USPENAMC

well im just looking to see if anyone knows where I can purchase MRE's MEALS READY TO EAT like the ones used for the military i use them for hunting season. I dont want the other civilian imitation or any other kinds besides the actual MREs. If anyone knows any stores or where to go to purchase them i would appreciate it. I would buy them online but they wont be here by saturdays archery opener

Go to any Fleet Farm and head to the camping section. They will have Mountain House freeze dried meals that are civilian version of what the company makes for the military. Most camping supply stores probably have these too or army surplus stores may have the real thing.

Never trust an Army/Navy surplus storethat doesn't carry MRE's......

In my neighborhood, that would be G.I. Joes.

MRE's tend to have a lot of junk in them that you don't need, plus they're heavy, I think you'd be better buying the freeze dried mixes, romain noodles, candy bars, jerky, ham, etc by themselves. You can do better than MRE's.

I would agree. Like I said, fleet farm has tasy freeze dried civilan versions like alfredo pasta, lasagna, beef strognoff and even neopolitan ice cream or rasberry crumble for dessert! grin.gif

Sorry I would have to agree that MREs are the way to go. Plus they bring back many memories from my time spent in uniform. If it is good enough for our troops in harms way I can eat them cool.gif

You can get MREs on the net. There are so many to choose from now. I would have to say that the NEW MREs are WAYYYYY better than the ones I had when I was in the military in the mid to late 90s.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
    • mrpike1973
      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
