The use of the term "deer camp food" is a broad one. About to take some guests out to the ranch and looking for some ideas on what to cook while we are out there. Steaks are a standby of course, but also looking for ideas on lunch and breakfast. Eating well is always a highlight of a good trip in my opinion.

Fried catfish is a standby for us. Also, at least once or twice a season I bring a bunch of redfish filets for half-shell reds on the grill with either potato salad or baked macaroni with onions and jalapenos. Ain't noting wrong with meatballs and spaghetti.

One of my favorites is what I call "Camp Food". I use two pieces of heavy foil, crimp the edges and make a pan. I put a layer of cubed beef (stew meat), venison, or pork at the bottom. Then a layer of sliced smoked sausage. Then a layer of cubed golden potatoes, then a layer of chopped yellow onion and jalapenos (sometimes add colored bell peppers & serranos too - I go easy with peppers when feeding the kids), add your favorite seasoning, then pour a can of Bush's Baked Beans over the top of all that. Pull the sides up tight but leave a little room for the juices, crimp foil at top. Put on the pit or in oven after breakfast and cook 225-250, it'll be ready after the evening hunt. I was guiding some pig hunters from Arkansas years ago that made this, and got hooked on it. Then I got my kids hooked on it and have been making it ever since.

Always loved a big breakfast after the morning hunt. As long as it has eggs, meat and biscuits or tortillas then I am all over it up

If its just me I'm not too picky and will usually throw some hot links or what not on the grill. For larger groups, kids etc have gravitated toward something warm and brown in the dutch oven. Gumbo, fricasee's, creole's etc served with hot french bread are always a hit. Start them after lunch, leave on the edge of the campfire to simmer all day and you are good to go after an evening hunt.

Breakfast is pretty much always fried sausage, potatoes, and eggs with tortillas.

Depends on the size of the group and the cooking facilities available.

Breakfast casserole if you have an oven and a large group. Eggs, Sausage, Croutons, Cream of Mushroom soup, Seasonings, and lots of cheese in a disposable pan is always good. If campfire/grill we do breakfast tacos. Always nice sitting around the campfire eating tacos after the morning hunt.

Lunch for big groups we do lasangna in a disposable pan or a fish fry. The favorite in our group is sausage wraps – good sausage grilled, tortillas, cheese, chilli, mustard, dill relish, and sometime pico. These go great with a big bags of doritos and fritos because some people make frito pies also (adding sausage and pico into a frito pie is killer!!!). We just tried a new idea this year and it was a big hit – taco salad in a bag. Crushed up individual bags of doritos with taco fixings in them. Super easy because we brought all the fixins and only had to heat up meat, and everyone eats out of their doritos bag so the cleanup was very easy.

Like said above fried fish was always a big hit with us, love the smell when that fish hits the hot grease!

Was also pretty common to cut the loins out of whatever was hanging in the tree outside and chickenfry for dinner.

some of my favorite food memories from deer camp was chicken fried venison with fried potatoes and gravy for a large evening or mid day meal. grilled steaks or pork chops with fried potatoes was a close second. those never get old...

As for breakfast, I usually start a large cast iron skillet with a little oil or left over bacon grease, get it hot while chopping up potatoes, season, dump taters into grease and cover (steaming effect), once the potatoes brown on one side, stir/turn and dump in pan sausage and cover again. mix up some eggs, seasoning, a little milk and beat. stir potatoes/sausage and leave cover off, once sausage is browned, dump beaten eggs into the potato/sausage mix and stir until firm ... sprinkle with cheese and ready to eat ... either on a plate or on a tortilla ... toss in some chopped onions when you put the sausage in will also work.

I'm spoiled when it comes to eating at deer camp. My wife accompanies me all the time and cooks. I leave for the morning hunt and come back to biscuits, eggs, bacon and gravy. She'll hunt with me in the evening and if we're doing a long sit she packs us a sandwhich. When we get back she has a crockpot meal ready.

The only thing I have to cook are steaks. One of my favorites is when she cooks a roast in the crock pot with carrots, fingerling potatoes and onion. She also cooks a dish with link sausage, potatoes, cream of muchroom soup and Cajun seasoning.

As far as a wild game meal is concerned it's steaks and dove poppers over Mesquite wood with good baked beans, fresh corn, sliced onions, sliced tomatoes and fresh white bread. Top all that off with sweet tea.

Throw some biscuits out there with the chicken fried venison/steak and this is a winner.

I hunted with my older brother when I was a kid. His wife always got up early on opening morning and made buckwheat pancakes, fried eggs, and crispy bacon for us before we went out for the morning hunt. One of my fondest memories of hunting...

I always brought the ribeyes cooked over mesquite. Tracy my red headed little buddy made the potatoes onions Jalapenos and butter cooked on an open fire in a tin pan. We always tried to be the first to get the well done edges. Ped always brought the beans. Generally someone killed a spike opening morning for camp meat. We ate like kings. food
