Who Is Remi Warren?
Remi Warren is an adventurer, conservationist, author, and television personality, known for bringing the hunting and outdoor lifestyle to a wider audience. He has served as a professional guide and outfitter for over 12 years, working across the United States and other countries.
He has completed multiple high mountain solo hunts in the wild that lasted over 30 days. He has also hosted two outdoor television shows called Apex Predator and Solo Hunters. He is also the first and the only person to self-film a successful mule deer hunt with a conventional bow. Warren also serves as an author and field editor for Western Hunter Magazine.
He has been married to Danielle since 2018, and the couple has a daughter named Lucy.
Born in Nevada, Warren has been going to the mountains since a very young age, learning about nature and animals. According to him, he had always pushed himself to gain valuable lessons and often through trial and error. Following high school, Warren moved to Montana, hunted with his grandfather, and lived in a tent. He also took the Spring and Summer semesters off from college.
"So I had about six months to guide and work and I really had no plan; I just packed up my truck and headed to Montana. I figured if I had no other choice but to figure it out, I'd figure it out," he said in an interview with the Journal of Mountain Hunting.
While hunting in Montana, he came across a guide who was operating in the region. The guide asked him if he would be interested in talking to the outfitter about working for them. He agreed to speak with the outfitter, and he was offered the job of a guide, which he eventually accepted.
Warren took up several jobs in the outdoor industry, including a hunting guide, photographer, outfitter, outdoor writer, filmmaker, and television personality.
After college, Warren planned to quit the guide job for another outfitter and wanted to start on his own. Fortunately, the man who bought the outfitting business from his grandfather in 1980 called him to ask if he wanted to acquire it. The man also offered to sell the business for the same price he had paid in 1980, and Warren bought it. He soon received the outfitter's license at 22 and started his own outfitting business, Montana OutWest Outfitters.
Located in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana, Warren runs it to date. The outfitter's firm initially started with specialization in deer and elk hunts on public land. Warren later expanded the operation by booking hunts across New Zealand and Africa. He manages and guides 30-50 clients per year and hunts 300 days per year.

The Afognak Bear Attack
In October 2017, the members of the MeatEater filming crew traveled to Afognak Island, Alaska, to capture an elk hunt. The crew included Warren, Steven Rinella, Janis Putelis, and many others. The Afognak Island is notable for its massive Roosevelt Elk and its massive brown bears. The hunt was a success despite facing challenging situations.
After a long journey, the team decided to have a meal break before filling their bags and carrying them back to camp. Each individual was armed with a bear deterrent or a bear spray, or a pistol. However, their deterrents were in their packs.
During the preparation of sandwiches and coffee, each person was seated near another man's pack, out of reach of their deterrent. Then, suddenly, an 11-foot brown bear charged out of the bushes surrounding them as they crowded around, enjoying their meal.
Every individual had a different reaction and experience about the situation. While Janis attacked the bear with a trekking pole, Warren did a "football juke move."
Luckily, no one was hurt badly, but its impact lasted for a long time. Warren shared the incident on his podcast show Cutting The Distance in episodes 86 and 87 and on Episode 1060 of The Joe Rogan Experience, which he attended as a guest.
