All a guy needs is a few loads of bread and a jar of peanut butter. Muzzleloader season is too short to cook

Ha haaa I know a guy like this. Block of cheese, bunch of trail mix and he's good to go.

Great ideas on here. I typically don't get the opportunity to hunt out of a camp but something I really like in the camping situation is a thicker home-made chicken noodle soup with lots of chicken. Bring a loaf or two of some good baked bread to heat up makes a for a great pair.

Lots of eggs and cheese and bone marrow. Great energy that lasts.

You have a recipe for that one? That looks and sounds quite intriguing.

I freeze a weeks worth of dinners usually. Beef stew, spaghetti sauce with sausage etc. I also pre-cook chicken biring cream of mushroom soup and biscuits and make a chicken and biscuit thing in the dutch oven on the stove.

Breakfast is mostly normal eggs and sausage stuff. I do like to par boil potatoes and throw them in a zippy. Easy home fries or mashed potatoes.

Pack sandwiches and lot's of nuts for lunch.

I don't eat as much as I used to. I end up bringing food home.

The most important thing is to bring fruits for lunch and salad stuff and veggies for dinner. Those vitamins come in handy when you have been sweating all day. Salt/ salty foods are also helpful as I am a big sweater and I tend to cramp. My first year hunting elk in the Olympics my hamstring actually went into a spasm. We were 6 miles behind a locked gate. It was not a great feeling. I rallied and made it back fine but I'd rather not do that again.

You cook bone marrow ahead of time. You can buy marrow bones from a butcher or at Winco by the frozen liver and ducks. Once it's thawed, soak it overnight in salt water to remove the blood. Roast it at 450F for 15 minutes. Then use a kitchen knife to remove from the bones. It's almost all fat, so you can keep it refrigerated for a couple of weeks and use as needed on eggs, toast. Great on toast instead of butter.

Excellent. I buy beef locally by the 1/3 or 1/2. It comes with soup bones. It's not certified organic but it's pretty much grass fed organic without the certification. I get bones there. I will have to look into what bones to use. I am assuming beef bones. Thanks for the new culinary idea. You have given me some research to do.

Elk and bison marrow is good. I know some people use pork marrow but I've never tried it. It's supposed to be pretty good - I would think that marrow is marrow; all fat. I think lamb bones are too small.

Putting marrow on a steak kicks butt.

We presently make soup or broth out of nearly all of our bones. It has gone to a good friend in the form of broth that we deliver. She has stage 4 cancer. I have hoped that we were helping in some way. Reading up on marrow, it seems we may have been. I have been eating marrow for a while but only through soup. I will certainly try to eat it this way now.
You made me do some research. It appears as though the risks or benefits of marrow have not been studied all that much. What little can be gleaned seems to be quite positive. I am excited to try to cook some up. I should have plenty of bones in the freezer.
Thanks for the idea.

 :tup: The only negatives you'll hear are from the people who don't understand that the food pyramid was designed to help certain food producers and hasn't a lot to do with real nutrition and health.

When you use those bones, cut them in lengths about 3-4" to make it easier to get the marrow out. Don't forget to soak them in salt water for at least 12 hours in the fridge.

Most of our meals now are frozen in vac packed bags and then boiled to heat.

It really allows for a lot of pretty gourmet and delicious options. And you can prep them all ahead of time so that it doesn’t take a lot of energy when you get back to camp!

We can fit over a weeks worth of meals in a yeti style cooler no problem. They just keep themselves frozen in there.

We usually have tacos at least one night in camp. Cook the meat ahead of time and they are easy to make and everyone seems to like them.
