14 posts in this topic

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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
