    Can of pork & beans, eaten cold.

    I used to do that, hiking, fishing, hunting. Can't do it anymore though - and it'll ruin you for canned pork & beans (hot or cold). Kind of like that college tequila night.

    Some type of cured meat, cheese and an apple is my standby when day hunting away from the rig.

    Peanut butter and tortillas.

    I also find that a cliff bar, and a handful of roasted almonds will keep me going for quite a while.

    We've been doing the vacuum packed, then frozen bagel/bacon/cheese/pb and sometimes honey for a few years. My wife calles them butthole sandwiches because that's what they look like. Two per day, and something dehydrated for dinner. Top Ramen works too, especially when one is on a budget.

    I went on Hunt Harvest Health Website and got the recipe for the the protein bars they have. Taste great and full of nutrition. I also take the single serve tuna packets and small tortillas. I dehydrate my own fruits and buy nuts and M&Ms mix together in a large bag and fill small bags for the day. All light weight and donít take up much room and in the pack. Hope this helps. Good luck.

    Aside from the cliff bar/jerky/nuts for snacks, I carry tuna pouches, salami, cheese, and an apple or orange for lunch. I think having fresh fruit and cheese is a treat on a hunt longer than a few days.

    Brady Miller has a great article on his stove less backpacking food method. He details it in an article on GoHunt. He was out 7-10 days with no stove. That reduces your H20 requirement as well. Haven't tried the method myself.

    Bagels, PB, honey, bacon? Don't threaten me with a good time............

    Cliff bars and jerky. I love spam singles, best snack at home. Little mustard and 2 slices of bread and you are done.

    Yeah, I read that too, but can you imagine being on a cold hunt, and only having cold protein shakes for caloric intake? I don't think I'd want to do it. There's something about a warm cup of coffee in the morning and a warm Mountain House at night that makes me more comfortable when I'm living out in the elements.

    I'm on your side LuketheDog, I take 3-4 of those instant Starbucks (insert yuppee comment here) coffees and a mountain house at night. Hot food and a warm cup of coffee can change your outlook on the day pretty fast. I can't live without them. Guys like Brady are tougher than me

    i use pbj and tuna in foil packs on sandwich thins. I also make the noodle packets that just add water and take 7 min to make and throw packet of chicken in foil in. Cheaper than a mountain house which i also use. For the first few nights i eat frozen steaks wrapped in newspaper. Went 2 days in 70 deg and my steak was still to frozen to cook right, and i can handle pink. I bring the pre cooked bacon also. Dont calculate the per lb cost, also don't let you signifigant other calculate the per lb cost of your non resident hunts. I have had a few pieces of tenderloin from 4 elk hunts. So like $1800 per bite but oh the memories 375 class at 100 yards worth it.

    I concur! stove, warm meals, and hot coffee or hot chocolate is worth it if weather is going to be cold!

    Do you tuck your manbun under your hat when you hunt?

    I like to think all the money is in that first steak. The rest are FREE!

    Agreed. I'll definitely be using his suggestions for my food list next year, but can't get behind stove-less (and not even having a receptacle to boil water in an emergency) backcountry living. I use a beer can alcohol stove for boiling water once per day. That's a minor weight penalty and has worked for me up to 12,000 ft. I've not tried it higher than that, but hear that eventually they don't work so well. His argument against stoves because of loss of water due to evaporation seems spurious unless you forget and boil your water for a long time. I don't think that you're saving any water by not rehydrating a hot meal with it. He's rehydrating a cold protein powder meal with it instead. I think that's a net gain of zero.
