You're hunting elk in Montana. You have room for 1 meal in your pack. MRE or store-bought dehydrated meal?

    a mre cause they taste better, and unlike mtn. house foods you dont need to ad hot water.

    If you can take only one meal, you have no idea how to pack.

    You can OPEN the MREs and pick and choose an assortment to stash in your buttpack, pack, jacket pockets. Crackers in the pockets to nibble while hiking, etc...

    Like above, a few Snickers stuck here and there are a fine idea.

    And of course, you are taking a bag or E-tool to NOT LEAVE THAT CRAP SCATTERED ALL OVER MY WOODS! Sorry, I usually just think that in silent frustration.

    I would go with MRE. Lots of stuff in the full meal pouches and the heater is contained in it. No need to bring a stove or anything. But then again...if you dont have a stove you cant boil water if you dont have potable aqua or something like that.

    I would say a MRE, I have eaten plenty of them on deployment. With everyone talking about using water to heat them, you could always use the water around you. We were doing training near the ocean so I filled up the heater with salt water. I have used stream water and gatorade. Any liquid will do, also they are coming out with new meals like tuna and sloppy joe filling. Some of the items you have to mix and have an imagination. (Like mixing crackers + spiced apples= apple crisp. I know it is not the really thing but its the next best when you are far from home.)

    Really the only decent MRE's are the military ones, which you cannot easily find as they are government property, and therefore cannot legally be sold. Freeze dried and dehydrated food is quite expensive. When I need lunch in the field, I use this wonderful new invention called a lunch box.

    The MRE's offer more calories, but weigh a ton compared the freeze dried meals. I keep a few in my truck and about 10 in my SHTF regimen. If I'm hiking anywhere I've got my pack/my cookstove and my freezedried stuff in there. MRE'S are fine if someone else is toting them, but freezedried taste better.
