Well, I can't drag out a critter from more than 150 yds...BUT I can walk all day.

So I leave my SUV and hunt for an hour or so close to the vehicle; then go deeper into my favorite spots, sometimes a mile or two.

I raise the bolt handle so I don't have to worry that my brain doing something my legs/back can't finish.  

So I've been making my truncated hunts more fun by eating a decent lunch on a log in my beautiful forests.  

In a prior post you guys helped me pick a backpacking stove.  

Now I need some thoughts on light weight HOT meal I could cook deep in the woods.  Wanted to avoid store bought freeze dry/dehydrated things.

You need to eat one of your tree rats when your out.
 A small fire , a stick, some salt and pepper.
Hunger will make you a better hunter too, ( if need be).Big smile

Take a diced baked potato, couple pats butter, diced ham, and couple eggs or egg substitute in small plastic container. Fry the diced cooked potatoes and ham in butter, until browned, pour your eggs over top, a little cheese to top it you want. Either eat it outta pan or roll it in tortilla. A lite 4-6" nonstick skillet or pot, for tea, coffee, or soup, is all you need, to open up a bunch of choices.

Par-cooked bacon, ham, potatoes, added to packaged soup, makes a quick lunch.

This looks pretty darned good to me - I'll probably give this a go when we get weather that is a little better. Star
 
My youngest son and I like to cook breakfast by the lake often, but most of the time it is in a cast iron pan or Dutch oven over a fire, which would be too big for  backpacking stove.
 
A lot of time we take standard mess kits (similar to Boy Scout mess kits) with us, and over a small fire we fry some bacon or sausage, then scramble some eggs in there, then pour pancake mix over the top, then cover with the "bowl" part of the mess kit and let it bake for a while, until the pancake batter puffs up and is finished. This is actually really good.

Try this.....
diced raw potato (much as you can eat)
diced onions to taste /tater
season w/salt-pepper or ??? to your taste
hamburger patty (your size) mixed with onions & seasoning of yer choice
put all in tinfoil wrap (couple thicknesses)
cook over small campfire or stove burner until done.

Unwrap and eat! Thumbs Up

add condiments if so desired 
(fill up on those ketchup & mustard foil packs at McDonalds)

IBD, I think that is called aa HOBO dinner. very good.  BUT heavy and long cook time (Make fire, cook, eat+3 hrs  includes washdown with a beer).

I'm use to taking backpack meals with things like:

tea bag coffee, Maxwelhouse, also Earl Grey tea.
Minute rice (little cook time/very light weight).


I like 1-2 minute cook times to save stove fuel.


Found Star Kis tuna in a foil bag (nocan, no refrig)-  good source of protein, but zero flavor.
Span is OK, heavy, but also has no flavor nor texture.

Some of Wingmaster's smoked ribs, de-boned packed in aluminum foil with a side of Wee Willy's BBQ sauce. Or a big slice of frozen lasagna utilizing RobertMT's mother's recipie also wrapped in aluminum foil. Reheated on a small camp stove along with a slice of garlic French bread.

I've found with foil packed fish, "kids" creations bacon ranch, sweet & spicy, and tuna salad, have more flavor. They aren't bad on crackers, easier than sardines and like you said no can. They also make things like stews, in the same foil packs, look by the chili or soup section.

Take your cooked rice (either minute or precooked) and add Asian spiced tuna or salmon pack, for flavor.

Here's another idea, from Sweden:
Quote Kolbulle (charcoal buns) are a classic dish prepared by forest workers, wood cutters, hunters, and especially charcoal makers. These hearty folks were far from hearth and home, and couldn't carry a lot of provisions. So they made these pancakes with salt pork, flour, salt, and water, items that were easily carried and required no refrigeration.
 
Kolbulle
(Charcoal Buns)
 
Milk
Flour
Eggs (one per person)
Salt pork (or substitute fresh pork heavily seasoned with salt & pepper)
 
 
Cube & fry the pork.
 
Combine milk, flour, salt, and eggs to create a thin pancake batter.
 
Return some of the pork to the pan, adding more butter or lard if needed. Pour batter around the pork. Cook until browned on one side. Flip the pancake and cook the other side until browned.
 
I've tried this with bacon in place of the salt pork and it was great ~ Tongue

minute rice and Tuna Asian spiced tuna...been doing that.  No flavor,,stopped in Wall Drug and bought a bottle of Olde Bay..that made it palatiable.   that tuna really has little flavor when heated.


Ron,  when I worked in the mines on the upper peninsulula  of Michigan, the scandavian  miners called them "pasty"  meat, good stuff when eaten underground with a miners light.

The following info makes for a great field lunch....ok cold but better HOT.
The Welsh, Cornish or English pasty (pronounced pass-tee) and is cubed spuds with cubed beef, onions, cubed rutabaga (option) (whole thing seasoned to taste) wrapped in a pie crust dough shaped like letter "D"....baked at 450* for 30 min, then finished at 350* for 30 min.

Makes a VERY TASTEE PASTY! 

LINK to pasty history...with pictures of them...worth the read

I know you said the freeze dried packets weren't an option, but the Mountain home breakfast skilet is pretty darned good. They are light weight and cook fast. I would bring along some tortillas and make breakfast burritos out of it. A little tupperware type cup of salsa would go good with it too. 

If that doesn't work for you, you could always scramble a few eggs and put a packet of tuna in the eggs. Wink

I like ribs that are cooked Jo-Bawb's style!

In DC now, but there is a Cabela's out around Bull Run; they might have Mountain home breakfast skilet.  will give them a try.  I'll only be back at home one day before packing up for 3 day hunt.

If the pasty is an option, don't forget the Butte Pasty! Tongue
