Theres few things a Robertson enjoys more than hunting.

But for Jep Robertson, the youngest son of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson, a deer-hunting trip last weekend nearly turned deadly.

Thats because, in the middle of the hun, Jep suffered a sudden, terrifying seizure that doctors believe was brought on by a serious bacterial infection.

Robertson, 36, was taken to a hospital and appears to be on the mend. The cause of his seizure has not been discovered, E! Online reported.

Well, I about died this past Sunday…Im doing much better now, Robertson tweeted on Saturday. Thanks for all the prayers!

Thankfully, he was in the stand with friends, and (brother) Willie was at the hunting camp when it occurred so he was by his side in a matter of minutes, the family said in a statement.

The Robertson family added that Jep will remain hospitalized for additional tests and observation and he is being treated with antibiotics to cover a range of possible infections believed to have caused the seizure.

Prayers up for Jep to make a speedy recovery!
