Default deer camp meals

What do you cook at deer camp? It seems like its always a struggle to find something to cook at camp.

I/we have a saying at camp. "We're going to eat like kings" Red meat, potatoes, cheesy stuff, chips etc. Nothing green. Camp rule.

Breakfast: s**t on shingles (meat in gravy, over toast) or tacos

Lunch: sandwich or dried sausage and jerky

Dinner: some kind of grilled deer steak or fish w/ beans or chili when it gets cold

Been the same exact menu for as long as I can remember. My dads told me that was what they ate every weekend when he was a kid at their lease with my grandpa. The S.O.S. has been a staple in the family for generations. It’s so easy but so good.

During hunting season we try to use the crock pot for the evening meal. Load it up midday and let it cook on low. When we come in it’s ready to eat. If anyone has an animal to take care of they can still have a hot meal regardless of what time they finish.

We tend to use a crock pot for roasts and pork dishes and many other things, well go out feeding feeders, doing maintenance or whatever projects. We'll set it up around lunch time and go out, by the time is well dark and we get back to camp it's ready.. pretty awesome. We also do steaks on the grill, burgers, my dad will fry fish for the group sometimes and it's a treat when our beloved cajuns make jambalaya.. we typically plan about 2 weeks in advance to get all the supplies and whos bringing what for which night etc..

Prime Filets, blackened redfish, ribeyes.....we aren’t mad at the animals anymore. We go to eat like kings, drink a bunch of beer and hang out by the fire. If you shoot a deer you have to clean the dang thing.

There have been times in deer camp where I gained more weight in three days than I could in three weeks back home. I try to do burgers, steaks, sausage, pork chops, etc....anything I can grill. I am not going to go hungry at deer camp. To me part of the fun is cooking out in the evenings with whoever is in camp. If we have several people in camp we just throw whatever we have on the grill and share the food. Breakfast tacos and sandwiches are easy for breakfast and lunch. Heck, you can pick up fried chicken on the way to the lease with sides.

We try to eat really healthy and go more the vegan route to counteract the fact that we are taking a life by hunting.

Burgers, deer sausage and steaks. I hate to admit it, but I just love a good ol' nasty chili dog.

For breakfast, my favorite at the lease in boudin & eggs along with some extra thick cut smoked bacon. Simple, easy to cook and hits the spot every time!

My son and I keep it simple: sausage wraps, packaged pull pork, packaged BBQ (shredded) beef, chips, and a package of cookies. If we're tired or busy, we'll get a pizza from the convenience store when we stop to get ice. We were very surprised to find the $10.00 pizza from the convenience store was actually quite tasty, and enough of a meal for the two of us.

Regards,

Dave

I usually like to include as many variations of dead animal as possible on my plate at one time. Most of them wrapped in bacon. Maybe a can of jalapeno ranch style beans every now and then.

My deer lease was pretty basic... and this year it has gotten even more basic. I typically just pack some snacks like pretzels and peanut butter, bananas, oranges, and granola bars. My wife will pack me a rubber made tub full of sandwiches and I'll eat off those for whatever meal. When it is really cold outside, I used to bring a serving sized crockpot soup warmer and some canned soup to heat up before my evening sit so it was nice and hot when I got back.

I guess you could say I like to hunt hard when I go out to the lease, so I don't give the cooking part much thought. Eating is an after thought and if I dropped an animal, I have to clean it, etc and get it on ice and that means eating late and still wanting to get up real early the next day to put in another sit, stalk, whatever. So I'm just a natural grab-n-go eater when it comes to hunting.

The best lease-mate to have is somebody who doesn't really like hunting, but loves to cook!
