I am trying to clean eighty-plus emails from my inbox, plant some flowers for spring, and gather my gear for the afore-mentioned elk hunt.
If I get an elk (far from guaranteed), I can brag on its being "natural meat."
The funny thing is, when I hunt alone and no one else is cooking, I tend to run on processed foods, the kind that are bad for you long-term.
There will be an MRE in my day pack. Like what's in those? And supermarket burritos for fast breakfast while I am trying to get the dogs organized so that I can leave.
I suppose a hunk of bread and some cured sausage would be more authentic. Maybe next year.
