I have hunted my whole life in the south, therefore I'm a Western rookie Brick Wall,) . What food goods work well on wilderness drop camp hunt? We plan on hunting for 10 days in the Selway Bitterroot area of Idaho.

Any advice would help.

Thats awfullly ambitious for a western rookie. You better think a lot about your safety and navigation (I hope you have a GPS and 20 batteries if you are out for 10 days). By drop camp, I assume you mean an outfitter is dropping you off by horse back with all the supplies. If thats the case, use heavier canned items with lots of carbohydrates. Mountain House is great for backpack hunts, but if you have the luxury of additional weight go with foods you actually want to eat (not that Mountain House is bad).
