Modern Carnivore Experience
Start Eating Meat Responsibly

Interested in local sustainably harvested food? Ready for a new adventure? Join other like-minded individuals at the Modern Carnivore Experience. This half-day retreat will introduce you to what hunting and fishing is all about and why it's not too late to start down the path of these rewarding activities.

Questions?...just shoot as a note at and we'll be happy to answer them.


Special Offer! The next five people that join the MN Chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers will receive FREE admission to the retreat.


From the adult-onset hunter and angler, to the life-long advocates, you'll hear stories of adventure and have the opportunity to ask questions like "Isn't it too late for me to learn to hunt or fish?" or "What's the first step I need to take?"
