MeatEater ( x 30′) – Author, hunter and outdoorsman Steven Rinella creates mouth-watering fireside meals after an exciting hunting expedition.
Growing up in the Midwest’s great outdoors – hunting, fishing and trapping from a young age – Rinella has always viewed the world through the eyes of an ancestral hunter/gatherer. Entranced by early man’s skill, ingenuity and sheer determination to survive and thrive under challenging circumstances, Rinella has made it his life’s work to cultivate those same qualities – and encourage people to recognize it in them. Raising a family and working as a writer in New York City, Rinella is an effective ambassador of the sportsman’s lifestyle to urban and suburban audiences.
In MeatEater, Rinella will deconstruct and master any hunting technique; track and pursue prey; and procure his own food. Whether tracking black-tail deer in the remote Alaskan wilderness, or rooting out Javelina in Texas, Rinella will defer to his back-country roots, challenging himself at every corner while providing nail biting adventure along the way.
MeatEater will showcase Rinella hunting Black Bear in Alaska to tracking a Mountain Lion in southern Arizona. But Rinella can also bowhunt as he proves when he goes after Javelina in west Texas. Plus, he joins a biologist friend on a riverboat through some of the most untouched wetlands in Alaska for big-time duck hunting.
Each episode ends with Rinella preparing the day’s harvest for a mouth-watering meal.
