In 2015, Wild TV put out a casting call to find new hunting talent from across Canada. We were looking for individuals who showed the enthusiasm, skill, talent, and potential to be hosts of an all-new hunting television series. After the coast-to- coast search, we were excited to find 8 new hunters who were ready to show off their hunts and home towns. Canada Hunts is hunting at its most real, with all the trials, tribulations, and challenges that come with it. Whether young and old, veteran or inexperienced, hunters of any kind will find themselves on the edge of their seats following the journeys of these extraordinary Canadians.

Canada Hunts East - Canadian cuisine - Netflix
Canadian cuisine varies widely depending on the regions of the nation. The three earliest cuisines of Canada have First Nations, English, Scottish and French roots, with the traditional cuisine of English Canada closely related to British cuisine, while the traditional cuisine of French Canada has evolved from French cuisine and the winter provisions of fur traders. With subsequent waves of immigration in the 19th and 20th century from Central, Southern, and Eastern Europe, South Asia, East Asia, and the Caribbean, the regional cuisines were subsequently augmented.

While many ingredients are commonly found throughout Canada, each region with its own history and local population has unique ingredients, which are used to define unique dishes. Wild game of all sorts is still hunted and eaten by many Canadians, though not commonly in urban centres. Venison, from white-tailed deer, moose, elk (wapiti) or caribou, is eaten across the country and is considered quite important to many First Nations cultures. Seal meat is eaten, particularly in the Canadian North, the Maritimes, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Wild fowl like ducks and geese, grouse (commonly called partridge) and ptarmigan are also regularly hunted. Other animals like bear and beaver may be eaten by dedicated hunters or indigenous people, but are not generally consumed by much of the population. West-Coast salmon varieties include Sockeye, Coho, Tyee a.k.a. Chinook or King, and Pink. Wild chanterelle, pine, morel, lobster, puffball, and other mushrooms are commonly consumed. Canada produces good cheeses and many successful beers, and is known for its excellent ice wines and ice ciders. Gooseberries, salmonberries, pearberries, cranberries and strawberries are gathered wild or grown.
