Ok folks heres the challange , bow season starts in 2 months and firearms deer season in 4 months, I'm looking to make some pemmican to take as hunt snacks while I'm hikeing the back trails or perched for hours in a treestand..
I know how to make it , but it seems to me with all the fine smokers we have here we can come up with something better than dried meat, nuts, berries and fat pressed together. I know we have alot of hunters on this site,lets see what we can come up with.

Pemmican basic recipe
very lean dried or smoked meat ,,,,, deer, elk, beef, bison, no pork or bear !
apples, blueberrys, cherries. currents, just about any fruit
any chopped nuts , sunflower, pecan, walnut, peanut
a dab of honey
melted fat to hold it all together about 1 to 1 fat and meat
mix it all together press it together and keep in a cool place is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
