So, what would be y'all's choice for a mid-day repast if you're staying out all day hunting. What's a grab-and-go food that will handle banging around and being smooshed in a backpack?

Making a sandwich is a pain in the pre-dawn hours and the night before is for a cigar and a wee dram.

All suggestions appreciated.

I always carry a small ice chest with me with (1) ham/cheese sandwich, (1) PBJ sandwich, (1) chocolate milk, (2) waters, and (1) energy drink. In my backpack I always have an assortment of dried fruits/nuts, powdered donuts, and jerky. I also carry out an empty milk jug smile

I have some tupperware type sandwich holds so the sandwich doesn't get flattened.. Usually a sandwich, snickers and some cheese and crackers.

Sandwich taste better when it's in smashed and you're in the woods.

I don't think I have ever taken a lunch here while deer hunting, but do in Colorado when chasing Elk, or MD. I usually use sliced turkey with real mayo on wheat bread, it can get a bit smashed sometimes, but pack it on top and usually is ok. I will also have some kind of cookie, usually nutter butters and chips ahoy and peanut butter, or cheese crackers and a apple and orange.

Takes me 5 minutes to make my lunch each evening, no biggy.

BTW, real mayo (don't know about the girly miricle whip stuff) Has lemon and vinager in it, enough acid to kill any bacteria that wants to grow on the turkey for that short period of time, plus it is usually cool enough out.

PB&J on thick rectangular "real" whole wheat bread (is denser and holds up better than white bread or the imitation wheat bread) trail mix, jerky, protein bar and water.

I just snack, in my pack I carry a dry spiced cereal mix of Cheerios, Wheat Chex, and Rice Chex with peanuts and cashews. No mess, easy to carry and no clean up. That and plenty of water and I am good to go until dinner time.

And here I was thinking hunting was about bringing food and not take food with us. Havn't been elk hunting but for deer usually after hunting fried liver, kidneys and ofcourse backstraps are first things.
