Watching a rerun on the travel channel. Is this guy legit? I've never heard of him before.

Well it seems pretty cool, a hunting show with a self sufficient guy. I hate the hunting shows with guides taking yuppies out trophy hunting.

This show kicks ass.

Here is an interview with Steve talking about the show.

Here is a blog he has with lots of hunting pictures, etc.

This really is a refreshing show. I like how it actually shows him cleaning and cooking the meat he takes. Very surprising to see from the Travel Channel.

I think its kind of odd he lives in a walk up in NYC yet is outdoors hunting guy.. Who travels to Alaska to fill his freezer. Talking about a stupid plan. It wouldbe cheaper for him to eat fresh lobster every day.

Scavengers Guide to Haute Cuisine by Steven Rinella ( the guy in the show) is a GREAT book.

From his website:
A rollicking tale of the American wild and its spoils, The Scavenger’s Guide to Haute Cuisine is at once an adventure in hunting and gathering and a visceral experience of the distance between ourselves and the food we love. After stumbling upon Auguste Escoffier’s 1903 culinary milestone Le Guide Culinaire, outdoorsman, avid hunter, and nature writer Steven Rinella embarks on an unusual quest: to procure all necessary ingredients for a forty-five-course meal, born entirely of Escoffier’s esoteric wild game recipes.

For one year, Rinella traverses the country assembling his feast—fishing for stingrays in Florida, flying cross-country to Michigan to obtain a fifteen-pound snapping turtle, and hunting mountain goats in Alaska. While in pursuit of his ingredients, Rinella encounters colorful characters, introduces his vegetarian girlfriend to the lifestyle and dishes of a huntsman, and comes to terms with the loss of his lifelong (if not culinary) mentor, his father. The Scavenger’s Guide to Haute Cuisine is a delicious, absorbing account of one man’s relationship with his family, friends, food, and, of course, the natural world.

Well I don't want to go takin the guys man card away, from reading the book thats what it seems like. I just wanted to convey that hey wasn't some writer that decided to get his hands dirty for a book. The dude is an actual outdoors guy, not sure why he lives in NYC though.
