    I forgot to add obviously my bow(in hand) and packweight. Right now my pack is weighing roughly 42 lbs without water.

    I would add some fiber pills for helping with the mountain house digestion, also check out the Aquamira water treatment drops. They work fast and don't give you the iodine taste in your water, and I think it helps with the taste. Add a camera, some paracord and a back up release and you should be darn near good to go.

    I think you will starve if you dont do some fishing! HAHA. I would have 2 energy bars for each day plus a couple extra incase you have to stay an extra night for some reason. I like the foil packed tuna for lunch but am curious why you dont have 1 for each day? Same with mountain house meals. For breakfast I like poptarts or sometihng like that you dont have to cook since I am always out glassing before I have breakfast. I also like to take some packs of peanut butter crackers. I would also highly recommend a water filter and rain gear.

I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    Forgot to mention the GoPro camera and the 50' of paracord. Not sure I need fiber. I ate the chili Mac MH meal the other day and it had no problem duplicating itself out the other end. Lol. As for the iodine I also have the other bottle that removes the iodine taste. Thanks for recommendations.

    MM I kind of agree. I'm afraid I may not have enough food. One year I carried too much and I don't want to do that. I'm generally not a big breakfast eater so that's the reason for just a few. Also I can use as backup meals if hungry. I love the foil packs of flavored tuna. I add mayonnaise, crackers, and even hot sauce I may add a couple more because they are not a lot of food nor do they take up much room. May throw more protein bars in as well. Rain gear is on the list. Gonna pick some up in St.Louis or Denver on the way out. Haven't found exactly what I'm looking for just yet. Thanks for the input.

    My food list each day is something like this. 2 pop tarts, 2 cliff bars, 1 foil pack tuna, 1 pack crackers, 1 mountain house dinner. Sometimes I mix single serve instant mashed potatoes in the mountain house and I have also cut mountain house in 1/2 and added potatoes to spread them out if I stay longer then I planned. I always like to have enough so I can stay 1 extra day comfortably if I need to. Ypu never know what could happen. You will burn alot more energy on a backpack hunt then you think you will and your body needs fuel to keep going.
