Phil Robertson, founder and star of A&E’s most popular reality TV Show talks about his life’s journey.  From sex, drugs and Rock and Roll to a multimillionaire duck hunter.  Happy, Happy, Happy is a reference to Thomas Jefferson – “All men are created equal….life, liberty and the pursuit of HAPPINESS.”

As the nation starts to welcome Phil into their lives by watching Duck Dynasty, many of duck hunters know what the Duck Commander believes in but his new book is a no-hold, tell-all bio.  In his book he says, “Faith, Family and Ducks in that order..”.  There is no question to that as each show comes to an end, the family sits at a large table, bowing their heads to pray and eat their harvested ducks during the waterfowl season.

Phil talks more about what started his repentance and how it came about.  In a video interview with Lifeway Christian Store he says, “When I was 28, some guy with a Bible came in a beer joint that I was running, and he wanted to talk it over.  So I basically ran him out of the place.  My sister is the one that brought him and while he was at the back trying to get a bible study going with the old guy here- yours truly, my sister was up at the front handing out bible tracks.  So that created a little bit of a ruckus.  So I ran the guy off.   But later on I looked him back up.”  “So at 28, I finally sat down and listened for the first time in my life to the story of Jesus of Galilee…”

Phil’s great story tells us how he had a promising career in football but followed a calling from God.  Soon after, he invented a duck call that would begin an incredible journey to the life he had always dreamed of for himself and his family. With great love for his country, his family, and his maker, Phil has finally found the ingredients to the “happy life”.

Duck Commander Shadow Single Reed Mallard Hen Call

Affordable & Effective.

Rating: 8/10 Jump aboard.

 

For a lot of us as duck hunters, choosing a duck call can be the hardest choice we come across. People have asked me in that past, “What is the best duck call”. My answer always sounded something like this, “I’m not sure I could ever answer that question.” Well, perhaps I might. Behind every great duck call is a duck caller.
Most duck hunters will stick with what has worked and proven it is duck killing worthy and I easily understand as well as respect that. As for myself, I like to try what’s new. I’m always thinking to myself, have they found something that works better?

Duck Commander released the all new Shadow Single Reed Mallard Hen Call in late 2012. A great mid-range single reed that is just as easy to blow and get used to as a double reed. Now I know what some of you seasoned duck hunters are thinking, here’s another single reed and I do not like single reeds. However, I do believe Duck Commander might have found a way to make the single reeds hang with the big boys. Being 4 3/4″ long, long reed board with a long wedge and just over an inch at it’s widest, the polycarbonate Shadow is great in size and allows you to easily be affective in executing quacks, feeding chuckle other cadences. It can certainly get quiet but with the long wedge it is difficult to break over when trying to hit the comeback notes.

Yes, the cost is low but don’t let the cost make you think you are getting what you are paying for.  A single reed that can sound great and is easy to use is worth more than $30, in my opinion. Jump onboard, because this ship isn’t sinking, JACK!
