THE HUNTERS GEAR LIST
Food lists can be both fun and challenging to create and much depends on the length and location of your hunting adventure. We all have different food preferences regarding taste, texture and type but your ability to eat whatever you want, whenever you want becomes challenging when you consider backcountry weight limitations, food allergies, pallet fatigue, and convenience.
When it comes to packing food into the backcountry or remote bush of Alaska, it’s all about getting the biggest bang for your buck. You simply may not be able to carry as much food as you are accustomed to eating at home due to weight and space restrictions so considering foods that are lightweight, protein rich and calorie dense will maximize the value of the food that you pack in.
Food brought into the backcountry should not require refrigeration, be easy to cook, easy to eat, convenient and nutritious. Keep in mind that when you are hunting in a group, you may not be able to eat whenever you’d like so calorie dense snacks may come in handy during a long hunt.
Food For Thought
On extended hunts such as the remote bush of Alaska, being denied your typical eating schedule, food types or the usual calorie intake you're a costumed to, can produce discomfort and mood swings. You should beware of this as it can put undue pressure on you, your hunting partner or group. Months before you leave home and your physically preparing for your hunt, you should also mentally prepare yourself for this temporary faze as you and your body adjusts to your new diet and calorie intake. A person will likely experience this mental and physical change during the first few days of the hunt, after which you'll find yourself starting to adjust to your new diet. In fact you may find that your starting to skip meals, and in need of reminding yourself to eat.
