I enjoy the show as well. So does my wife. The little girl dating last night brought back memories for me. One particular night, I timed it so her date would see me cleaning my 1911 when he came to pick her up. Never seen a more polite young man in my life. haha.

Don't want no frogs on my biscuits, but I remember my great aunts homemade biscuits with Grandma's molasses mighty well. Miss them both, my aunt and the biscuits and molasses.

That will mean you will not be living like most of society. You will be living a different life now so you can live a better life later..............thereby, "live like nobody else (self sacrifice and delayed gratification) so you can live like nobody else (debt free, early retirement, discretionary income). Hope that makes sense.

Great beards are rare in today's society. After I got hooked on the show and Phil became my new hero I started to let my "van dyke" go full face just to see if it would come in (I'm 58 and have never had a full beard). My wife put the kibosh on it the first wedding we had to attend. It was spotty anyway. Oh well.......

Have you seen the respect those grandkids have for their grandpa Phil, "yes sir, no sir". Tough to find that anywhere these days. I think what makes the show is how they live their lives, regardless of their appearance. Two thumbs up from this subdivision yuppie
+1 on this, agreed

I personally love the show. I like at the end of every show willie gives his word on life and the lessons learned on that show. IMHO the beards are pretty BA, if i was aloud (work doesnt alow it) i would def grow a beard like those guys. Not sure if i would keep it that long, the wife would prolly put an end to it real quick like.

The only thing confusing for me about the show is that the sons call their Mom and Dad by their first names. Rather than Mom and Dad they refer to them as Miss Kate and Phil. Seems out of place for a close, rural family. No one in my family (uncles, aunts, cousins, etc.) have ever called their parents by their first names.

I wondered that also.

Don't know if the show is an act or not.....either way it's far better than any sitcom the best writers in Hollywood could possibly put out. The "country boy one liners" are pure genius comedy.

Sy is a natural comedian that could easily host his own late night show or even the Oscars. Best entertainment I've seen on TV in years.

Two thumbs up!!

How do you know about their hygiene? And its obvious that kind of "grooming" is relative to the family, if not the norm for the area.

I dont even know what this means, aside from sounding stereotypical. What do you mean "react" when "confronted" with them?

Am I to presume you judge all Muslims the same way who garnish the like traditional beard??

I love this show! Ironically, I have a SIL that lives in a very prominent, stuffy, high end part of town, who runs with the big money crowd in my city, she's a stuffy banker type...you get it...and she is addicted to this show! Tivo's it every week, doesn't miss it.

They are what the American dream is all about IMO.

I would love to have the land they have to play on. My 28 year old son is a fan. He is trying to figure out how we can amass that much land...............hope he is successful!!!

This reminds me of a cycle trip in Arkansas one year. We dual sporters like to go touring into the out-of-the way places on dirt and gravel roads, in the middle of nowhere. We stopped for gas one afternoon and struck up a long conversation with the store clerk.

He told us it would be best to be off the dirt roads before dark, for our own safety; The meth. labs are everywhere and they don't ask questions, shoot now and move their labs later. He was dead serious. He was correct and I still thank him to this day.

I grew up working in a family business with other non-family employees. We did not use "mom" and "dad" on the job, particularly in front of the customers. Could this be true for their family as well?

If Im not mistaken, Phil was starting quarterback ahead of Terry Bradshaw at LSU back in the day, gave it all up. If anyone has a chance, watch some of the old Duck Commander videos when it was just Phil and Warren Coco who I believe was the inventor of the Go-Devil motor. That was some duck hunting at it's finest. I've been an avid waterfowler my whole life and it's been interesting to watch them over the years become mega stars. The first videos, Phil was shooting an old beat up A-5 which was the real deal and then to be sponser by Browning to now shooting Benellis. I like to hear all the waterfowler guys say what a "sell out" and "pimp" Phil has become for the dollar, nobody hates a waterfowler like another waterfowler, hahahaha. I say good on him, to be able to do something you truely enjoy and love every day and make money at it!! Always been a fan of the Robertsons...

I Like Dave Ramsey's show.

As for Duck Hunters?

That show quacks me up!





Sorry, someone somewhere had to go there and nobody did so I did!
