Jani's Gear Shed: Backcountry Meals

Packing food for a long backcountry hunt means considering weight, nutrients, and palatability. I pack simple breakfast options, a lot of snacks to get me through the day, and Peak Refuel provides me with a protein-packed meal to satisfy my hunger at night and gives me the energy to hunt hard and early the next morning.
