Ok, I'm going to lighten things up a bit.

A friend of mine told me that the two most important things with hunting are to 1. Look good doing it. (no argument there) and 2. Bring good snacks.

So here is the question. What are everyones favorite hunting snacks.? I am an old fashioned guy on this subject so I thought it would be interesting to see what everyone throws in the day pack for the hike out to the secret spot.

Me: PB&J with a bag full of trail mix mixed with beef jerky and dried fruit, and a bag of gummy bears I stole from my kids. I usually make it back from the hunt with a bag full of trail mix and a smashed PB&J.

I hope everyone is having a great hunt.

Travis

Snacks

-ultra spicy, self-prepared wild game jerky
-dried pineapple
-barnum bailey's animal crackers (must eat two on way to morning spot; incrediblly strange superstition)
-1 apple
- turkey sandwich or summer sausage

Normally I don't eat a large breakfast on the rifle hunt but this year I'm going to buy 6 breakfast burritos from Viva Burrito and eat them before the morning hunt. This should give me a little extra fuel while out there.

I like bagels for snacks. They don't smashed up like regular sandwiches, and you can still load em up with all sorts of junk. I like cream cheese on my bagels, but as a sandwhich they work just great with cheese and turkey or ham. Smoked salmon is a nice change of pace too, with or without cream cheese. You can't go wrong with jerky or pepperoni sticks either.

I'm with you Hawkeye... turned alot of my buck last season into homemade Tabasco Teriyaki Jerky.....good stuff. Could use more heat though.
I take Trail Mix, maybe a Breakfast bar and natural fruit, bananas,apples etc.
Anything that is easy to pack ,quiet to get out and easy to eat. That along with plenty of water.......
I also will take items out of normal packaging and put them into small zip locks bags.
