    When I go to the mountains to hunt I have a canteen of clean water dangling from my saddle and maybe a secret Diet Pepsi in the saddlebag. Can anyone recommend any of the so called "energy drinks" or bottled water that is a superior choice?

      Ish,

      I've read up on that stuff and what I drink is water. It helps offset all the coofee on my kidneys and keeps you hydrated. Diet drinks have chemicals in them that make you want to eat and also have been linked to Cancer. Drinks like "Boost" etc are loaded with various amounts of suger, Caffeine and chemicals. Fruit juice is mostly sugar and water. The bottling process destroys the enzymes and most vitamins. If water won't work I would go with Cpt Brad's suggestion. Just posted pics of Prince William Sound.

        I'm fond of Tahitian Treat fruit punch when I can find it. It's got an amazing sugar wallop, with even more calories than a regular soda, but no caffeine. The carbonation is low enough that it also quenches your thirst better than a cola. It's red as sin, and it's probably terrible for you, but I used to drink it when I started deer hunting as a kid and it takes me back. Besides, counting calories is the last thing on my mind when I'm hunting.

          I take pouches of powdered Gatoraide with me on all my hunts. It keeps you hydrated with out the sugar/caffine crash.

            Gatorade or Powerade. Do not take Monster Energy drinks.

              whatever you take, check the ingredients to see if it contains corn syrup which is used as a sweetener...That stuff will make you even more thirsty...you cant really improve on good old H2O...

                    green tea is great, they also have green tea in powder packs that you mix with 16 oz of water.

                      Water is the best thing to drink.

                        My horses agree with most of you so I guess I will keep doing what I do. Del, I just have to drink that Diet Pepsi every now and then.

                          Alot of the energy drinks cause a guy to crash due to massive amounts of sugar. XS energy drink is one that supposedly does not (I'm not sure of the ingredients but it's suppose to be healthier alternative)

                              I take gatorade powder on multiday hunts and usually add it to every fourth quart of water i drink. I noticed a decrease in cramps while climbing after i started bringing it. I don't know if it is just in my head or not, but I feel better.
