    I've gotten on a lease this year & have about 150-200 acres to hunt. The camp is a pretty good haul probably about 30min from where my portion is.
    So as for food & snacks. What's in y'all pack packs for these all day sits?

    For me it depends on if it is cold or warm. If it is cold I need a lot more food. 1-2 sandwiches and 1-2 clif bars in the warm season and 3-4 sandwhiches and 3-4 clif bars/candy bars in the cold.

    Water and pre-opened snack sized candy bars. Try not to eat much so I don't need to pinch a loaf.

    I eat apples mostly but I'll occasionally bring cliff bars and/or trail mix. Stuff that is easy to eat is best. Sandwiches always seem to wind up getting crushed in my pack and then make a mess. Cheese sticks are good too. I avoid coffee for body function reasons but I usually crave it all day.

    Usually fruit. Apples or bananas. Depends how cold it is. Bananas will freeze pretty quick. I try to take things that won't make me too thirsty.

    For an all day sit I like a few turkey and swiss sandwiches, string cheese, and a lot of water and Gatorade. When it is cold, I eat more. For some reason when I start eating more cheese in bow season I don't have to use #2 as much when im on stand. :nana:

    Usually I take two ham n cheese sandwiches,two or three granola bars,one big water bottle and one or two apples.

    If I take a sh*t in the AM before I leave I can usually go all day without feeling "the urge".

    I usually eat a decent breakfast. Pack some water and then eat a good dinner when I return. If I can't do breakfast then peanut butter sandwich but thats rare.

    I haven't sat all day in several years. Just haven't had a place to. I've got two stand sites this year that should be good for all day sits in November. I see several sandwiches, cliff bars, couple bottles of water, and probably some jerky.
