    Interesting choices.

    In the AM before setting out I may or may not eat. If I do eat it is either a bowl of oatmeal or some scrambled eggs.

    When I am in the field I take several small containers filled with trail mix of different types that I purchase @ wallyworld, and one or two apples and that is it. I keep them in my backpack and snack on them when hungry. Sometimes I don’t eat at all while hunting. I always have about a gallon of water on me as well. 1 two quart container, and two 1 quart containers.

    Sometimes I make pepperoni rolls to take along, but the above is standard and always with me. But then again if I take pepperoni rolls then I need to have some TUMS with me.

    I leave the house empty, when you are a little bit hungry, you hunt better.

    IMO and we all have one, getting out to hunt is great either alone or with the friends your trust. Bagging what you are hunting for makes it even better. But just being out in the country with your thoughts doing what you love to do is the best no matter how good the hunt is.

    Jerky, trail mix and some dried fruit. Dried fruit is one of my must haves no matter what I'm doing. Apricots and pineapple are my favorites.

    hey i just picked a couple monstereo delicio (sp?) just ate one whilst doing the fence line , 2 bunnies only , but i'll duck out in a hour again , will take the other home to put with ice cream ( it hit 98 here today , everythings good eh )

    they are growing wild along the north facing area's i may make up a batch of proper home made ice cream from them

    they are cool and juicy to eat while walking but you have a hell of a time with the seeds and these folks you dont want to eat

    they cut into everything

    pity i cant send fruits i'd send ya some crystalised pineapple

    the motel i was stayed while away is owned by the folks who also own the buderim motel , i stay at when that way , its a short walk from buderim ginger factory

    we order a tray ( about 14 lb ) its just dried at a temp where the sugars come to the surface and crystalise as the water evaporates...

    not a thing added

    the secret is getting the pine from the field and cut and on the try within 20 mins

    so they converyor line it when they pick and they are in the dryer for 2 days still dripping and the stack is rotated so the top ones end up on the bottom and move up one slot every hour the first day every 2 the next for the first half day , then they dont drip no more

    been thinking of doping it here in a much smaller way like a oven load every couple days for a week or so , but aint even planted the right type yet , i've planted the minitures ( actually they are the "heirloom" variety about 1/3 of the big ones in storews or half the next size depending on the breed) that will feed me and not be wasted

    Trail mix is great, I love it, especially the dried fruits. But for us that are diabetic, the dried fruits can get us in trouble real quick! Then there's the nuts. Again, those of us that are diabetic have to be careful not to eat too many of them. About 1oz. is a serving for us. If I chose to go with a home made trail mix, it would be 1oz mixed nuts, and two, or three pieces of dried fruit! Not much there! Meats, and eggs, won't spike our blood sugars, but we still have to watch how much we eat. If I take an apple with me, I can only eat half of it at a meal!

    I usually take a coffee and bagel in the morning to get me started and woken up. Trail mix is a great thing to have when youre sitting out there and not seeing anything move. Usually whatever I eat is gone within the first couple of hours because I get bored of not seeing anything. Haha.
