'Dive deep into the backwoods of wild Kentucky with legendary woodsman Ernie Brown Jr – aka 'Turtleman' – as he takes on some of the most outlandish and outrageous nuisance calls the woods have to offer. Ernie is a charming animal lover with an unbelievable Bluegrass lifestyle, and for the past three decades, he's been diving into Kentucky's murkiest ponds in search of feisty snapping turtles capable of biting through bone. Each week, Turtleman receives calls from businesses and homeowners stuck with unwanted and potentially deadly pests. Never traditional but always effective, he uses pure instinct and his bare hands to go toe-to-claw with a variety of dangerous critters, but it's always for the animal's own good. With a trademark celebratory yell following each successful capture, Turtleman's selftaught trapping style allows him to safely reintroduce frisky critters to nature.'
YIYIYIYIYIYI! Call Of The Wildman aka Turtleman is an all-round enjoyable show to watch with some daring and colourful characters! Ernie Brown Jr (Turtleman), his dog Lolly, his trusty knife Thunder and his best friend Neal (AND sometimes Squirrel and Jake who take along) take off on two adventures each episode in order to save any critters, or any other animal for that matter from harm. Once successful, they relocate the animals to wildlife reserves where they can continue their lives safely without getting in the way of other people.
Snapping turtles, raccoons, possums, skunks, rats, snakes, cows - he's rescued them all, and mostly from the goodness of his heart. Poor Turtleman seems to be underpaid for the work that he does, but it just goes to show how much of a nature man he is. Growing up in the wild and learning from those around him has allowed Ernie to become a household name in Kentucky, right from when he caught his first turtle at the age of seven!
I couldn't recommend checking out this Turtleman DVD any higher. It's a nature program with a twist that has to be seen to be understood! Turtleman is certainly an inspiration to many people around the globe, and should definately be commended for the work he does to help save the lives of hundreds of animals. YIYIYIYI! LIVE ACTION!
