HUDSON — Richard Blakeslee, owner of Triple Creek Outfitters near St. John, has put more than 17 years into building a business out of his passion for hunting and fishing and all things outdoors Kansas.
With a multi-faceted operation that offers other hunters everything from entertainment to housing in south-central Kansas, one might think Blakeslee has achieved his goals. A recent expansion to the business, which is now on three different television shows featuring hunting land in five counties, shows that the sky, or the next hunting season, seems not to have any limits for the outdoors enthusiast.
“For 20 plus years ago I guided with bird dogs with other hunters,” Blakeslee said. “I always wanted my own business. Love for outdoors, bird dogs, is what got me doing it. I like to share my passion with others.”
Triple Creek Outfitters opened a new 6,000-square-foot hunting lodge located near Hudson,
