The leading streaming platform has an amazing compilation of such shows. So, here’s the list of really good survival shows on Netflix that are available to stream right now.
7. MeatEater (2012)
Created by: Steven Rinella, Joe Rogan and Bryan Callen.
Netflix’s hunting series ‘MeatEater’ has managed to pick up a significant number of fan following ever since it was premiered as an experimental piece in 2012. ‘MeatEater’ takes us through the wilderness of outdoors, and as the title rightly implies, to the nuances of hunting anything from birds and animals for meat. The host, Steven Rinella travels the length and breadth of North American wilderness, hunting and cooking up a variety of living things on earth and sky.
‘MeatEater‘ isn’t just a hunting TV Show with some thrills, but a deep exploration of human nature, by pitting it against the wilderness. At the core of the series lies the most basic thing of human existence: survival. And Rinella’s adventures remind us of the everyday reality out there and the importance of our resources as a survivor.
