Meet Mountain Man
Duck Dynasty star Tim Guraedy is best known to the show’s millions of hard-core fans as “Mountain Man,” the slow-talking air-conditioning repairman/radio host who is a neighbor to the Robertsons, the Louisiana family that made a fortune from its best-selling duck calls, and around which the show is based. “Mountain Man” is the only semi-regular cast member who is not a Robertson family member or employee of Duck Commander.
While he was born in Louisiana, Guraedy moved around a bit in his youth, spending time in Minnesota, Tennessee and Indiana. But the lure of the Bayou State was too strong, and Guraedy returned to Louisiana, where it has been his home for the past 25 years. He lives in Monroe, LA, the small town made famous by Duck Dynasty and Duck Commander. Guraedy’s weekly radio show on local station Z107.5, Big Z Country has become popular all over the globe, with people tuning in, via the Internet, to hear “Mountain Man”’s delightful mix of common sense, sports, music – and usually a Bible verse or two. For to know “Mountain Man” is to know a man whose Christian faith is a big part of who he is. “Life’s not easy, but I have God in my life and it’s so much better. So much better,” he has said. This faith, as well as his recent celebrity, is now allowing him the opportunity to reach out to people who need inspiration: “I love being able to actually go to schools and give speeches about bullying, drugs, and abstinence. It makes my soul feel good,” Guraedy continued. Guraedy is also an avid outdoorsman, enjoying both fresh and salt water fishing, as well as hunting for everything from wild boar to, well, ducks, of course.
It doesn’t matter if people know him as Monroe, LA AC repairman Tim Guraedy or TV personality “Mountain Man,” – you’ll still get the same humble, down-to-earth man: “I’ve never been a person to judge, or to hold grudges. I don’t hate anybody, and I don’t even have the ability to do so. I’ve always tried to treat others like I would like to be treated.”
“I’m just a country boy…a redneck sticking to my roots.”

“One of the questions I get asked a lot as I travel throughout the country is, “Does Mountain Man really talk like that?” My answer is always, “Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeessss,” in my best Mountain Man imitated voice. Mountain Man has become one of the more likable people on Duck Dynasty because he’s willing to laugh at himself and fire back at my family in view of our quirks. When you’re forgiven and have hope in life after the grave, it gives you a peace in life that keeps you from taking yourself too seriously with the little things. Mountain Man has found a peace in Christ that has given him a platform to try and help others. I am proud that he has chosen to write a book to try and inspire others to do great things. Sit back and get comfortable, and may faith, hope, and love flourish in your life.”
