Duck Dynasty star Jep Robertson suffered a seizure while hunting last week and almost died ... well at least that's what Jep says.

"Well, I about died this past Sunday...I'm doing much better now. Thanks for all the prayers! #seizuresuck #gladtobealive," Jep, the youngest son of the family patriarch Phil Robertson and his wife Kay Robertson, tweeted on Saturday, October 25.

"Earlier this week while deer hunting, Jep suffered from a seizure," the family said in a statement to E! News. "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."

Luckily, Jep was hunting with his brother Willie, who was able to get him to a local hospital for treatment. The cause of the seizure has not been determined.

"He is doing well now, but is still in the hospital 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," the statement added.

"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," the family continued.

Thankfully, the 36-year-old father of four is on the mend and is expected to make a full recovery.

Season seven of Duck Dynasty is set to premiere on A&E on November 19.
