In this Treeline Pursuits video cast segment we discuss how to dehydrate your own backcountry meals. We get into the details on how to prepare, dehydrate, store and ultimately cook your own dehydrated backcountry meals. I don’t care to remember how many days I ate Mountain House on my hunts covering three states last year. This year I made the committment to go DIY with my meals and in this video I tell you how I do it, including how I package my meals, so they are ready to store, cook and eat in the backcountry.
Corrections: I said 160 degrees in the video.. I do jerky at 160, but my prepared meals that I dehydrate I use 130-135 degrees. I also tested both the bigger stand up bags and the smaller ones in the video. The longer spoon/sporks do work better in the smaller ones and they hold plenty of food. I used 2 cups of dehydrated food was a big amount and perfect.
Our Video Casts are raw and real, and can get a bit long. We love to dig deep into the topics we cover. So many articles and videos that you find are the typical mile-high flyovers that only seem to scratch the surface. They leave you short and wanting to know more.
We are starting to build our tribe at Treeline Pursuits. We value comments and we try to respond to all of them. We are dedicated to becoming a valuable resource for the DIY hunter and we want to play a part in your successful backcountry hunting adventures.
Please help us spread the good word. Will you consider sharing Treeline Pursuits with your fellow hunting friends and partners?
