Author and hunter Jackson Landers unexpectedly comes from a vegetarian household. It’s unexpected because Landers is making a career for himself as one of the most prolific meat-eating enthusiasts and as a champion of hunting. He particularly specializes in making delicious meals from “alien” catches: those weird-looking, often feral or invasive species. He has great recipes for Canada geese, iguana, lionfish, feral hogs, snakehead, and so on.
An upcoming documentary by Helenah Swedberg slated to be released this fall, Close to the Bone, explores Landers’s pioneer, but oftentimes controversial work battling invasive species and promoting hunting to adult beginners. Watch the indiegogo campaign preview here (donations are already closed).
Editor’s note: This article originally referred to Landers as the maker of Close to the Bone. This was incorrect, Helenah Swedberg is in fact the producer and director of the film. The article has been changed to correct this.
