MeatEater Host Steve Rinella Details Mental Effects Of Surviving Bear Attack

If you watch hunting shows, you’re undoubtedly familiar with MeatEater, hosted by hunter, outdoorsman, and conservationist Steve Rinella.

And if you’re familiar with Steve Rinella, you’ve probably heard the story of his trip to Afognak Island, and the Kodiak brown bear that came barreling through their camp.

Long story short: Steve Rinella and a crew of hunters were posted up for lunch when a massive 11 and half foot Kodiak brown bear came tearing into the camp. Miraculously, nobody was harmed, but their camera man did end up riding the bear for a ways down the mountain.

But for Rinella, surviving the attack still haunts him to this day.

Listen to this crazy story on a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience.

Here’s Remi Warren’s account of the story as well.
