I tried softshell turtle for the first time just last week. I won't be throwing them fools back any more, any bigger than dinner-plate size are coming home now.

I kept the cookery real basic, I just cut all the meat off the bones, cut it in small chunks, and browned them in a skillet with a little olive oil, and salt&pepper. My idea there was to give it every chance to fail, if it wasn't worth eating when cooked that simple, getting any fancier would just be polishing a turd.

It wasn't bad. It didn't blow me away, but I ate every bit of it, and definitely plan on eating it again. It had a chewy texture, kinda like frog legs, but closer to chicken than fish. I'll probably try it in a crockpot with carrots, taters and onions next.

Meat Eater was the 1st hunting show I ever sat down with intent to watch one. Now that I have the pursuit channel, I appreciate Meat eater a lot more.

My Granddad was an avid coon hunter all his life, invariably he would get a possum from time to time. He would bring it home, stick it in a cage and feed it chicken scratch for a few weeks. Once it was all plump he would slow roast it, I ate it. Been so long I don't remember how to describe it, but I didn't have to choke it down. So it must have been palatable.

That's what I like, he doesent talk about his gear. It's obvious he is sponsored by vortex, but he has not made any mention of his rifle, calibers, his yeti ice chests, how long of a shot he made, etc.

That's what makes it refreshing

The only time I can vividly him talking about distance was on the episode when he was hunting whitetails in Arizona. All he mentioned was the shot was just about his max distance for shooting.

I am a fan of Steven Rinnella. The show is very good and his books are excellent.

Possum is actually pretty good eating, but you really have to watch for cars.
“He grouped his last five shots right in the center of the bull’s-eye. Then I showed him my technique of scattering shots randomly around the target because, as I explained, you never know which way the deer might jump just as you pull the trigger.”

Great show, his hunting/processing beliefs differ probably from the majority on this forum, including mine, but his message is true.

His podcast with the stone glacier boys is spot on!! His comments are pretty direct but true. Kurt and Pete are real deals from a mountain perspective

I like shows that actually teach you something. When you can learn something from watching it to me that is the whole reason I am watching.

He is definitely explaining his strategy and talking about how he is approaching an animal and I like that about his show.

The Deer Society (advertisement for the extinguisher call) is also an excellent TV program and I have learned more about deer and deer behavior from watching that show and watching their videos online. I am hooked on that type of programming. In my opinion there is no more informative hunting program.

Definitely my favorite hunting show. I really enjoy his books and podcasts too. Like some above said, I don't agree with him on everything, but he does seem to think things through and really contemplates the various issues facing hunters and hunting.

Meat Eater is very good but my favorite is our very own Gary Roberson's Carnivore.

I only watch Meat Eater and Benny Spies. I enjoy watching Rinnela hunt and cook and Benny is just funny.

I have learned a heck of a lot from Carnivore also. How you sit and your set up is something I remember him talking about a few weeks ago. very informative. I really like the coyote shows. My kind of hunting.

I have been watching some of his older episodes on netfix. I really like his episode on dove hunting and hog hunting. He is a world class hunter, but new to texas hog and virginia dove. He asked a lot of questions, admitted his lack of knowledge, made fun of himself, and learned a lot.

That tells me that he is professional. He can run circles around most hunters, but when he is doing something new, he shows respect, he is humble, eager to learn and give credit where credit is due.

One of the few hunting shows I let me kids watch.
