It really is amazing that meateater has been able to leverage itself into this type of organization.

Thinking back a few years ago when Steven was in charge of a lot of the day to day type stuff and it was pretty hit or miss on whether you could even buy a meateater T shirt because they were always out of stock online.

I don't think he is going to have any issues like that with the folks in charge of the day to day stuff now.

I think this is awesome that a guy that is just a great ambassador for the hunting community can focus on the big picture stuff now and get rewarded financially as well.
I'm a huge fan of Meateater, I own all of Steve's books, listen to all the podcasts and have watched every episode of his show...but my wife ordered me a hat from his website for Christmas with the meateater logo, and when it arrived it was just a plain camo first lite hat...between the two of us we sent them 4 emails over a 2 month period and still have never heard a response back...I know its a small thing but she was really excited to get me the hat and I was pretty upset with their lack of customer service on this issue.

If I shake hands with the President, run part of a billionaire's corporate structure, work out with a rock star and attend a birthday party that is packed with celebrities and sometimes fly first class and will happily hunt with guides and even pay for land access then what does any of that have to do with my ability to be a good person and work hard and still sometimes go on a public lands hunt on my own?
Sounds like you have a hard-core-hunter purity score of 1... lot of type 1 fun being had right there, not even sure I would give you the Michigan hello if I saw you probably just shake my head...

When the hell is meateater going to come out with some new shows? They made a big deal about moving to netflix a year ago and since then, nothing. No new content in a year; are they simply a brand now?

It's been 8 1/2 months. The last season, which was completely new content, was released on Oct 2, 2018 on netflix. This release came almost exactly 2 years after they released the last episode of the previous season in 2016.

Meateater released a full length film, Stars in the Sky, 5 months ago.

If anything it's impressive how fast the zero point zero team is churning out this high quality content, and how little patience everyone seems to possess.

Hey if you need your fix I got the first 1-4 seasons + the wild within on my google drive.


Also did you watch Stars in the Sky... if they don't release a season for another year that movie alone was worth it...

Love both brands.

Hopefully this means, and the article seems to suggest it will, that First Lite will carry my desired size and color pattern for more than just 2 or 3 months out of the year in in their store.

Wait till they buy stone glacier.
This honestly crossed my mind...I've been using SG since Kurt was loaning out demo packs from his house in 2012, don't do it SG :)
I know it's the progression of things, but I would die a little inside if it happened.
