Phil Robertson, patriarch of the Duck Dynasty clan, hinted in a recent interview that he will be leaving the show soon. How soon, we don't know just yet.

When asked how much longer he will be part of the show, he commented, "Not long, but I think it'll go on without me."

While Phil didn't elaborate, rest assured he'll still be heavily involved in Season 4, which debuts on August 14th.

Phil's son Willie says the show has brought the family "a whole lot closer."  He adds that, "It's probably the opposite of most reality shows. And nobody gets a big head because we're doing it all together."

Oh, by the way, having your own show tends to be good for business. In 2011, Duck Commander sold about 60,000 duck calls. This year, they expect to sell about 750,000 of those little quackers!
