    Your best hunting snacks!

    Wanting to try something different than snickers, homemade cookies and Swiss cake rolls this year. I want to know what you bring in th field other than power/clif/granola bars. Whether its healthy or not, unique or general!

    I prefer to eat natural and healthy but in the field it's usually whatever...

    candy bars of all sorts... granola bars...

    I think I tried "oh yeah" bars, high in protein, high in calories, like over 300cal/bar, but taste good unlike most protein bars...

    apples, bananas...

    oat meal, hot dogs in camp...

    I make a pretty mean mix of raw almonds, Craisins, raisins, and chocolate chips that I like to take. Or a lot of times an apple. But one of my favorite things to take along is the Fruit & Nut chocolate bar by Cadbury (like the eggs). They taste great, but mostly because they always remind me of elk hunting with my old man, since he and I would always split one at about ten in morning every time we went out.

    Dam that sounds good ! I bought two different energy bars before my antelope hunt. Never used them before. Not a good idea when it's 97 degrees unless you like gooey melted chocolate. One was Carb Concious/ carmel nut chocolate. Tasted great but melted bad. Maybe good for Fall/Winter time. The othe was Met-RX. They hardly melted at all. Chocolate roasted almond. Yum. They definitley filled me up for what they were. I'm a big appitite guy. They have both at Waly Mart.

    I know you don't want to hear it, but protein bars and trail mix. I make sure the protein bars have no sugar.

    Sugar puts me to sleep. It's the last thing i'd eat hunting.

    The BEST jerky in Ca. . Smokehouse Meats in Bishop Ca. All Mohogany smoked. My fave, sweet and spicey turkey jerky. Like dam candy. I gave that rancher about 1/2 pd. of it. He was in heaven. Expensive though. Habenero Turkey is good too, for a couple min.
    I bought a new beef one , can't remember the name at the moment (Jack) but it was good and wished I'd bought more. Came back the 5 fwy and not 395 so couldn't grab anymore If you pack jerkey while you hunt, I pack extra liquids. Makes me thirsty.

    Jerky will definitely keep you hydrated, I like the energy from the protein. I always stop at the beef jerky shops, they always have the best.
