Inside Scoop on Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty

Inside Scoop on Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty

duck dynasty,

You know you've hit it big when you reach corn maze status. This week Uncle Si Robertson from Duck Dynasty, now airing on The Outdoor Channel, got promoted to this level of fame when Corn Dawgs, a Loganville, Ga., company, etched his face into a corn maze.

In the last year, we've posted some DD gold including an interview with Willie Robertson, and a Jase Robertson interview. We've also captured some awesomely redneck Duck Dynasty moments that will have you rolling on the floor, and 10 Best Duck Dynasty Moments.

If you still haven't gotten enough, we'd like to share some Game & Fish exclusive Willie Robertson photos. What's Willie like when the cameras aren't rolling? (All photos by Ron Sinfelt)


The Boss

When asked how much of the show is scripted, WIllie replies, "I am CEO of this company, and you'll see more of my CEO side portrayed in the show. I am the boss of the company. And they hone in on the parts that are the most entertaining. They highlight the goof-off points. They show Jase not doing work, but he does do work. They just show when he doesn't."

Read the full interview with Jase.

Portrayal of Hunters

In regard to non-hunters watching Duck Dynasty, Willie says, "Those non-hunters see it as entertaining, and hopefully we show people who hunt and outdoorsmen as positive people anyone can relate to. The program shows that we are successful at our business, and people respect that fact no matter where they live."

Read the interview.

\"Crossbows Are Just Fun\"

Why does Willie hunt with a crossbow? "If I can use a crossbow, I will. I also love having a little extra distance — compared to a bow — and more confidence in my shot. I'm not trying to prove anything to anybody. Crossbows are just fun. You can practice it in your back yard."

What\'s Next?

What\'s next for Willie and the family? "I don't know. Buy an island? Um, we'll be doing a Christmas album. We'll film another season if we finish negotiations. I'm not the looking-three-years-down-the-road kind of guy. If I tried to plan the last three years, I would have way undershot this."

\"Funny Helps\"

When asked why he thinks Duck Dynasty is so wildly popular, Willie responds, "Family values. We're funny. Funny helps. We're positive. I think people sense the authenticity of us as people."
