New Berlin, Wis. –( Rare is the day when Sportsman Channel’s Steven Rinella is bewildered and astonished about a hunting adventure. However, Part Two of a South American expedition accomplished that feat on MeatEater. The jungles of Bolivia present beauty, danger and educational experiences…all of which Rinella discovers first-hand. Tune into a journey that will not be forgotten on MeatEater – airing exclusively Thursday, February 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Different hunting environments and cultures can test outsiders and their patterns of thinking. The sustenance hunted by the indigenous tribes along the remote river systems defies Rinella’s hunting heritage and belief system. This trip has many inherent challenges; perhaps nothing more obvious than the language barrier. Viewers will be shocked to discover what is hunted and consumed on this episode, but MeatEater has never been a program to avoid experiential learning opportunities.

“I was initially troubled by what I saw in the jungle on this particular hunt,” said Rinella. “After   contemplating the situation, I soon realized we are all products of our own environment and who am I to judge what is hunted and consumed in different parts of the world.”

MeatEater premieres exclusively on Sportsman Channel on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
