Going on a Backcountry Hunt? You Need These Tips for Food Packing

Get the skinny on food packing for that backcountry hunt with these simple tips to lighten your backpack load.

When you head into the wilderness and mountains for that hunt of a lifetime you want to keep your load as light as possible to keep at peak performance. Check out these tips from Kuiu Ultralight Hunting to be at the top of your game.

With today’s dehydrated meals, we get an upper hand in keeping the weight down for our outdoor adventures and with carful planning you can get enough daily calories so your hunt doesn’t become some sort of physical trial.

I also like the tip here for taking along some fresh food such as nuts and bagels in Ziploc bags for each day. With under a pound-and-a-half for each day, you can do an extended backcountry hunt without breaking your back and keeping the overall experience about the hunting.

Get out in the backcountry this hunting season but carefully plan out your food load to save weight and keep space for other essential gear.
