Eduardo Garcia


Eduardo Garcia was raised in Emigrant, Montana. After graduating from high school, he attended culinary college in Seattle, Washington before becoming a world-travelling, professional chef on luxury yachts. Upon returning to Montana, he co-founded the food brand, Montana Mex. Shortly afterwards, Garcia was shocked with 2400 volts when he inadvertently touched a hidden power line on an elk hunt. His miraculous recovery formed the basis for the documentary film, Charged.

Today, Garcia tours the country as an athlete, chef and motivational speaker. Though he lost his left arm to his accident, he continues to shoot his bow and has found a new role as an advocate for the Challenged Athletes Foundation. He continues to run Montana Mex and enjoys hunting, foraging and gardening at his home outside Bozeman.

Favorite Hunt

Elk in southwest Montana during Novembers rifle season. Don’t get me wrong who doesn’t love the rut in the fall? Of course that is epic and no doubt that’s where I will be as often as possible. However to respect the question is to answer honestly. It’s usually on those biting negative -14F hunts, you know that hunt when you have to heat up your Havalon in order to thaw the blood frozen solid on that dulled blade in order to swap it out that I chuckle to myself. And in that maniacal chuckle and ensuing grin I find stoke and insane gratification.
