Nutrition in the Field: A Hunter’s Guide to Staying Fueled

When it comes to hunting, staying properly energized and hydrated are key. After all, most hunts are physically demanding.

That misalignment could mean the difference between a successful hunt and a disappointing experience. Rifles should be topped with quality scopes at a minimum of 3×9 power with a 40mm objective or larger. Remember, we take longer shots out[...]

This is a question I get asked quite often this time of year and the answer is simple, yet complex.
