Jep Robertson of Duck Dynasty suffered a seizure whole on a hunting trip over the weekend, but despite that health scare, he is expected to recover fully.

He was rushed to the hospital after the incident, according to insiders.

The youngest of Phil Robertson’s four sons, 35-year-old Jep had his brother Willie Robertson by his side as he was taken in for treatment after collapsing.

He’s currently being treated with antibiotics for possible infections that may have triggered the seizure as he remains hospitalized for further testing.

Says the Duck Dynasty cast member’s rep in a statement Sunday:

“Jep was rushed to the hospital and received immediate treatment. He is doing well now, but is still in the hospital for additional tests and observation.”


“Our family would like to thank everyone for their love and support and ask that you keep Jep, Jessica and their children in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”

Jep, the proud father of four little kids with amazing wife Jessica Robertson, appears to be in good spirits, considering his good fortune to be alive.

“Well, I about died this past Sunday,” he tweeted on Saturday. “I’m doing much better now. Thanks for all the prayers! #seizuressuck #gladtobealive.”

He also posted a split photo of himself (above) posing in a hospital bed like the image of Steven Seagal, also in a hospital bed. The caption reads:

“Just like Steven Seagal, I’m hard to kill.”

Phil Robertson, the Duck Dynasty patriarch, and wife Miss Kay have four grown sons, Alan, Jase (Jason), Willie and Jep (Jules Jeptha) Robertson.

You can see them all again next month if you watch Duck Dynasty online, as the popular A&E reality series, like Jep, is alive and quacking despite setbacks.

Willie’s daughter Sadie Robertson is also competing tonight on Dancing With the Stars, where she’s emerged as one of the top contenders this season.
