The stars of Duck Dynasty, A&E's hit reality show about Louisiana's Robertson family and its duck call business, are known for their large, bushy beards.

Those beards are contractually mandated, in fact, having become as integral to the show as the multimillion-dollar Duck Commander operation or their silly antics.

Jase Robertson: No Beard!
Jase Robertson of Duck Dynasty with no beard. That was a long time ago. With Jase is his wife Missy.

If you haven't seen the show ... you're missing out. And these things are long. So much so you stand next to no chance of going as one of them for Halloween.

Unless you're a member of the Boston Red Sox, you're gonna have to buy a fake one. But the affable, duck-loving gang didn't always look like they do now.

The beards used to be a hunting season-only thing until the show took off, so there are plenty of photos of Duck Dynasty cast without them, as crazy as it sounds.

Take a look at the men of Duck Dynasty without beards above!

The men of Duck Dynasty are contractually obligated to keep their beards at a certain length, according to beardless brother Alan in a new interview.

Alan, a minister who appeared on the show for the first time in the Duck Dynasty Season 4 premiere to "marry" Phil and Miss Kay, shed light on the subject.

The family tradition is to grow them out during hunting season, he said, but they became the show's signature, so now they must be maintained year-round.

"We all used to shave them off, but now of course since they're such big stars, the beards are in their contracts," he said. "They have to keep them a certain length."

Yes ... it's contractual, NYC facial profiling be damned.

A 16-year-old male has been arrested in the case of a kidnapped Duck Dynasty scarecrow - a Si Robertson likeness - in Ball Ground, Ga. Yes, that is a real town.

The suspect was charged with theft after local police found the scattered and burned remains of the straw Si statue in the back yard of his home.

Here's what the scarecrow looked like before the incident:

Ball Ground Police Chief Bryon Reeves said that after a thorough search throughout the town for the burgled Si, the case seems to have been solved:

"We discovered after an investigation that a juvenile had taken it. I made contact with the juvenile who lives a little further away and he admitted to taking it."

"It was nothing but ashes, it was completely gone."

It's the fourth season finale of A&E's Duck Dynasty, which is as sad a fact as there is in the TV world. But at least the finale revolves around Halloween.

Or as Willie put it, the only holiday where it's socially acceptable to "eat candy and scare the crap out of little kids." Truer words have never been spoken.

To that end, the Robertsons turn the warehouse into the Duck Commander Scare House for the kids in the area, then dress up in costume to freak 'em out.

With the Scare House just about open for business, Jessica and Jep show up as Raggedy Ann and Andy, complete with a little dance they practiced.

"I have now found a new low for manhood," Jase says, having already proclaimed, "Grown men getting excited about dressing up, that's just weird."

Phil, while not a big fan of "pagan holidays," finds Halloween somewhat tolerable because cupcakes are involved, and carves pumpkins with the grandkids.

Duck Dynasty stars Phil and Si Robertson believe gun control is not what America needs. Rather, it's sin control and self control that our nation lacks.

“It ain’t gun control we need, it’s sin control,” Si told Men’s Journal.

“Self-control,” corrected elder brother, Phil, the family patriarch.

Si and Phil Robertson

The brothers and Phil’s sons, Jase, Jep and Willie Robertson are hoping to use their newfound fame to spread the gospel of religion and political conservatism.

"We're trying to infuse a little good into a culture in which gentleness, patience, kindness, self-control, love, joy and peace have become abnormal," Phil said.

Willie and Korie Robertson of Duck Dynasty, already the parents of five children, hinted at a recent event that they may not be done adding to their brood.

Make way for more Ducklings?

Willie and Korie Robertson

The Robertsons have an adopted son, Will, 11, and a foster daughter, Rebecca, 24, in addition to their three biological kids Sadie, John Luke, and Bella.

But they admitted there’s room for at least one more during an appearance at the Adoption Institute’s Angels in Adoption Gala in Washington D.C.

“Absolutely. There are plenty of kids who need homes,” Willie said when asked if he's considering another adoption. “That’s why we’re all here."

"We have adopted children and we have natural children," the CEO of Duck Commander said, "and to us, there’s no difference between them.”

"They got everything in this thing. Fainting goats. Sneezing pandas. Double rainbows, all the way to both ends... Where's this thing been all my life?"

- Silas Robertson, on YouTube

Yes, on this week's Duck Dynasty, ol' Uncle Si apparently experiences YouTube for the first time, and his productivity drops to previously unseen levels.

If that's possible.

Si is so hooked on the 'Tube that he skips lunch with the Duck Commander gang and is still watching his "magic box" when they return an hour later.

All this after Willie shut down social media at work. You can't tell slackers what to, Will. If you push back, they'll find another way to slack, Jack!

"As rednecks, we have the right to eat beef jerky." So speaketh Jason Robertson, and another episode of A&E's hilarious Duck Dynasty hath been born.

When Willie receives a package of Biltong, a South African form of beef jerky (because we all get that in the mail), he doesn't want to share it with the crew.  

A jerk about beef jerky, you could say.

This sets off the usual barrage of complaints in the duck call room, which prompts Si to set up an actual complaint box. There are just so darn many, jack!

Among them? There is no unlimited supply of coffee, or iced tea dispenser, or sofa for napping. Also, the toilet paper is like John Wayne ... it don't take crap off nobody!

This week on Duck Dynasty, Si suffers the "menthol" and physical trauma of Willie backing into his truck, which he turns into another excuse not to work.

Willie did hit the truck, but barely. Yet Si alleges that damages total $3,500, then lowers that to a "family discount" of $1,000 ... which is still $1,000 too high.

It did not leave a mark on the heavy-duty bumper guard on Si's truck, let alone dent the thing, but nevertheless, Si's going to milk this for all it's worth.

Soon, Si rolls up to the Duck Commandeer warehouse on a scooter and claiming, "I got back damage," then "nerve damage." Willie is not buying it.

His use of the scooter in the warehouse causes more damage than anything Willie did, but that is sort of the point of the episode, and it's amusing.

"Just a lone man on his scooter, fighting the world's injustice," Si laments.

The Duck Dynasty dynasty shows no signs of slowing down.

Having achieved record ratings through three-plus seasons on A&E, the Robertson family has branched out into many successful side ventures as well.

Duck Dynasty Cast

Books, perhaps most notably. Howard Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, announced three more tie-in works to the smash reality show in 2014.

Five books penned by the Robertson family already are out, including such top sellers as Happy, Happy, Happy and The Duck Commander Family.

Scheduled for next year are Faith in the Duck Blind, an ode to the family's strong Christian values, The Women of Duck Commander and Phil-Osophy.
