    I like tuna too but it smells way too much and you still have the smelly pack if you don't wash it out. I guess it all depends where you are at but I did once. Not again.

    I think it is a way to get additional calories in. Not for sure. But I know that I am not up for drinking olive oil just because.

    I like the tuna, I take Korean instant ramien (spicy kind), make that up, eat the noodles first and then eat the tuna with the broth. I take along ziplock bags for trash anyways, so I'm not worried about the smell.

    About the olive oil, it's also good for heartburn, take a tablespoon or so.

    I've never seen or heard of those Honey Stingers before, I'll have to check them out. I like the Cliff Mojo bars and their Builder bars, but the honey ones sound good.
    Ah, the nostalgic aroma of a yak dung stove brewing up some tea full of herbs best left untranslated.

    I am not a nutritionist nor a doctor, however, I consume 2000-2200 calories a DAY with little excersize to maintain my weight. If you only ate 1500 calories a day while hiking/hunting you would be about 2-4k short a day depending on how much you work.

    if you are considering this, i would HIGHLY recommend trying it out first before just diving in while out hunting, you may not like the results you see.

    I tend to over do it on everything. I pack cliff bars as my daily snack alongs. I take trail mix, but I will definitely mix in some of the higher calorie nuts.

    now for my weird idea. chime in if I am crazy. I mixed honey and peanut together until it was a very "honey" rich tasting mix. I make simple sandwiches with this. I smash sandwiches down until they are like a solid wafer and 4 of these fit in a ziplock sandwich bag. The idea for me is 2 sandwiches per day, 2 cliff bars per day, and a little snacking on trailmix to take the edge off.

    I pack the mountainhouse, but I discovered maybe the same as Arrowslinger that I skip the mountainhouse sometimes because I am really not hungry enough to put out the effort.

    I come from a long line of clutzy people. I carry a compact watertight first aid pack and jam a few extras in also. I take pain relievers, muscle relaxers to sleep, and ritalin to keep awake during the day(a mild case of narcolepsy makes for a difficult hunt sometimes when there is not alot of action).

    Lightening my load is definitely where I need help. thanks everybody for sharing.
