"Duck Dynasty's" Tim Guraedy, a.k.a. "Mountain Man," may be an author, radio host and recording artist but he wants us all to know he has stayed true to his roots.
"My son Jonathan and I were hunting and I shot a deer and as I was trying to drag it out, my flashlight went out and a thorn got me in the eye and I couldn't hardly see at all," Guraedy told FOX411 of the day he lost his fast food job.
He says his only solution was to drag the deer into his 4-wheel drive and have his 9-year-old son drive home but not before they dropped the deer off in the freezer at his then fast food place of employment, which is something he had done before. But this time it did not go over well with his bosses.
“The managers and supervisors (came in) the next morning and they found that (dead deer) and made a big fuss of it this time,” he recalled. “The health department had just slapped me on the wrist (last time) but this time they decided they were going to get rid of old Mountain Man so they fired me with that deer.”
Quirky little stories like this, with a few related bible verses are the basis of his new book, “Mountain Man: Keepin' a Slow Profile.” Guraedy insists he hasn’t changed since appearing on the hit A&E television show and wrote this book to help other’s take a look at life from his point of view.
“I notice that everybody is always in kind of a rush to get by and they don't take the time to slow down,” he noted. “Which kind of goes with my character.”
But starring on one of the most watched reality programs in history does mean life takes a little longer than it used too.
“I started a little too late in life to ever be excited (about the fame) but as I go through everyday life like going to Walmart, a trip that should only take 20 minutes can turn into two hours,” he added. “Everybody's got camera phones these days and they want autographs and photos. It’s just a fulfilling feeling.”
