Default what to eat while hunting

Iam new to hunting and this will be my first year going alone.
I have seen a few places thatsay to bringanything from snacks all the way to bringing a day or so worth of food with you.I guess my question is what does everyone bring with them in their pack to eat and how much is a good amount.
Iwill be hunting in Oklahoma on public landsoIshould be with in a reasonable distance from camp.

Bring what you think you'll eat. I don't hunt too far from the truck but I usually have my day pack with at least 2 20oz bottle of water or gatorade, 2 or 3 energy bars, a pack of beef jerky. If it's not been a good week and haven't seen many deer I pack an mre to stay out all day.

i like to bring a bottle af apple juice or water and a couple of bags of peanuts. they seem to work the best to take the hunger edge off. cans off pop are hard to work wth so i bring bottles i can close. thats just for a few hours i can't sit all day so i don't need much

Yep, me too. I eat a bowl of hot oatmeal in the morning and the water and granola bars can take me all the way to supper. I might throw in a couple of apples too.

I bring a PBJ sammie (peanut butter and jelly) and a bottle of water. I like to have a granola bar for a treat too.
