They are from Monroe Louisiana, the father Phil started a business making duck calls, he inturn handed it over to his sons, they are active in the business as well as the show. They have supported many programs for underprivilaged youth, donated countless hours and money. Now if we were talking about HoneyBooBoo or Double D or all the wives of what ever city that is garbage. The Robertsons are a down home laid back family, what you see is what you get. They don't even try to sell the duck calls on the show. It at times is dry humor but honest and clean in every episode.
