What is the effect of Duck Dynasty's runaway popularity on hunting? On a few of the waterfowl boards I lurk, people are quick to point a finger at all the new DD-inspired hunters who have just now taken up the sport. They are the ones to blame for skyblasting, bad calling, poor manners in the marsh, and long lines at the boat ramp. Me, I wonder if that's true. It's not as if those aggravations didn't exist before the show went on the air in 2012. There has been a slight uptick in duck stamp sales lately, I'm told, but I'm not sure how much credit Duck Dynasty can take.
