No background music is necesary if you have ducks falling and guns going off! But to each his own.

    I guess I didn't make myself clear. I think the show is a hoot. There was an earlier thread awhile back complaining about how stupid the show is and how it painted duck hunters in a bad light. Obviously my attempt at sarcasm was poor.

    I knew what you meant Mike. I think a smiley thingie would have topped off the sarcasm a bit.

    I was one of those guys who originally wrote negative things about the show. The main reason I did was I followed the Phil Robertson VHS tapes from the original Duckmen and I did'n't care for some of the evolution of those over time. I automatically assumed they'd do some of the same on TV and I was very wrong.

    I went duck hunting with a customer and the topic of Duck Dynasty came up. My customer said something similar to what I expected before I saw the show. He said these dirty rednecks gave duck hunters a bad name. I asked how many times he'd watched the show and he said zero.

    My comments to him were: they never cussed, they never drank alcohol, they never spoke hatefully, and every show ends with a prayer as the family dines together and usually the moral of the story is stated.

    I have been blown away by the number of non-hunters that want to talk to me now about duck calling or duck hunting. They've become curious, more accepting, and even intrigued in some cases.

    I can guarantee you that RTF is and will be picking up new members who become interested in having a retriever due to interest piqued by this show.

    It's all good.

    I do think uncle Silas is hilarious, but I'm still a huge fan of the dry witted sense of humor that Jace shows. He didn't fall too far from the Phil Robertson tree.

    Trivia: There's a photographer named Seth Casteel, from Decatur, IL who has become pretty famous for underwater photography of dogs. Seth has been a pretty big supporter of the animal shelter programs here in town, and recently did a book signing to benefit. This week's episode with the "pet photographer" featured Seth as a characterized city-slicker who didn't know the country way. It was hilarious and Seth did a great job playing a part. One thing I think is really cool is how they downplay things on this show. I did not see them play up Seth's book or make a big deal of who he is. What a great show. I love it.

    We love this show, I started growing a beard, It's looks like Si now, but not as long yet. The wife is not a fan of my beard, but, it is the style now. I will be letting it grow out long, and think it should be required for all duck hunters carrying a man card.

    Yoga class, nah. Lions eatin Hyenas, Yep.

    The dog Si bought is actually Louter Creek Kennels dog UH HRCH MHR Southern Standards Red Creole MH, as you can see he has all the hunt test titles you could ask for. Louter Creek actually trains all the dogs on the show. So Si didn't actually buy him, he used him for the show. And yes, he had a special "Doo" for the show just to be funny. I mean, just look at those Balls on his feet.

    Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

    Sorry, as sarcastic as I am I'm usually better at picking up on it.

    I think the people that don't like the show take it, and maybe themselves, too seriously. It's a fun, funny show. My 25 yo daughter is hooked because of how funny it is and bought me the 1st season on DVD for my birthday last year. When I'm watching TV it's usually just to be entertained and this show does that. Not everything in life needs to have deep meaning or thought provoking content.

    Got to hear Willie speak today at Wildfire Weekend at Liberty University. Great testimony and message! I have a huge amount of respect for the Robertson Family, and what they are doing. Duck hunters have known them for a long time, but they are getting to share the Gospel with a large and diverse audience through DD! Refreshing change compared to most of TV these days.

    In a society today that sharing the Christian message is frowned upon the DD guys are spreading the word!
