What to Eat While You’re Tree Stand Hunting

Have you ever wondered what kind of food to pack with you while you’re out in your tree stand?  I mean, let’s face it…you probably don’t want to bring a turkey dinner with you…or do you?

I recently stumbled across a website that gives tree stand hunters some fuel suggestions, keeping in mind the noise-factor of some foods, too, and here is what a post on foodforhunters.blogspot.com recommends:

  • First and foremost – WATER…lots and lots of water
  • Snickers bars (granola bars work, too)
  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • PB & J sandwich
  • Jerky

If you have any other suggestions for good tree stand hunting foods, tell us what they are!
