the things i really like to eat when hunting, this is what i put in the pack:

-salami and yellow cheese slices
-peanut butter crackers
-trail mix that i make out of: almonds, cashews, hazel nuts, mms, salted raisins, diced dried apricot, and date pieces
-oatmeal raisin cookies
-diet raspberry tea

this gets me through the day, and i really enjoy sitting down to eat some lunch (salami and cheese) and drink the tea

what food/snacks do you like to put in your pack?

Meat is the word of the day in our deer camps, every kind you can imagine, from chicken to kudu.

daytime: breakfast is usually cold oatmeal in milk (soaked overnight) with dried fruit and nuts (I know, you are what you eat, right?) and a bit of Karo syrup.

throughout the day: beef jerky, tuna (also serves as bait), trail mix bars of some sort, crackers, cheese in the hunting pack. If I make it back to camp or my truck it's ramen noodles for lunch usually. Also almonds, dried fruit, fresh apples and we have these things from the local butcher shop called 'beer snacks' , basically they're jerky sausage concoction that is freakin' delicious.

dinner is the main meal of course, usually my dried veggies soaked back to life during the day, add a bunch of water, a meat (spam, ground venison, beef, whatever) and grains of choice. rice, pasta, lentils, canned beans, etc... and tons of spices and broth packets. Use the fire unless I'm lazy or in a hurry, then will put the dutch oven on the coleman stove.

Moose stew & always left over fry bread. The Indians usually just shoot a bunch of grouse, shoot a beaver, shoot some ducks; pretty much eat what they find near camp; usually an island downriver from our community. Even better is fresh meat, usually moose. Breakfasts are late and enjoyable, more like lunch.

For my back-pack I always have some type of jerky, a can or two of vienna sausages, a mountain dew and cheese crackers. The box on the 4 wheeler always has at least 2 MRE's, a water bottle, some type of canned heat and eat pastas and stew, my hiking stove w/fuel, mountain dew and more crackers.

Crackers, and cheese are probably the first thing I think of. Some vienna sausages, hard boiled eggs, spam, smoked oysters, sardines, and some kind of fruit. Water is the only thing I take to drink, except for coffee in the mornings. Lots of memories of sitting along a road side, or at the deer camp, eating lunch with hunting buddies! I'm also always on the look out for wild edibles, such as persimmons, and paw-paw's, and french mulberries.

Yeah, they say that about us smokers too but every hog and deer I've shot I had a cigarette hanging out the corner of my mouth when I touched that trigger. :dontknow:

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.
