In “MeatEater,” author, hunter and outdoorsman Steven Rinella takes a walk on the wild side - where cliffs, claws and the culinary arts all come crashing together in one nail-biting adventure. In each episode, Rinella deconstructs and masters any hunting technique; tracks and pursues prey; and procures his own food… all culminating in a mouth-watering meal. Far from trophy or sport hunting, Rinella stays true to our ancestral tradition of sustenance hunting – nothing he harvests goes to waste. Whether tracking blacktail deer in the rainforests of Alaska or rooting out javelina in the deserts of West Texas, Rinella defers to his backcountry roots, challenging himself at every corner while providing an amazing adventure along the way.
