Ryan Callaghan is MeatEater's Director of Conservation and a member of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, as well as a national board member. Ryan has been a passionate member of the outdoor community, having grown up hunting and fishing, guiding, and playing in the West.

Clay Newcomb is a 7th-generation Arkansan that grew up in the Ouachita Mountains. He's a hunter, mule skinner, curious naturalist, and observer of rural culture. He's also a writer, filmmaker, podcaster, and owner/publisher of Bear Hunting Magazine.

Danielle Prewett is the founder of Wild + Whole and a Wild Foods Contributing Editor for MeatEater. She is passionate about the outdoors because hunting, fishing, gardening, and foraging enable her to connect with her food and eat consciously. Texas is home for Danielle and when she isn’t in the kitchen, she can be found upland hunting with her bird dogs.

Brody Henderson grew up hunting and fishing in Pennsylvania. After college he moved to Colorado, where he worked as a fly fishing guide and writer. Brody has a passion for public lands hunting and fishing throughout the West. He has worked as a Wilderness Production Assistant for the MeatEater television show, and is a writer and MeatEater's Senior Editor.

Joe Cermele is MeatEater’s Senior Fishing Editor based on the East Coast. He has written several books and is the former fishing editor of Field & Stream and Outdoor Life. If it swims, Joe wants to catch it—and write, podcast, and shoot videos about it here at MeatEater.

Spencer Neuharth is the director of web content at MeatEater, producer of Wired to Hunt, and founder of Rut Fresh. His writing has been featured in over a dozen magazines, including Field & Stream, Petersen's Hunting, and Men's Journal.

Sean is originally from Iowa, but followed ducks to South Dakota—where he now calls home. Before joining MeatEater, he was a hunting guide, photographer, television producer, and writer. If you find him in the wild, chances are there’s water and waterfowl nearby.

Katie Hill is an assistant editor for MeatEater and a former freelance writer with a master’s degree in environmental journalism. Originally from Connecticut, Katie spent her first 22 years eating elk and venison from her dad's hunts before fleeing to Montana and kickstarting her own metamorphosis into a wordsmithing outdoorswoman. When she’s not wrangling sentences together, she’s slinging mud and dust on a trail run or back casting where she probably shouldn’t be. Follow her on Instagram and Twitter @hillllllyeah.
