Known for his ability to translate the hunting lifestyle to a wide variety of audiences, Rinella will present a talk "Hunting for Food: An Ancient Path through Modern Life".

Underneath, he is a serious journalist, incisive observer, and defender of the wilderness.

Olson Nature Writing Award and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award. is writing has appeared in a wide variety of popular publications including Outside, The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Salon.com, besides traditional hunting and fishing publications like Field and Stream, Bowhunter, and the National Rifle Association's American Hunter online.


Currently, he is on the editorial staff of Petersen's Hunting, where he writes a monthly column. In 2011, Rinella hosted The Wild Within on the Travel Channel. In 2012, Rinella began on his new show "Meat Eater" on the Sportsman Channel. He was born in Twin Lake, Michigan, and has lived in Montana, Wyoming, and Alaska. He currently resides in New York and maintains a moldy hunting and fishing shack in southeast Alaska.
