WILDLIFE PROPERTIES was again the site of another successful hunt for the crew from the Pursuit Channel’s Posted Places television show. Country music singer and host of Posted Place TV, Kevin Blake Weldon returned to Smith County, KS to visit Wildlife Properties for a Rio Grande turkey hunt.
Nearing the third day of filming Kevin, along with Wildlife Properties’ Nick Rhodes called in a great looking Rio Grande turkey with a 9.25 inch beard and 3/4 inch spurs. The gobbler responded right away to the box call and it wasn’t long before he moved into range of the camera for a great shot. Later in the afternoon Kevin took another Rio. This time the gobbler was chasing around another hen turkey and after several hours of calling and stalking he finally had his shot. This gobbler measured out with an 11.5 inch beard and 1.25 spurs. Two great birds, two successful shots and tons of great footage for the show. Filming took place on Brook Wildlife Properties’ featured property Whitetail Haven, a 138 acre farm that has been specifically developed to enhance whitetail deer, turkey and upland bird habitat.
The Posted Places television show airs on the Pursuit Channel (DirecTV 608) and can be seen Monday’s at 12 p.m. EST and Tuesday’s at 6:30 p.m. EST beginning in July 2010. The show is hosted by country singer Kevin Blake Weldon and his pro-staff who travel around North America in search of game animals. Besides the TV show, Kevin Blake Weldon is a notable country singer and more recently has branched into country music comedy with his well know hunting parodies of popular country songs under the Bad Bob and Jimmy label.
This was Kevin’s third trip to Wildlife Properties in Smith Center, KS. Him and his pro-staff had previously filmed whitetail deer hunts during the fall of 2009 and the winter of 2010.
