If you’ve ever spent any time on the hunt, you know the importance of careful preparation. You can’t merely show up to a random stand of trees on the first day of the season, wearing a pair of blue jeans and carrying a borrowed rifle. To be successful year-after-year, hunters should refine and perfect everything from pre-season scouting to gear selection to trigger-pull technique. Dedicated hunters can even level up their field snacks. When you’re stalking a buck across endless acres of outdoor space, you need every ounce of available energy at your disposal. Beef jerky provides a healthy dose of lean protein with every bite. These nutrients offer lasting energy without the crash that comes with more sugary snacks. Plus, beef jerky comes in lightweight, resealable, and airtight packaging that makes it easy to include in your hunting pack. So as you’re preparing for #DeerWeek 2020, stop by my online mercantile or your local grocery, convenience, or outdoor store to stock up on my flavorful beef jerky. It could be your best friend this hunting season.
