Curious to know if other hunters put as much thought into what they're eating before and during hunts as I am. During the hunting season I cut many foods from my diet, for various reasons. I eliminate broccoli, asparagus, and brussel sprouts during the hunting season due to the gas they can cause, obviously gas can create both sound and smell that could alert deer. I try to avoid overly fatty meats as they seem to move through the digestive tract a bit faster and can cause a guy to have to scurry down the tree with an imminent bowl movement. I do like high fiber foods during season, as they help me to have fewer bowl movements throughout the day. On stand I like to take trail mix with nuts, m&ms, raisins, and sunflower seeds. This is a good snack, loaded with protein for energy. If sitting all day I like to take a sandwich, but am careful what I put on it. Butter instead of mayonnaise, I leave off the onions, usually like turkey or chicken, they don't have as strong of scent, lettuce and tomato, this keeps my stomach from growling later in the hunt and doesn't leave a odor in the area. I also like to take some apples, but don't want to eat too many, I like to eat thin slices of apples as this allows their scent to disperse better into the wind ( I shouldn't have to explain why that's a good thing). So does anybody else consider these types of things when making food choices for before and during hunts? What foods would you avoid and why? What foods do you prefer to take to stand and why?
