Whether it is a overnight excursion from base camp to a 2 week bomb in bivy hunt, how do you guys fuel up for the grind? I typically head into an area planning on anywhere from a 4-14 day excursion. I generally plan for around 2200-2500 calories a day on the hard working elk hunts. Maybe less if I am doing more glassing. I like a cold breakfast that I can eat on the go. Something like bars, cereal, powdered milk/protein mix/water, etc. For snacks I have granola bars, WA bars, trail mix, jerky, and the like. I will usually have a Mountain House for supper and maybe some Idahoan instant potatoes. I usually have a couple mini candy bars and hard candies packed away in each days food also. I probably pack more food than the average hunter, but I know I wouldn't be able to sustain daylight to dark hunts day after day with out the proper fuel. How do you all do it?
