The Ducky Dynasty family with Benelli guns.

The popular Duck Commander company, owned and operated by Willie Robertson, has rejoined a partnership with shotgun maker Benelli, according to Monday’s announcement.

The Italian company with U.S. operations in Maryland will once again provide shotguns for the renowned hunting brand. Roberston called the deal “a great partnership” and that the Duck Commander team “is thrilled to re-establish” it.

Their initial partnership in 2006 quickly spurred a hunting show that would lay the groundwork for the popular “Duck Dynasty” series, but their relationship would end in 2013, when the Robertsons struck a deal with the Mossberg shotgun company.

The show had mainstream after it launched in 2012, but was disrupted in late 2013 when the A&E networked suspended the Roberson’s family patriarch, Phil Robertson, for disparaging remarks about homosexuals. The show has since resumed and will begin season 11 in mid-November.
