New Berlin, Wis. –( From the wilds of the Arctic to the jungles of Bolivia, this season of MeatEater takes viewers on an outdoor experience across international territories and through uninhabited locations in America. Season Six kicks off when Steven Rinella returns to one of his favorite hunting locations in America for a two-part series – Brooks Range in northern Alaska. The trip is far from ordinary as Rinella is dropped into a lakeside area for a 10-day moose and grizzly bear hunting trip. MeatEater premieres exclusively on Sportsman Channel on Thursday, January 8th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Primitive landscapes, wild adventure, secluded hunting and flavorful wild game cooking are all on the menu during this season of the awardwinning series with Steven Rinella. Additionally, the show welcomes back the comedic duo of Joe Rogan and Bryan Callen for an unpredictable and laugh-out-loud blacktail deer hunt adventure on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska.

The new season also features alternative wild game recipes from Rinella’s forthcoming book, The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game: Volume 1: Big Game.

“The sixth season of MeatEater has some of my favorite episodes so far,” said Rinella. “My hunt with the comics Joe Rogan and Bryan Callen on Prince of Wales Island is the funniest show we ever filmed. Our three-part series in Bolivia is big on adventure and bizarre food, including some taboo grub; and our Brooks Range moose hunt has all the heartache and triumph that you’ll be able to stand. It’s a fine body of work and I am proud to be a part of it.”

“Steven is a dynamic host and does a terrific job of reaching a broad range of viewers and makes them feel like a part of the journey,” said Marc Fein, executive vice president of programming and production for Sportsman Channel. “It’s always an exciting time of year when we unveil the new season of MeatEater. Every year, Steven and Zero Point Zero Production manage to cook up a new and wide array of episodes with incredible adventure, unique hunting locations and experiences. Season six is their best yet.”
