What foods do you eat while in a tree stand/blinds? I'm always afraid of strong smelling food or loud wrappers? What do you do?

Nothing. Eat something when i wake up, and after dark when im out of the stand back at camp. Not even so much about the smell, i figure if a critter can smell what im eating, they can smell me. I just like to move as little as possible in stand. My luck, if i was to dig into my pack for a sandwhich thats right when a big hurkin buck would come walking in and id get busted.

I eat from my stand. I try to be careful not to get so involved that I cannot quickly put my lunch or snack down. Like Whitey, I don't pay much attention to the scent at mid day. I might be more careful in the morning and evening when the wind current is going downward.
