The Turtle Man is a local and state legend here in Kentucky. He's also been gaining some national attention from doing radio shows and he even got a shout out on CNN from some soldiers. The Turtle Man is a growing phenomenon.
I've heard a lot about the Turtle Man and seen some videos he's been featured in but I had the pleasure of meeting Ernine Brown, Jr. on Saturday afternoon.
I almost left without getting a picture or autograph from the legend but I remembered to get a snap shot before I left. Here's me and the Turtle Man. He's got big guns to go along with his rebel yell. Also notice the snapperlicious shirt in the background.
Make sure you visit his site, www.turtle-man.com. Buy a shirt while you're there and check out his videos. I promise you've never seen anything like it.
Despite the fame, Ernie's a great guy and really in touch with nature. He's had pets of all sizes (squirrels & deer) and he uses the catch-and-release method most of the time while hunting turtles. You won't meet a better person.
Good luck Turtle Man.
