EP079: Bri Van Scotter with Wilderness To Table

Bri Van Scotter is a chef turned hunter. She did not grow up in a hunting family, her dad would go fishing and her mom was a pure animal lover. She used to villainize hunters for going out and killing such beautiful animals. 

As her career in cooking began to take off, Bri began learning about how other people ate and their diet choices. There was a wave were veganism was very popular, and she wanted to learn more about it. With that thought in tow, she became a vegan for 2 months to learn how to order at a restaurant and the struggles with it. It was this process that lead her to become a hunter.

Today we talk about it all. She tells us about her process of becoming a hunter through being a chef and how it has made her knowledge grow from learning about all animals around.
