Best new show out there. Love that guy. He televises a great show and adds a lot. Not your typical "Wohoo, will you look that buck" type of show.
Very good.

I agree with you and in reality, it’s the only hunting show that I have any desire to watch. I really enjoy and appreciate how he promotes hunting.

There is no stupid, fake yells, or acting. Plus, some of his hunts end up with him not taking an animal.

What is really interesting it is streamed globally.

Netflix has very good granular data on who watches the show and the show has been renewed multiple times.

I just watched the second episode of this season where he makes a bad shot on an elk. He is brutally honest with his feelings and efforts to find the wounded elk. Turns out another hunter finds it and seeks him out to show where it is. Very good and a very accurate depiction of an archery hunt that could have gone really bad.
I really like his show.

Ross,

I too like the show for multiple reasons but I really like its appeal to the DIY guy. Steve is not always successful and he often shoots an animals for meat rather than going home empty handed. I think that's relatable to many hunters. I certainly remember many hunts where I ate "track soup" or shot the first legal animals I saw.

It’s a good show overall, but I prefer the early episodes, before the corporatization, strategic partnerships and all the personalities that really don’t add all that much value. It’s a big boat to keep afloat now and is starting to feel like it.

Yep...the early stuff before the matching monkey suits, sponsorships, and “cool” lingo. At first it was like a regular Joe you could identify with, now its Hollywood’ed.


Can’t blame him though, he’s a brand now and a fellas gotta eat.

I really like his show.


In the current season he shoots an elk in Colorado. That one is not found. He lost his front sight the morning prior and gets a replacement in town.

I like his show over all. Cooking is still there, but he has stopped the cook tutorials at the end of the episodes which I like best.

I'm working through the back log of his Pod casts as well. I don't listen to music in the car anymore much to the wife's disgust Big Grin

He knocked that elk right down and off of its feet. The shot was longer than he wished (120 yards with the muzzleloader and a new back sight that maybe had not been carefully re-sighted-at least he didn't indicate that it had been). However, from the shot that was shown, I suspect a spine shot as it got up after a few minutes and left with little blood here and there. He didn't have enough time to reload and get another shot in it and was shaking-the reasons I carry quick loads for my muzzleloaders. Big Grin I've seen spine shots in Africa and the animal acts almost identical.

I believe the shot went high clipping a boney spine extension.

I am not blaming him. I was, for lack of a better word, impressed he showed it.

Exactly. That's what a spine shot is. Here's a great explanation from an archery website's perspective: "If an arrow hits the backbone but does not cut the spinal cord, the animal may drop from “spinal shock,” which is similar to hitting the “funny bone” in your elbow. ... The paralysis is temporary, and within a minute or so, the animal may get up and run away." Same with a bullet. As an example, while hunting Zimbabwe one year, I shot an impala for leopard bait that dropped like it had been struck by lightning. We walked over to it and while it was lying there and we were talking (PH, trackers, skinners, me), it opened its eyes, stumbled to it's feet and immediately ran off. All of us were so shocked that we stood there and watched all of this happen and didn't do a damn thing! Eeker rotflmo And, by the way, Rinella is brutally honest. Take the comment that he made about his tag was now 'punched', and no more elk hunting that season after that. He also comes across as being like one of your hunting buddies, rather than a star or celebrity.
