New Berlin, Wis. –( The hunt for Alaskan black bear continues as Navy SEAL Commander Rorke Denver joins Steven Rinella, host of Sportsman Channel’s MeatEater, in the Alaskan range. The men chose vastly different career paths, but through hunting and writing they are brought together in hopes of discovering a bruin worth harvesting. The two-part MeatEater finale concludes Thursday, September 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT exclusively on Sportsman Channel.

Rinella and Denver’s differences span from their career choices to how they hold a rifle, a fact more evident than ever after the men spend a week on the hunt for an Alaskan black bear. Denver, a tactically-trained Navy SEAL and Rinella, a skilled hunter, though vastly different, connect through an incredible hunting experience.  Brought together by the outdoors, it isn’t long before the men have a sense of camaraderie. The only thing missing is the one aspect of the hunt the men are still pining for most – a black bear.

“While hunting with Rorke, I couldn’t help but consider the wildly different paths people can take,” said Rinella. “Rorke chose the path of a war hero, one that he knew would absolutely lead him to dark and dangerous places from which he might not return. I chose something different, safer, more fun, and with more freedom. But it’s not as rewarding and damn sure not as selfless.”

Tune in to the conclusion of the two-part MeatEater finale Thursday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Sportsman Channel.
