HUNTING Exclusive: Joe Rogan Talks Hunting, Eating Meat, and Anti-Hunters

HUNTING Exclusive: Joe Rogan Talks Hunting, Eating Meat, and Anti-Hunters



If there's one thing that Joe Rogan is best known and respected for besides being the former host of Fear Factor, current UFC color commentator, and bonafide badass, it's standing up to blatant hypocrisy and kicking its ass into the ground. It was just two years ago that Rogan endeavored head first into hunting after joining Steve Rinella, from The Sportsman Channel's MeatEater, on a five day excursion in the Montana wilderness. That experience opened Rogan's eyes to the world of hunting and he embraced the lifestyle.


But, in doing so, he has taken on a whole new swath of ignorant and hypocritical opponents: anti-hunters. Where most high-profile celebs are hounded for hunting and shy away from lending their support, Rogan uses the opportunity to crush every rage-based hypocrisy he encounters.

We recently sat down with Rogan during a moose hunt in British Columbia to talk hunting, eating wild meat, and battling the anti-hunters. Check it out.
