    Top Notch
    The Meat Eater Podcast has a little bit for everybody. You don’t even have to be an outdoorsman to enjoy listening to these guys shoot the s*** with their amazing guests. It can be funny, informative, and interesting (among many other things).

    Political diversion
    Should have stayed put on bucks and bass, lost me on Steve’s political comments regarding the futile and inevitable impeachment

    Ensightful Podcast
    I had given up on hunting years ago because I had lost the value in it. I watched the show on Netflix then started listening to the podcast, Steve his his crew has given me a new perspective on wildlife and hunting and a renewed interest go get out in the woods and feed my family with natural lean meat.

    Highly intelligent and thought provoking fun!
    Excellent podcast that speaks to not just the “hows”, but more importantly the “whys” of hunting, along with critical issues for hunters to consider. Oh, it is often pretty hilarious, too!

    Podcast of All Trades
    I listened to this during many hours in the ND Badlands looking for elk in 2019. Steve, Janis and Co provided company in between the trailheads and camp. I learned everything from kitchen tips like osso busco with elk shanks (life changing), how to make egg nog, and the wonders of freezer paper. Field tips include gutless method, how to deflect a brown bear with a trekking pole, and taping the muzzle to prevent obstructions. The knowledge is deep and presented in an entertaining way. Brighten up your Monday morning by subscribing today to The MeatEater Podcast.

    Say no to Benny O.
    Love this podcast. Very informative, good content, good hosts, good guests. A lot better now that they don’t have Benny O’Brien on very often.

    Overall great podcast
    As someone who grew up in Hawaii and moved to Utah and trying to get into hunting I love this podcast there’s a lot of great information but you also give great perspective. You’ve inspired me to join a conservation group and look into public land so I can take advantage of it for myself.

    Best podcast
    The MeatEater podcast is the best I have ever listened to. The entire crew gives great advice as well as explaining events in such great detail to make you understand and feel as if you were present during the events. I also enjoy the guests they invite onto the podcast, always someone interesting and knowledgeable. The MeatEater team has and is changing the hunting, fishing, outdoor enthusiast and conservationist communities the right way with knowledge and insight. Thanks for making such great content.

    Back 40 equipment issues
    Love the show, podcasts, and new back 40 project. I’m a Michigan hunter from the Latvians hometown Kzoo. Given the fact that I’m a JD/Stihl dealer in West MI I could not resist offering equipment expertise after watching Mark struggle with that tow behind brush hog:). Just one more pull!! Managing property for hunting is a passion of mine but also way more fun with the proper equipment:) Can’t wait to see the property develop.
