Packed with protein and other essential nutrients, Old Trapper Beef Jerky is ideal for the on-the-go hunter
Keeping our bodies fueled while engaging in outdoor activities is harder than it appears.
Why? One reason is serious outdoorsmen and women don’t like to stop. We are constantly pushing the envelope – trying desperately to squeeze every minute out of every day.
Taking time to stop and pound calories is time we could use to chase a distant bugle or climb over a ridge to an unsullied alpine basin.
Second, toting food, especially on extended backcountry sojourns, can be difficult. It takes lots of planning and preparation to make sure we have enough sustenance in our coolers and packs to keep us energized and provide proper nutrients.
Beef jerky, such as Old Trapper Beef Jerky just may be the ultimate snack item for hunters. Besides being loaded with protein – the building block of life – jerky is easy to carry and takes up little room. Every cell in the human body contains protein, and you need adequate amounts of it in your daily diet to help your body repair cells and make new ones.
Hunting can be a rigorous affair. We walk, we climb and we repeat; often with very little sleep in between.
We need protein to repair the damage we are doing and to keep us going day after day. Besides helping to repair cells and make new ones, protein helps with fluid balance, vision and ensures proper transportation of vital substances throughout the body. In short, it’s a crucial element to your hunt.
