To begin with, John was taught hunting by his father, who also took the boy to duck calling contests, in one of which John met Phil Robertson, who served as a judge, and eventually John joined him on TV. In the above mentioned contest Godwin used the Duck Commander call and won third place overall. John subsequently studied at Louisiana Tech College, and after graduation, began working for Riverwood International Paper Mill, eventually for 21 years. At first, he worked at Duck Commander only in extra hours to earn a little more money, but later Robertson convinced him to work full time, so in 2002, Godwin started his full-time career at Duck Commander, which for some time was the main source of his net worth.

Due to the huge popularity of the show – the premiere of the fourth season caught the attention of almost 12 million viewers – it earned more than $80 million in advertising sales in 2013 alone, as well as receiving $400 million in total revenue the same year. It should be noted that the Christmas album “Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas” (2013) released under the label of UMG Nashville was also very successful, topping the Billboard Country and Holiday charts, as well as reaching the 3rd and 8th positions respectively on the main US and Canadian music charts, eventually being certified platinum in US and gold in Canada. All these sales certainly helped boost John’s net worth.

In additionally, John Godwin has appeared in the spin-offs of the “Duck Dynasty” series, which are “Best of the Duckmen”, “The Art of Commanding Ducks”, as well as “Duckmen 7 – 11”. To summarise, appearances on television have increased the total size of John Godwin’s net worth significantly, as well as making him famous.
