Got an extra 80 grand burning a hole in your pocket and not sure what to buy with it? Do you have a special someone in your life who enjoys camo and water fowl and you plan on spending a literal fortune on them this holiday season? If so, the gang from Duck Dynasty has the perfect gift for you!
Back before they were international celebrities, best-selling authors, and chart-topping recording artists (more on that in a bit), Phil Robertson built an empire making duck calls. Now A&E is auctioning off the one millionth call produced in 2013 with the proceeds going to a very worthy cause.

The double reed, friction fit duck call is autographed by Phil and being auctioned off on eBay. The current bid is a whopping $80,000, and proceeds from the auction will go to the Northeast Louisiana Veterans Association Wounded Warrior Alumni. Appropriately the donation will help fund hunting trips for wounded veterans.
One fan pointed out that the show already featured a party celebrating Duck Commander's one millionth call, posting, "I'm concerned that this is a bit of a fraud since the CEO of the company had a party to celebrate their millionth duck call last year, and said on camera, they really had no way to know how many calls they had manufactured. It's been broadcast on television! I'm a big fan of both Duck Dynasty and the Wounded Warrior Project but this seems wrong."
Fear not though! The legitimate concern was quickly answered by the auction's administrator, clarifying, "I understand your concern. The show was about the millionth call ever. This is the millionth call that has been built just this year—in 2013. Since the airing of that episode, we have much better tracking in place to keep count of the number of calls built and sold. Thank you so much and don't hesitate to ask any more questions."
Not only is the Robertson crew busy raising money for veterans, they also have the number one country album on the billboard chart this week. Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas debuted this week in the top spot knocking Luke Bryan's album from first to fourth. Sounds like the perfect stocking stuffer to me (the album…and Luke Bryan! ).
TELL US-CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT SOMEONE WOULD BID $80,000 ON A DUCK CALL? WILL YOU BE BUYING THE ROBERTSON FAMILY'S CHRISTMAS ALBUM?
