All Times Eastern*
BURGER COOKING SPECIAL – 5PM
As the prime cuts are often the first to go, most families are left with a freezer brimming with ground wild game meat. Pulled from the pages of his forthcoming “Wild Game Cookbook”, Steve shares a variety of recipes from burger to meatloaf and more – designed to whittle down this supply and jazz up your ground meat game.
GOBBLING: CALIFORNIA TURKEYS ROGAN AND CALLEN – 5:30PM
Last time Joe and Bryan went out with Steve they were soaked head to toe and came home meatless. To remedy their meat crisis while keeping them dry, Steve sets up a springtime wild turkey hunt in sunny California. Steve gives Joe and Bryan the A to Z on hunting, butchering, and cooking the wild turkey. Steve caps off the introductory lesson by preparing his favorite turkey recipe: Schnitzel.
SKY ISLAND SOLITAIRE: BACKPACK HUNTING COUES DEER IN ARIZONA – 6PM
Steve returns to southern Arizona to stalk one of his favorite quarry the elusive Coues deer. Unaccompanied, Steve immerses himself in the quiet southwest desert and gets intimate with one of the most wary animals in the west. Giant felines threaten the story but Steve stays on course and articulates why solo time in trophy country is good for the soul.
LOBSTER OF THE PRAIRIE: WYOMING ANTELOPE – 6:30PM
Steve is fed up with the disrespect the antelope receives. Bad hunting protocol, poor meat quality, it’s all a wives’ tale. Through the hunt Steve shares antelope biology, hunting techniques, and meat care. Steve aims to make antelope lovers out of everyone and get antelope the respect they deserve.
DEER THE HARD WAY: ROGAN AND CALLEN ON PRINCE OF WALES ISLAND – 7PM
Steve has been to Clover Lake before, but he feels he’s just scratched the surface exploring the surrounding country. The top of the mountain is always calling Steve’s name, and for this leg-stretcher he’s bringing along comedians Joe Rogan and Bryan Callen. Hunting Sitka blacktail deer introduces Rogan & Callen to their third species of North American deer. Laughs abound as Steve initiates Joe and Brian into some serious Alaskan backpack hunting.
COOKING SPECIAL: WILD TO TABLE: MEATEATER MEMORABLE MEALS – 7:30PM
Steve loves to fish as much as he loves to hunt. Steve is on a river in SW Montana for a day to catch some rainbow trout and cook a few over a fire. As fishing and campfire cooking offer time for reflection, Steve takes the time to recall a few memorable MeatEater meals. From caveman style sheep ribs in the Alaska Range to curiosity-induced coyote BBQ in Mexico, these meals give Steve the chance to explore what it means to be a MeatEater.
