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.

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.

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.
