The Avian-X cameras go inside Shelton’s annual Oklahoma Turkey Camp, which according to Shelton, is his tenth annual hunting trip with Matt Morett, co-host of Avian-X TV. But this time, Shelton also invited Food Network star and renowned chef, Guy Fieri, to join their flock.

“Everybody comes to camp with their own responsibilities and skill set. My skill set is I can cook – and yes, I had to cook, as there was no food here. I wasn’t sure what Blake intended for us to eat, but I have to feed the boys as we have to be up early tomorrow,” said Fieri.

“I’ve been a fan of Guy Fieri for a long time and having him in camp and eating his food was just unbelievable,” said Fred Zink, owner of Zink’s Calls and co-host of Avian-X TV. “He and Blake decided to have a turkey hunting competition so I paired up with Blake, which I think gave us the home field advantage and we don’t have to camouflage frosted, yellow hair like the other team did.”

Everyone gets a chance at the wary birds during the hour-long episode, but the truly unique time was between Shelton and Morett as they headed out for their annual hunt. “No doubt in my mind that Morett is a world champion turkey hunter. He’s a woodsman….and a master at calling in jakes…,” said Shelton with a smile.
