The days are starting to get shorter and the nights are getting cooler, which means one thing; Fall and Hunting season are just around the corner! Whether you’ll be venturing in to the back country, or walking across a farm, it’s a good idea to bring some provisions. Sweetwood Smokehouse all-natural meat snacks are great options for your pack due to the weight-to-protein ratio. One bag of 1.75oz Beef Jerky provides 19g of protein, which will keep you fueled and alert on the hunt.
Carrying a heavy pack with water, calls, a gun or bow, food, and extra layers will cause you to exert more energy and burn extra calories, especially if you’re stalking game at elevation. “Unlike carbohydrates and fats, your body does not store protein, so it has no reservoir to draw from when you’re running low” 1. This is where Sweetwood’s meat snacks come in! Take a break and enjoy a bag of jerky, or rip open a FATTY smoked meat stick while you’re on the move. This extra protein will keep you sustained and strong, so you’re prepared for that trophy elk or deer to walk out in front of you! It’s also a good idea to keep your snacks at the top of your packed bag. This way, you’re not rummaging through your pack and making a ton of noise in an effort to find your snacks.
