‘Man Eats Wild’

Restaurateur Mario Kalpou fuses his love of cuisine and the outdoors in Man Eats Wild. Follow along as the Australian adventurer harvests wild food in some of the world’s most rugged environments. Whether he’s bow hunting Cape buffalo in South Africa or reeling in giant trevally off the shores of the Seychelles, Kalpou takes aim at a dangerous new meal every episode.  


Feral species? Fine cuisine? An unlikely duo, to be sure. But famed chef Yia Vang shows how being resourceful can be flavorful in Feral. Tag along as Vang chases, kills, cooks — and, of course, eats — invasive species. Whether it’s Burmese pythons in Florida’s Everglades or axis deer in the Texas Hill Country, Yang finds delicious in the unexpected. That’s a win-win for the ecosystem and the tastebuds.  

‘Farming the Wild’

Acclaimed restaurateur Mike Robinson, whose portfolio of iconic U.K. establishments includes the Michelin Star-rated Harwood Arms, brings his love of the great outdoors to the table in Farming the Wild. Grab a front-row seat as Robinson hunts and gathers sustainable food across the U.S. and U.K. — everything from gators in Florida to pigeons in the English countryside. 

‘Nick’s Wild Ride with Nick Hoffman’

Nick’s Wild Ride with Nick Hoffman stretches the bounds of your traditional hunting and fishing outdoors shows. Each episode, Hoffman leads viewers on a dive into the culture, history, music and food of locales he chooses for his hunting and fishing adventures. A man of many passions, Hoffman is best known for wielding the fiddle as part of the country music trio The Farm. 

‘The Sporting Chef’

Best-selling cookbook author and chef Stacy Lyn Harris shows us how to turn anything with “furs, fins and features into delicious fare” in The Sporting Chef. Harris, who took over as host of this long-running show in 2022, teaches you all the tips and tricks you need to turn your wild game from the field into flavorful fare for your kitchen table.
