It’s been over 10 years since The Turtleman video was filmed and it’s still entertaining. Ernie Brown Jr. became famous when this video was featured in 2009 on Kentucky Afield. His crazy ability to catch massive snapping turtles enthralled the world. Animal Planet’s “Call of the Wildman” aired for four seasons before it was taken off the air. Despite the dramatization, the show created The Turtleman is the real deal.
