This week’s episode is a special full INSIDE EPIC Meatcast! We chat with our Meat Sourcer, Kirk Blanchard, about getting stranded in the Arctic Circle while bowhunting the largest migration of Caribou in North America. Kirk grew up hunting and is an avid outdoorsmen, but there were challenges in the Arctic he’d never encountered before, including one of which that almost caused him to literally urinate on himself and another that forced him to ration food. Kirk also chronicles what it was like stalking caribou for over 10 miles for 15 hours a day and details the moment that would make or break his entire trip, as he was forced to make a hurried decision with a bull in sight.
This was supposed to be your standard INSIDE EPIC segment, but Kirk’s story was just so incredible we felt like it deserved an episode of its own! We spoke with Kirk before his trip as well, so if you’re curious about what his concerns were leading up to the trip, see the show notes below!
Keep your eyes peeled on the EPIC Instagram this week for an opportunity to Trick or Meat!
