The Internet was abuzz recently with rumors that two members of the Duck Dynasty clan had snubbed Barbara Walters refusing to fly to New York to be on her 2013 Most Fascinating People show. According to the pair they would rather go duck hunting.
After news got out that A&E network reality show stars Phil and Jase Robertson declined Walters’ invitation to go to New York to be on the year-ender show, people began buzzing that the family was dissing Walters. But apparently it was not quite the “snub” that many assume.
It turns out that the pair just didn’t want to miss duck hunting season.

The family told The Blaze that no disrespect was intended toward Walters. But duck hunting is “their thing” if you will. After all, the show IS named after ducks!
“They simply didn’t want to miss three days of hunting to do everything we had planned,” Alan Robertson told TheBlaze. “As a family, we were very honored to be recognized on the [Walters] list and there was no disrespect intended by us.”
“When it comes to Dad and Jase, ducks trump just about anything from late November to late January, it’s just the way they roll!”
“Tell him I have never been superseded by a duck before,” Walters joked during the clan’s interview during the show.
Well, that clears that up, anyway. Tell us what you think in the comments, won’t you?
