Hunting celebrities appear in Gladewater

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- An East Texas auto dealership enlisted the help of some famous hunters from a cable TV show. The promotion at Gladewater car dealership McKaig Buick was called "A Day in Deer Camp. It drew fans of two stars from a popular hunting show on the Outdoors Channel , Duck Commander and Buck Commander.

Phil Robertson , the duck commander, and his son Willie Robertson, the buck commander, use Silverados from McKaig on their show. They came to sign autographs and promote hunting, and they said they understand that their appearance always draws curiosity.

"I heard somebody drive by and say, 'So easy a caveman could do it'. It's all part of the terrain," Willie said.

"Producers said, 'We'd like to make a reality show out of your family, Mr. Robertson.' And I said 'A redneck bunch of people shooting ducks? You reckon that will work'," said Phil.

Evidently it did. The 3rd season of Duck Commander and Buck Commander is scheduled to be aired on the Outdoor Channel starting in July of 2011.
