Steven Rinella’s “MeatEater” Premieres New Season on Outdoor Channel


DENVER (Ammoland.ComMeatEater with Steven Rinella has been a perennial favorite with Outdoor Sportsman Group viewers since its debut six years ago. As Rinella eloquently puts it, the show is not just about the pursuit of an animal, but who Rinella is as a person and what he’s made of to pursue that animal. MeatEater returns to Outdoor Channel with an all-new season on Monday, September 9 at 9 p.m. ET.

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. Inspired by early man’s skill, ingenuity and sheer determination to survive and thrive under challenging circumstances, Rinella has made his life’s work to cultivate those same qualities – and encourage others to do the same – while always being mindful of conservation principles and practices.

In MeatEater, Rinella explores various hunting techniques, tracks and pursues prey, and procures and cooks his own food. Whether tracking blacktail deer in the remote Alaskan wilderness, or rooting out javelina in Texas, Rinella leverages his back-country skills, challenging himself at every corner while providing nail-biting adventure along the way.

Steven Rinella is an avid outdoorsman, writer, and television personality best known for his ability to translate the hunting lifestyle to a wide variety of audiences. His weekly MeatEater podcast (distributed on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify and Stitcher) is the most popular podcast in the outdoor category on Apple. He is the author of six books including: “MeatEater: Adventures from the Life of an American Hunter;” the two-volume series: “The Complete Guide to Hunting;” “Butchering and Cooking Wild Game;” “American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon;” “The Scavenger’s Guide to Haute Cuisine” and the forthcoming “MeatEater Fish and Game Cookbook: Recipes and Techniques for Every Hunter and Angler” (Nov. 20, 2018). His articles have appeared in publications such as: Field and Stream, Men’s Journal, Outside, Men’s Health, The New York Times, Bowhunter and the anthologies Best American Travel Writing (2003, 2010, 2014 and 2016) and Best Food Writing (2005, 2013). He is a frequent guest of television and radio, has appeared on NPR’s All Things Considered and Weekend Edition, The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, Fox and Friends and CNN’s American Morning.

I will be impressed when I see one of these actors pick up a pick or shovel and do at least one honest day’s work on wildlife habitat. The problem with “outdoor media” today is it never speaks of the most critical component of the North American Model of Wildlife Management: habitat mitigation. That involves actual work. Animals and fish do no fall from the sky. They are the product of decades of hard manual labor and loads of money spent by volunteers who actually put the food, water and cover in the habitat. The sad thing is I was… Read more »

I won’t support Peter Chernin’s “MeatEater”, or his FUDD lackey Steve Rinella. “Peter Chernin, an anti-gun Democrat who called for a federal ban on semi-automatic rifles, purchased the popular MeatEater. Chernin, who has donated nearly $500,000 to Democratic candidates and causes since 2015, has repeatedly attacked gun rights and Second Amendment activists over the last year. He retweeted comedian Michael Ian Black’s attack on the National Rifle Association as a “terrorist organization” and a separate Hollywood personality’s attempt to force FedEx and Visa to sever their ties with the NRA. In addition to endorsing calls for a ban on so-called… Read more »
