Fall is for Hunting!

Well, the leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and there has even been a few early mornings that I’ve woken up to a little frost on the car. What do all of these changes mean? You guessed it, it is Hunting season yet again!
 
Ok, so that may not have been the first thing you thought of when those leaves started to fall and the pumpkins started to show up at the local grocery store. But for most guys, fall is the time we look forward to more than any other time in the year! (Is it any wonder that College and Professional Football, Hunting, and Fishing all occur at the time when yard work mysteriously disappears?)

It is this state of mind (and pure excitement over hunting season) that has inspired today’s blog entry. We’ll discuss a few items from Honeyville that all of us should pick up before we make our way up to the mountains. Believe me these will make your days in the great outdoors even better!

Honeyville Blueberry Pancake and Waffle Mix


Ok, I know this sounds like a flashback to our camping post we made back in August, but that’s because Honeyville’s pancake mixes are just so delicious and so easy to make! All you need is Honeyville’s Blueberry Pancake Mix and water and within minutes you have delicious, warm pancakes ready to eat. You know hunting isn’t hunting unless you start the day out with a warm breakfast. Call them pancakes, flapjacks, hotcakes, or any other name you have for them, but I promise you, you will not be disappointed with this addition to your hunting pack.

Honeyville Freeze Dried Strawberry Yogurt Bites


Hunting, for most of us, means lots of walking and hiking. Because of this, your body is burning far more calories that it usually would. You need energy and that energy comes from snacks. That’s where Honeyville’s Freeze Dried Strawberry Yogurt Bites comes in. These sweet flavored yogurt bites are not only super delicious, but packaged in a small can, which is the perfect size for your hunting pack. Looking for a bit of variety with them? Check out this amazing Trail Mix recipe from Tennille! Mix it up and put it in a sandwich bag and you’ve got the perfect hunting snack!

Honeyville Mexican Style Cocoa


Alright, I’m just going to say it. Real men drink Cocoa! And why not? It’s warm. It’s sweet. It’s delicious. Whether your heading out long before the sun comes up each day, or sitting around the campfire after a long day of tracking, this is the perfect drink to either wake you up or wind you down. For many of us, hunting season will bring our first sight of snow for the year, so having this warm drink stored in a thermos in our pick-up or hunting pack is the perfect way to battle the cold. And with that subtle hint of cinnamon found in Honeyville’s Mexican Style Cocoa, you may just want to take a few more sips.
These are just a few items that you can include in your supplies to make your hunting trip just a little more comfortable this year. Though we didn’t focus on actual meals, we have a great post on the Honeyville Ranchers Cut Freeze Dried Meals which would be the perfect addition to any hunting camp menu! So as you head out this season, stay safe, shoot straight, and enjoy the great outdoors with Honeyville!
