    Good beef jerky as well as trail mix or granola...When your hunting in cold weather your body will need to carbs and extra calories...

    This is my trail mix and it works to keep me going out duck hunting.
    Almonds,Crasins,Chocolate covered pamagranite fruit, and anything else in dried fruit you like. I also take some cheese for the fat and protin. Eat a good breakfast high in carbs and fat before you leave for the stand.

    What "Luckyman" said with the addition of a Snickers or two. Its my weakness. Gotta have my junk food energy boost. I take the Caprisun's to drink.

    Turkey jerky is great too. Nuts. Power bars.

    Do not forget water to keep hydrated.

    I'd recommend a thick slice of tofu on a crisp rice cake, some chopped-up okra and a few sprigs of parsley.

    It tastes like hell but the deer assume you're too gay to be a hunter and they walk right up to you.

    Peanut butter and cracker sandwiches. There is none better to snack on for energy and satiation.

    Clif bars for energy and nutrition. Gatorade or water for drinks. I also eat a lot of small boxes of raisins.

    Gary, You owe me a new keyboard. LOL However I've been hunting at least six time since gun season opened and haven't seen a thing so I have my wife in the kitchen looking for the items you recommended. I'm ready to try almost anything. Jackie B.

    You might also consider putting the food in a zip lock baggie, because some wrappers are quite noisy. Especially the new biodegradable type.

    As for food, don't forget apples, grapes, and dried fruit. (Prunes not recommended.)

    All of the above are good, I like to take a couple hard boiled eggs for a mid morning snack and a can of smoked oysters with some cheese and crackers for the afternoon. Staying well hydrated will keep you going longer than eating a bunch of 'power food.

    A couple years ago I lost one of my best friends. He fell out of his tree stand while deer hunting. They found an empty snack bag in his blind. He appeared to have gotten hungry, ate, then fell asleep, fell out and broke his neck.
