Pro Guide Direct and MeatEater, a hunting television series on the Sportsman Channel hosted by Steven Rinella, announced the grand prize winner of ‘The Pro Guide Direct MeatEater Sweepstakes’ May 20 during the scheduled airing of the series.  Rob E., from San Antonio TX, was awarded the nearly $10,000 prize including a big game hunt for Rob and a guest with Steven Rinella in South East Idaho, three nights lodging, meals while on property, a Havalon Knife, and a Sitka Jacket.

“I can’t wait to hunt with Rob and his guest. The fact that he enjoys MeatEater means we have a lot in common. Obviously, we both love to hunt, and to eat the food that comes through hunting. We’re going to have a blast,” commented Steven Rinella.

Rob was randomly selected out of the nearly 30,000 entries that were also eligible to win any of 12 weekly giveaways consisting of hunting gear packages valued up to $499.  The weekly prizes included select gear used by Steven Rinella and partners of Pro Guide Direct, such as Vortex Optics, Sitka Gear, Kenetrek Boots, Havalon knives, Klymit, SOG knives and First Lite merino wool hunting apparel.  The sweepstakes was launched in February of 2012.

“This promotion was a vehicle we used to engage the outdoor community,” commented Pro Guide Direct Founder and CEO Fletcher White.  “We want enthusiasts to experience what experts and guides have to offer.  As stewards of our outdoor environment, we know that experts like Steven Rinella are in a perfect position to help the rest of us select the right gear, and not only have a great outdoor experience but also one that preserves the outdoors for generations to come.”

Conservation Organizations, Outfitters, Travel Companies and professional guides can all benefit their businesses by signing up for the Pro Guide Direct gear program.  For more information visit and for the latest gear recommendations and general outdoor awesomeness, visit our Facebook page at
