We are committed to protecting the rights of hunters and anglers while enhancing wildlife resources and public access to America's woods, waters, and mountains. We strive to encourage a strong conservation ethic among future generations of hunters and anglers; we support our veterans and first responders, and we help our local communities through the support of initiatives that align with our mission.

Current issues we are working to fight against are; landlocked properties that would otherwise be accessible to the public, creating accessible opportunities for the next generation of hunters and anglers, supporting our veterans, and giving back to our local communities. We are working to make additional impact this year by launching several new charitable opportunities for our workforce and audience to participate in through the MeatEater family of brands.
MeatEater’s Land Access Initiative is exactly what it sounds like, an initiative designed to raise money so we can find properties that will provide more access for regular folks to hunt and fish.
In 2020, the Rinella-Putelis 2020 Campaign and other Land Access Initiative fundraising efforts successfully raised enough money for us to help keep Shiloh Pond open to the public forever--see that story below.
In 2021, we opened the MeatEater Auction House of Oddities to further our fundraising goals. We auctioned off some gems from the MeatEater crew, our friends, and even some from our fans. We ended 2021 on a high note with hundreds of bids and a bunch of money raised for the Land Access Fund.
The Auction House will reopen for a two week run this April 2022. Stay tuned.
"Game On, Suckers!" is MeatEater's Trivia show in which employees and podcast guests alike compete in the name of conservation. The winner of each round donates their $500 prize to a conservation organization of their choosing.
