Top 10 Best Hunting Shows

1. Meat Eater

Where to watch:

  • Netflix
  • YouTube
  • MyOutdoorTV
  • Amazon Prime
  • Sportsman Channel

MeatEater is, as the name suggests, a great show for people who fantasize about hunting and eating anything, from squirrels and catfish to ducks and moose. This has got to be the most popular, or at least the most trendy, hunting show that is currently running.

The host, Steven Rinella, is the real deal. He’s a hunter, environmentalist, and experienced shooter. Not to mention a pretty darned good cook. He also has managed to appeal to a lot of non-hunters in a reasonably positive way. Personally, I appreciate his perspective on hunting ethics and conservation.

2. The Hunting Public

It’s hard to pick just one, but I’d have to go with The Hunting Public’s YouTube video series for my personal favorite of the best hunting shows. I’ve been binging on their turkey tour videos as I’ve been getting into turkey hunting myself lately.

These videos are authentic and combine useful tips with laid-back hunting stories and experienced hunters. You can find how-to videos and real hunt logs, plus many funny moments that are completely unscripted.

3. Alone

Where to watch:

  • Netflix
  • Hulu
  • History Channel
  • Amazon Prime

While this is not a dedicated hunting show, they bowhunt and trap in every episode. Moose, musk ox, snowshoe hare, and squirrel hunts abound. Of all the reality TV competions out there, I find this one not only tolerable, but intriguing. One man or woman living alone in the Arctic for as long as possible.

If you haven’t watched it, try it! They film everything themselves and they have to hunt, gather, and fish to survive. No hoaky music, no fancy cinematography, no outfitter trophy hunts, no staged stunts. Just raw nature and bushcraft skills.

4. Primos TRUTH About Hunting

Who says that hunting has to be serious all the time? Primos TRUTH About Hunting is excellent because it combines solid hunting tips with a healthy dose of humor.

Part of the charm is that the show is presented as-is, with no edits or staged hunts. It’s a lot like a YouTube channel. The Primos boys hunt turkeys, waterfowl, giant bucks, and elk along the banks of the Mississippi.

5. Adrenaline

  • Amazon Prime

If you love whitetail hunting, then this is a must-see show. There’s nothing like the thrill of hunting massive fair chase whitetails in rugged terrain. Don’t expect perfect hunts every week.

This realistic show highlights crushing failures just as much as incredible successes. Plus, hosts Linda Sanchez and Kyle Wieter are a blast in the wilderness.

6. Game of Inches

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hunt big game on the other side of the world? Game of Inches takes you to incredible locations with host Justin Olk hunting unbelievable trophies, from bears to big cats. It’s less of an average Joe hunter show and more of a more bucks for your bang show.

7. North American Whitetail

The North American Whitetail magazine was the go-to place to find deer hunting guides for beginners and pros. Now, NAW TV shows the same in-depth tips and advanced deer hunting techniques up close and personal. NAW TV is also available on the Sportsman Channel.

8. Crush With Lee & Tiffany

Are you looking for a hunting show for the whole family? This true-to-life fan favorite follows the Lakosky family and their Labrador retrievers as they hunt challenging game.

It’s life, love, and the outdoors all rolled into one. If your significant other always fight with you over the remote, this show is one they’ll get into.

9. Bow Life TV

Archery lovers have to check out this fantastic show about world-class bow hunters Samantha and Levi Morgan. The show covers top competitions in North America and techniques for bow hunting in the wild.

10. HeadHunters TV

Where to watch:

  • Outdoor Channel
  • MyOutdoorTV
  • Amazon Prime

This show is a mixture of hunting adventures and reality television. It’s just as much about the personalities of Randy and Nate as the backwoods hunts they get into.

From New Mexico to Montana to Texas, these boys are always on the road. This isn’t the best show to improve your hunting techniques, but it’s a lot of fun.

Best Hunting Shows on Netflix

Sadly, there’s only one real hunting show on Netflix worth your time, MeatEater. But while it might be a bit of a stretch, I’m calling Alone a hunting show too. Besides these, there are a few related competitions and reality TV series that, personally, I find less than interesting.

TV Channels With The Best Hunting Shows

You don’t always need a streaming service to catch the best hunting shows on TV, but you may need cable or satellite. Check out these networks dedicated to hunting and outdoor life.

Sportsman Channel

This is one of the best hunting channels available anywhere, period. It’s offered in many cable TV bundles and satellite packages. It’s outdoors living 24/7, with shows dedicated to hunting of every type, fishing, wildlife, and conservation.

Outdoor Channel

Another stellar channel for wilderness living, the Outdoor Channel, features some of the best hunting shows with authentic tips. The full lineup of shows is huge, covering wild boar, small game, big game, waterfowl, bird hunting, and a lot more.

Pursuit Channel

What’s great about this cable TV channel is the number of shows it has that go into detail about hunting gear. You can learn a lot about rifles, bows, sights, and other gear to improve your hunts. If there’s one show you watch every week, make it Deer & Deer Hunting TV. It’s full of expert tips.

PBS

PBS can be hit and miss when it comes to hunting show, but at least it’s free! Just tune in the rabbit ears at 8 pm or so on Saturday night and you’ll probably either get the Red Green Show or something like The Outdoorsman with Buck McNeely. The lineup depends a lot on the state you live in. Also, PBS has a strict policy against advertising on the network, which caused it to pull the great Michigan Out-of-Doors TV for a time.

More Hunting Shows You Can Stream

Streaming via Roku and other devices can open up a world of hunting for you to watch. Some of the best hunting shows I’ve ever seen are available on YouTube. MyOutdoorTV, and The Hunting Channel Online also offer some cool content. complete with how-to guides that make sense for everyday hunting enthusiasts.

Every serious hunter needs to watch at least The Hunting Public, Bone Collector, Under Armour Hunt, Stone Glacier, and Midwest Whitetail. I also love Fresh Tracks and Hushin.
