Whether you are packing for an extended backcountry hunt or an afternoon looking for mushrooms or antler sheds, you should carry nutritious snacks for energy to fuel your body for the hike. Here are a few that we like to carry in our pack.
Many hunters make their own jerky from venison they have killed and processed. If you are so lucky, that is one of the best snacks to carry. It’s lightweight and loaded with protein, but sometimes also heavy on the salt, so be sure to carry lots of water.
If you aren’t lucky enough to make your own jerky, our favorite packaged jerky is Tillamook Jerky Sticks. They are easy to pack and delicious!
