Bri Van Scotter

Hunter, Chef, Spearfishing

Hi There! I’m Bri, a chef who turned into a hunter to source the purest form of proteins possible! In a world full of GMO’s, binders and fillers and turned to mother nature to provide me with food that was intended for our bodies. I started hunting and spearfishing for my food. As a professionally trained chef, I have worked in some of the United States most prestigious restaurants. When I started hunting I noticed a lack of wild game recipes, so I created Wilderness to Table, my web-site dedicated to chef inspired wild game recipes. Since then my little website that was meant to highlight the beauty of wild game has been turned into a tv series that can be found on Amazon and iTunes. I write for magazine, do public speaking about self-harvesting, and have two cookbooks in the works, the first book is set to release this Fall 2020. When I’m not hunting or cooking you can find me doing practically any outdoor activity, working out and traveling the world!

What motivations you in the morning?

A matcha latte and an early morning workout!

What is your mantra for when things are tough?

All situations are temporary, and this too shall pass.

If you could do anything else, what would it be and why?

Veterinarian off in Africa somewhere saving exotic animals. I’d love to help animals that have been harmed from human footprints.

Describe your best moment ever

Freediving eye to eye with a whale shark! It was the most beautiful peaceful moment in the world. I watched the whale shark look at me and we just swam together, it’s something I will never forget!

How did you get into your profession?

I became passionate about food, sourcing my food and how food can heal your mind, body and spirit. Cooking & the outdoors was my escape and happy places, so I turned those into my career!

What is the best piece of advice you've ever receieved?

The things you are most afraid of are usually the most worthwhile. Everything I was afraid of I took a leap and forced myself to do it, and every time I have, I’ve absolutely never regretted it!

What are your top three Pelican products?

1. The Dayventure Backpack Cooler! I take it everywhere, especially during the summer, its hands down my favorite Pelican piece.
2. The Pelican Bow case! I travel a lot to hunt and with the Pelican bow case I never have to worry about sighting in my bow on location because it’s so well protected.
3. The Pelican 1605 Air Case with the Photography insert. This case has been through so much and I never have to worry about my camera gear and it’s so organized it makes my OCD very happy! Lol!
