Shout out for The Wild Within

There is a new series on the Travel Channel called The Wild Within and I watched the first episode the other day and it is now on my DVR record list.  It was impressive to say the least.

From the Wild Within Website
Author and outdoorsman Steven Rinella embarks on an exciting global adventure on the new Travel Channel series The Wild Within. As he explores the world's diverse cultures, Steven will reveal his deep conviction that within all of us, an instinctual hunter/gatherer is waiting to come out.

In each breathtaking episode, Steven uses his pioneer spirit, resourceful mentality and outdoor skills to explore the subcultures that cherish and maintain their hunting, fishing and gathering traditions.

Steven stays true to the tradition of sustenance hunting. Nothing that he harvests goes to waste, and he only pursues abundant species that are properly managed in order to protect their long-term ecological sustainability.

On The Wild Within, Steven explores crabbing in Alaska, searches for wild ingredients to make traditional pa'ina in Hawaii, gathers snails and other edibles in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and re-creates Lewis & Clark's original trek through the Missouri Breaks.

The Wild Within is a walk on the wild side. Steven Rinella will be your guide on a TV show where cliffs, claws and culinary arts come crashing together for the ultimate in adventure travel.

Watch the all-new season of The Wild Within, starting Sunday, Jan. 9, at 9 E/P.
Steve Rinella grew up in the outdoors of Michigan where he developed a deep passion for adventure and the outdoors.  Steve currently resides in New York with his wife and son but hasn't lost the desire to be outdoors so you can just imagine where this desire takes him.

As a boy growing up in the city and seeing what a passion for the outdoors does to you, there is no denying that Steven Rinella has the passion for the outdoors and adventure and after watching the first episode this looks like it will truly be a ride to enjoy and something I can relate to.

So mark your calendar and set your DVR because if the rest of the episodes are as good as his first, I'm sure it will become a regular for you.

    I loved the show, and have to say that when he had the misfire a sense of dismay went over me. Happened to me in 2000 when I was using my father's autoloader Remington. Fortunately, the next round paid off without spooking the buck.

  2. Good show!

    I agree with his outlook, that society has completely lost its connection and understanding of where its "meat" comes from.
