BlazeTV host Jase Robertson had an early-morning surprise while heading to hunt, which sparked a lively discussion among the "Duck Dynasty" family patriarchs about overcoming hardships and the importance of Jesus is in our lives.
On a recent episode of "Unashamed," Jase told his father, Phil, and brother, Al, that he recently came across a human body lying face-down in the middle of a remote road while headed out for an early-morning duck hunt.
"I've often said, and many times I've told various stories, that you see things in between the hours of 3:30 and 5 a.m. that really show a reflection of the status of life — and a lot of it is troubling," Jase began.
Jase recalled getting a phone call at 4:45 a.m. from fellow hunter, Jay Stone, telling him to "watch out for that body in the middle of the road."
"What would you say to that?" Jase asked, adding that his response was actually to ask "what kind of body" Stone meant.
When Stone answered "human," Jase became alarmed and hung up so that he could focus his full attention on the road. Within seconds, he saw "something big" in the road. At that same time, Stone also arrived on the scene.
"So, I ease around the body in the road," Jase explained. "And at that moment, I felt compassion. I thought this body was dead, because it was face down on the asphalt with ... arms outstretched. ... [Stone] called 9-1-1 and ... now I've just turned around in the ditch and we've both got our headlights on this human body. I mean, now I'm like 99% sure he looked dead."
He continued, "I lit him up with this spotlight. There's nobody out here. There's no blood. I see no movement, but I see no blood. And I looked at his feet, he had bare feet and had pajama pants on ... and his feet look real dirty, as in he'd been walking on the road. And I thought, maybe he just collapsed. So, then it hit me to do what I should have done first. I went 'hey!' I hollered, I mean, loud and ... he kind of moved his head."
Jase went on to describe how the man, without opening his eyes or speaking, then moved is hands behind his back in the "handcuff position."
"So that made me think, he's probably been up to no good," Jase said.
"Yes, it's possible in this particular scenario," Phil commented in his characteristically dry tone.
