“We are thrilled to have Michael Waddell join us at the Kansas Open Season Sportsman’s Expo,” said Chris O’Hara, Vertical Outdoor Director, Bonnier Events. “Bone Collector is a household name in the outdoor industry and has grown into so much more than just the TV show. Attendees will be both educated and entertained when they attend Michael’s seminar.”
Bone Collector began as a TV show and became one of the most recognizable brands in the outdoor industry offering television & production, licensing opportunities, marketing and more, all geared towards standing up for the culture of the hunter.
Waddell, who hails from Booger Bottom, GA, is a champion turkey caller. He began his career in the hunting industry by winning a Realtree turkey calling contest. Waddell then began guiding and filming hunts. The popular show, “Realtree Road Trips,” was born a few years later and has kept him busy ever since.
