â€œDirty Jobsâ€ â€“ Premieres Sunday, November 6, at 10 PM ET/PT
A farmer’s cows mysteriously are attacked while cooling off in a stock pond and emerging with missing udders. All signs lead to a group of snapping turtles, and Ernie is happy to jump on the case; however, there’s a catch. The stock pond is overflowing with cow manure and bacteria. Can Turtleman show no fear, find the hungry turtles and restore peace to the farm? Then, a rabid raccoon overruns a local business and isn’t happy when Ernie shows up. Ernie corners the creature in a small utility closet and wrestles it with all his might while avoiding its sharp teeth and nails. One bite can send Turtleman to the hospital and put him out of business. Later, Turtleman discovers he has a nuisance problem of his very own when evidence of a mouse infestation mounts inside his home.
â€œGroundhog Dayâ€ â€“ Premieres Sunday, November 6, at 10:30 PM ET/PT
Turtleman meets his match against a critter with the perfect defense against his barehanded tacticsâ€”the skunk. Barricading himself beneath layers of armor is Turtleman’s only chance if he wants to escape the noxious fumes of the trigger-happy skunk. Later that day, Turtleman visits a local farm where he hears the legs of mules snapping like twigs. The likely culprit– groundhogs burrowing just beneath the stables. Showing no fear, Turtleman tunnels underground to smoke out the stubborn rodents.
â€œPossum Poltergeistâ€ â€“ Premieres Sunday, November 13, at 10 PM ET/PT
A local radio DJ invites Turtleman on his show to share his legendary talent with the world. The radio host challenges him to venture deep into the haunted woods of Kentucky to evict a school of venomous reptiles and rabid rodents, and Turtleman sets out on a wild adventure to protect his bluegrass name and legend. It only gets worse when he’s called to exorcise an evil spirit from a horrified family’s attic.
â€œThe Hunt for Jurassic Turtleâ€ â€“ Premieres Sunday, November 13, at 10:30 PM ET/PT
Deep in the ponds of backwoods Kentucky lurks the infamous Jurassic Turtle, an 80-pound monster straight out of the pre-historic era. Turtleman had a brush with this noble beast when he was just 16- years old but wasn’t able to successfully capture it. Little did he know then that the encounter would begin a three-decade quest for his greatest obsession. Now, after 30 years of searching, Turtleman believes the Jurassic Turtle is finally within reach. Later, Neal receives a call from a farmer who reports a hungry hog that’s eating all of his cash crops. If Turtleman can’t chase it down and banish it from the property, the farmer risks losing both food and money before the harvest.
â€œFort Rattlesnakeâ€ â€“ Premieres Sunday, November 20, at 10 PM ET/PT
Encroaching wildlife threatens the existence of two of Kentucky’s most cherished historical landmarks, and only the state’s most skilled animal rescuer can save them. Turtleman encounters a vicious raccoon at a 150-year-old trading post and must remove the creature without damaging the historic structure. It’s man vs. beast, and whoever makes the first mistake decides the future of one of the last standing stores of its kind. At Fort Logan, the slightest misstep could be Turtleman’s last as he tracks down and captures a rattlesnake that has forced the outpost to close its doors to the public.
â€œThe Turtles of Alcatraz Pondâ€ â€“ Premieres Sunday, November 20, at 10:30 PM ET/PT
Turtleman awakes to see his beloved outhouse destroyed by an overnight storm. But the rebuild needs to wait when he receives news that one of his top rescue ponds is scheduled to be bulldozed in a matter of hours. But this isn’t just any old rescue pond. Nicknamed â€œAlcatraz,â€ it’s where Turtleman has released the 12 most ferocious snapping turtles he ever has encountered. Now, he has no choice but to dive in and risk his life to save his friends, with convicts including â€œDeputy Stub Tale,â€ â€œGospel Johnâ€ and â€œTiger,â€ a monster snapping turtle that Turtleman spent hours wrestling years ago. Later, Neal, Turtleman’s right-hand man and secretary, receives a nuisance call from a 90-year-old woman who has been frightened out of her home by a potentially venomous snake.
