MeatEater Season 7: Steve and Remi Navigate Afognak Brown Bears and Fog for Elk
On this hunt, Steve and Remi Warren travel to Alaska’s Afognak Island for a chance to hunt the largest Roosevelt elk in the world. It’s a hunt so challenging Remi swore he’d never return after his first trip to Afognak, but he's back to help Steve find a bull. Here, they’re met with giant brown bears, relentless rain and fog, and steep, brush-choked mountains. After securing a meal of fresh silver salmon, the two hunters embrace the challenge and eventually manage to locate some elk. To celebrate the hunt, Steve cooks up a unique feast using the caul fat and organs from a hard-won bull.
