    Default Hunting reading material, entertainment and thanks

    Hello Everyone;

    I am new to the forum and hunting, but I have been lurking for a while. I bit the bullet and joined recently to try and reach out and find myself a mentor of sorts, be it online or in the field. So far many people have been very welcoming and a couple local to me even willing to reach out; I would like to thank the community for that.

    In my pursuit of becoming a hunter, I have found myself constantly needing to 'scratch' the 'itch' to finally get out there and learn first hand. I am constantly 'consuming' different podcasts, certain tv shows and hunting/cooking focused books.

    I am worried i am going to run out in the future and was wondering if anyone had some recommendations?

    My favorites so far have been:

    Podcasts:

    The Joe Rogan Experience: Look for ones with guests like Steven Rinella, Remi Warren, Dan Dohtey, Cameron Hanes and that guy from the youtube channel 'knocked on tv'

    The meat eater podcast: host Steven Rinella

    Hunttalk: host Randy Newberg

    they are all american based, but its all great material with good information, stories and ethics mixed in.

    Tv Shows:

    Meateater: Steven Rinella

    Solo Hunter: its a bit of a youtube series for the first season or so

    Apex predator: Remi Warren (this one is kind of gimmicky and there is only 1 season, but its cool)

    Books:

    The complete guide too hunting, butchering and cooking wild game (parts 1 & 2): Steven Rinella

    The scavenger's guide to Haute Cusine: Steven Rinella

    Meat eater, A tale of an american hunter: Steven Rinella

    American Buffalo: Steven Rinella

    Cyote America: Dan Flores

    Hunt, Gather, Cook: Hank Shaw

    There is a bit of a theme there, Anything by Steven Rinella is just so well produced, written and agrees with/shapped my perspective on what hunting is and should be.

    Not entirely Hunting related but similar themes:

    "The Road" is a great post apocalyptic survival novel

    Robinson Cruesoe: A classic, i wish i had to read this in school

    Boone: a biography

    Eating aliens: about fishing for invasive species


    Has anyone else heard of some of these? what are some opinions? Recommendations?

    Thanks again everyone,

    Dude;

    I had things to do tonight... looks like they are going to have to wait until tomorrow.

    thanks so much these look great,

    Most of the things i posted are available online for free legally; any thing that isn't, is available through torrents (or so i hear)

    Looks like you like the bow hunt, have you seen any of the Cameron Hanes stuff? This is his first appearance on JRE, sets the rest of them up pretty good.

    Some authors Ive read are the Eberharts John and Chris and Steve Bartylla.

    Anything Joe Rogan you will want to collect. Put it all in a tight pile then light on fire to keep warm on a cold night. Steve Rinella is great entertainment but the hunts he does with Rogan and Callahan kinda degrade his character and are all organized hunts on QDM farms which is different than hunting most people experience. Just know that the videos and entertainment out there have more gimmicks than a copperfield act and eveyone is trying to sell you a product.

    Deer Wrastler: I am going to check out some of those authors on amazon tonight see what i can find. Thank you!

    I don't entirely disagree with your opinion with some of the Joe Rogan stuff. That being said; i would be lying if i said i don't listen to almost every podcast he puts out. You do need breaks sometimes as it can all get very repetitive and he can be super annoying, but he has a good mix of guests and really helps my day go by sitting at a desk or on a long highway drive.

    I find out of all of the people and content i listed that Steve Rinella is definitely the most legit out of the list. Most of the first episodes (season 1 & 2) are awesome. You can definitely feel the producer/mass appeal pull in a lot of the newer episodes. His books and podcast though i feel to be really genuine.

    Its way better than some of the Ted Nuggent garbage out there.

    In the end its all entertaining; i do find i get a much better connection and education from the books and podcasts as they are not as over produced.

    I enjoy both but I find bow hunting tends to have better videographers. Seen lots of Cam Hanes stuff and own his first book. Hes a cool dude, pretty extreme, but very dedicated.

    that is a lie.
    im a huge fan of the Joe Rogan Experience, and an even bigger fan of steven rinella.

    first episode with Joe rogan and brian callen was in the missouri breaks of montana, not QDM. Yes the second episode was the Driftless area of Wisconsin on a QDM farm, but it was obvious and they discuss this in all the podcasts and the show itself, it is an element of hunting that i am curious about and its a nice change from rinellas alpine hunts which i will likely never experience. They went on a turkey hunt in napa valley, and also prince of wales island blacktail hunting.
    not sure how you came to this conclusion, obviously you havent seen the episodes or listened to the many podcasts they have done together.

    not to sound like a fanboy. but Joe Rogan is a guy we want on our side. he is articulate, intelligent and open minded, and has a multitude of different guests on his podcast in regards to hunting and many other interesting topics. he gets up to 10 million listeners per week, that is more exposure than any other hunting related media could dream to have.
    just saying.

    Anything meateater is awesome!! he is my favorite hunting personality and his show is my favorite show of anything hunting or not.

    Cameron Hanes is cool, but he isnt too interesting to listen to over and over again as he doesnt have anything new to say and he talks crap about gun hunting and small game hunting all the time. I am also not a fitness nut, so that doesnt appeal to me quite as much as other hunting stuff. that said he is a great advocate for our sport and very inspirational and an all around good dude.

    solohunter is a great show, but again its all alpine hunts ill likely never get to experience.

    I dont have hunting TV, so dont have much to add, but i really want to see jim shockeys Uncharted. and i will definitely be checking out some of the links above.
    My name is BOWJ..... and I am a waterfowl addict!
