is Phil Robertson, The Duck Commander.

"It isn't often a person can live a dream, but Phil Robertson, aka The Duck Commander, has proven it is possible with vision, hard work, helping hands, and an unshakable faith in the Almighty." (quote taken from The Duck Commander website.)

Louisiana is known as the Sportsman's Paradise for many reasons including hunting, fishing, boating, and so much more. It is an outdoor lover's dream. The state is full of rivers, bayous, lakes and sloughs. Hunting and fishing are a way of life.

North Louisiana is home to hunting legend Phil Robertson (aka The Duck Commander). Phil Robertson grew up in Vivian, Louisiana where he enjoyed hunting and fishing with his brothers. A tradition that he has passed on to his own children.

In 1972, Phil Robertson set out to make a duck call that actually sounded like a duck -- The Duck Commander call. According to The Duck Commander website, he wanted to make a call for the "duck killers". Read his entire bio here.

Visit the Official Duck Commander website for shirts, caps, DVDs, posters, and of course duck calls. There are calls for the beginner or the pro. These calls are made by hunters for people who are serious about calling ducks. They are serious calls for serious hunters.

In addition to the merchandise, the Duck Commander website offers hunting advice and information on all of The Duckmen.

There are also some GREAT recipes to try including "DUCK AND DRESSING". (Editor's note: Saw this recipe on one of the DVDs and tried it. This is the only dressing that we will have now. It is delicious!!!!)

In the off season, Phil Robertson is available for speaking engagements. He likes to discuss the orders from headquarters and the most important message about his "unshakable faith in the Almighty".

On July 4th the Outdoor Channel will show a reality show featuring The Duck Commander and The Duckmen. The trailer is great!

If you are into deer hunting, join Will Robertson and the Buckmen for Buck Commander. Buck Commander has several DVDs and merchandise.
