Back in 1973, family patriarch Phil Robertson started his own duck calling company, which he named Duck Commander. Selling a variety of hunting gear, the Louisiana native’s business proved a massive, money-spinning success. However, the Robertson family’s life changed forever in 2012.

That year, Duck Commander boasted revenues of $40 million, with Phil’s son Willie now in charge of the family business. The good news didn’t stop there, though, as a reality TV show centered around the Robertsons made its debut on the A&E network in March 2012. Its name? Duck Dynasty.
