Sippin around the camp fire

Put the rifle up and let the protein digest. Pick yer poison.



Old Forester and water on the rocks.

Tea, regular and herbal. No booze on hunting trips for me. Too much can go wrong where I go even when you're doing everything right.

The coldest beer or the oldest whiskey you can find.

Cold beer. It really helps the lies sound believable.

Usually, while contemplating life in the flames of a campfire, there's a hot, fresh cuppa joe in my hands, but just before I call it a night and slip into my bag, you'll probably hear the cork pop on a vintage Pinot Noir.

Ice cold Bud Light or once in a while, very smooth Tequila-Corralejo.

Normally, a fine microbrew of sorts, although we've been doing the Tecate thing a lot lately.

As the night progresses, a single malt scotch, Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, or something that's trendy.

We have done some Cazadores as of late. Went through a Jaegermiester phase a few years back, too

All with premium cigar, of course.

Sam's Choice Apple Juice-Punch Blend, straight up.

Or beer, not particular on type. Occasionally Jim Beam for straight sippin'.

Good idea for a thread:

Subtlety is wasted on the young. dbgun, the proper response is, "Wouldn't everybody?"

Sorry about that, Art. I hadn't had my morning coffee this morning, when I replied. Went right over my head.

If I could afford it and set it up, I'd ship a bottle of Woodford to each person here to enjoy around the campfire. I like the folks in the hunting forum -- you guys are O.K.!

P.S. Happy 4th of July!

Woodford's Reserve is right up my alley. Old Forester is easier to budget for. I don't complain about Weller's either. GUD STUPH

"Sippin' around the campfire" for me has always been a maximum of TWO beers. Not enough to get drunk, but just enough to stimulate the bladder for that last "nature call" before turning in! Besides, I don't want to be passed out drunk if some two-legged varmints pay a late night visit!

Bank the coals for an early-morning cup of mud, make sure that nothing in the camp is going to "grow legs" or attract the four-legged critters, take a brisk walk around the perimeter, stop off to "bleed the lizard", then shut off the lantern and enjoy the stars and the beauty of silence! Make sure that I have a flashlight AND handgun nearby before shutting the eyelids! Goodnight! Well, maybe one last belch and/or passage of wind!

Ain't life grand?

Woodford Reserve, straight up....you got that one right fisherman66

Usually keep a bottle of Drambui in the cupboard of the hunting camper also......Good served warm after a huge Steak cooked over an open fire....

Is it hunting season yet

After the meats hanging and the rifle is put up then I like a good cold Moose Drool, but alomost any beer will work. I don't go past beer very much but Jack or Crown with some Coke to sip on isn't bad either.

"New" camp favorite - obviously after everything is done for the day - Cuervo Black and Coke. I brought it along on a hog hunt on a whim (the advertising must of worked) and really was impressed.

Fat Tire or Alaskan Amber. Keystone Light for the pack trips - light beer saves on weight.
