The Gear Lobo Challenge to Binge-Watch MeatEater

Carly Brasseux // September 8

Hunting is more than just the pursuit of an animal…Sometimes it’s an epic dream job too, right? Sometimes, you just have to binge every episode of MeatEater's Steven Rinella‘s hunting and fishing adventures (watch it on Amazon Prime!).

So, just how do you binge-watch every episode of MeatEater? Well, for me, it started with a challenge from Gear Lobo. They challenged me to watch every episode of MeatEater in 10 days. That’s 108 episodes, 8 seasons, and 41 hours – in 10 days! Challenge accepted!

Seasons 1-7 are available on MyOutdoorTV and you can see seasons 7-8 on Netflix, from your TV, computer, or phone. 

You have to have a Master’s degree in hunting and fishing to be chosen, so they picked me – just kidding of course!

The Gear Lobo MeatEater Challenge

Why would Gear Lobo challenge me to do such a crazy thing? Well, to pay tribute to tribute to one of the greatest hunting shows of all time and bring a little awareness to Gear Lobo! And I’d say mission accomplished!

How did this all work? While binging, I shared my thoughts and favorite parts on Twitter and InstaStories. I posted selfies binge-watching episodes, sharing funny scenes, OMG moments, and other good takeaways from each episode. At the end, after watching all 8 seasons, I ranked my top 3 favorite episodes.

My top 3 favorite MeatEater episodes:

As I watched each episode of MeatEater, there were a few that really stuck with me.

3. Season 7, Episode 15: When Doug Duren gets his caribou in Alaska, he is so emotional. It was a truly special and memorable hunt for him that all hunters can relate to.

2. Season 6, Episode 8: I loved watching two newbies get out for their first deer hunt. Helen and Brittany had hunted once before but hadn't been on a deer hunt. Brittany shot her buck, but it didn't die quickly. It was a very raw experience not only to see a hunter take their first deer but the sadness and fear of not getting a kill shot. To watch a deer not die quickly really makes you appreciate the life you take and the circle of life.

1. Season 4, Episode 3: The infamous moose charge was the best scene in TV history. No more words are needed on that one!
