Country singer Luke Combs and conservationist and TV personality Steven Rinella recently had a boys’ weekend in Wyoming, and there are pictures and video to prove it.
Earlier this month, Combs and Rinella went hunting near Douglas and managed to nab an antelope, according to Rinella’s Instagram account.
Rinella is the host of the television show “MeatEater,” a nonfiction hunting series that airs weekly on Netflix, but began life on the Sportsman Channel in 2012. It moved to the streaming service in 2018.
In the show, Rinella (and sometimes a guest who may or may not be famous) travel throughout the United States and all over the world on hunting trips. He discusses the importance of hunting and being a conservationist and shares some interesting ways to prepare and serve wildlife after the hunt.
“Got this nice buck in Wyoming while running around with @lukecombs,” Rinella’s post said. “We laughed our asses off and had some great stalks. He’s a damn fine gentleman.”
Combs responded in the comments, saying he had a “hell of a time” and thanked Rinella for the outing.
As a North Carolina native, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Combs is also an avid hunter. In addition to the hunt, the country singer also serenaded Rinella and others with an acoustic rendition of “This One’s For You.”
Comments on Rinella’s photo and video with Combs had people questioning whether or not this was a part of a new “MeatEater” episode, but only time will tell.
