The Robertsons seem like the perfect family with the perfect life. Together they run a multi-million dollar business based on their own inventions. On their hit show Duck Dynasty, they do everything together right down to praying over their meals. They have their dream, they live in the best part of town, they hunt, they fish, they have beautiful wives and loving kids. Duck Dynasty is the highest rated cable show ever. Their Duck Commander products — everything from duck calls to tea glasses to clothing and even loofahs — are everywhere.
But things could have turned out so differently for them. Before the beards, Phil Robertson wasn’t always the faithful patriarch of a family empire. Once upon a time he was a foul, angry man on a bad path.
