David Blanton has been an integral part of Realtree's video efforts since he started in 1991 as video production manager. He has served as executive producer of Realtree Outdoors since the show premiered on TNN in 1993. The popular show moved to ESPN2 in July 2004 after more than a decade on TNN. Blanton is also executive producer of Realtree's popular Monster Bucks video series. He has earned a solid reputation throughout the hunting industry as someone who knows the ins and outs of videotaping and harvesting trophy bucks, turkeys and other wildlife. His countless hours in front of and behind the camera have taught Blanton how to be consistently successful on whitetail and other big game across North America.
Blanton is an accomplished hunter who gets a thrill out of hunting with a bow, rifle or muzzleloader. If you've ever wanted to find out where to go for exciting hunts - or if you just want a tip or two that will make you a better hunter - he's always glad to share his experiences with anyone who has a passion for hunting.
Blanton resides in LaGrange, Georgia, with his three sons, Harman, Alex and Lucas.
