Duck hunting celebrity commands attention at Rosemont


Phil Robertson, better known as the Duck Commander, traveled from his home state of Louisiana last week to speak to a crowd of roughly 350 at Rosemont Heights Baptist Church. License plates from several counties away could be seen in the parking lot full of pick-up trucks. Robertson is widely acclaimed for the duck calls and other products developed and sold by him and his family. The Duck Commander, backed by major sponsors like Benelli, and his team have also won numerous awards for their hunting videos and television shows. Though duck hunting is his passion and provides his livelihood, Robertson devotes much of his time to his other great love, sharing the Gospel. He travels all over the country speaking to churches and other organizations. Above, Robertson helps Jimmy Smith of Sandersville polish his call after the presentation at Rosemont.
