Conan O'Brien Tries Calling with Duck Dynasty Stars

Conan O'Brien Tries Calling with Duck Dynasty Stars

It's refreshing to see more and more celebrities helping to bring the outdoors lifestyle to the mainstream. On Tuesday, late-night host Conan O'Brien jumped onboard.

O'Brien, who hosts the eponymous show "Conan" on TBS, brought on the stars of A&E's "Duck Dynasty," Phil and Willie Robertson, and the duo gave O'Brien a crash course in duck calling.

If you haven't already heard, the Duck Commanders stormed onto cable TV last month with their kick-ass beards and Beverly Hillbilly-like appeal to widespread acclaim. And this late night appearance should only help their popularity.


OK, maybe O'Brien's first duck calls weren't the greatest we've ever heard -- though not bad for a first-timer -- but we certainly appreciate the attempts by he and other celebrities -- and also to the Robertson family -- to bring hunting to the mainstream. We couldn't be more grateful.

New for 2021: 6.8 Western Rifle Cartridge

The 6.8 Western features a .277-caliber bullet loaded into a case that's been optimized to fit longer, heavier bullets. Consider it a .270 on steroids, or more accurately, an improved version of the .270 Winchester Short Magnum, which never gained enough traction to make it mainstream.
