I will say this.... liquor rather than beer is far more conducive to a pleasant next morning in a tree stand, or hunting in general, in terms of the number and effect of pee breaks on your stealth factor. If no hunting in store the next day, then beer is fine.

I don't even know what Woodford is.

Some of the best whiskey you'll ever taste.

And at $35.00 a bottle, it had better be.

I'm with Arizona Fusilier: Glenlivet, Glenfiddich for scotch wiskey, Jameson for irish wiskey, or good ol' fashioned Jack Daniels for 'murican wiskey. I like having a cigar handy, but it stinks up the clothes something fierce for the next day's hunt.

srtrax, there is usually a bottle of Turkey around our camp, or Crown, or JD, or whatevertheheckwasonsalethatday....Really depends on how cash flow looked as camp prep was going on....

Only thing we don't drink anymore is really cheap beer, that is worth a little extra money.

First hour or two, Miller Lite

If it's hot, like a summer pig hunt- Try a Waia'nae Lemonade- Lemonade with Raspberry vodka in a large glass full of ice. I know it sounds sissy but it cuts through the dust, heat and humidity as well as a tall Gin and Tonic. Be careful this stuff will sneak up on you...
During the winter- A good Sourmash Bourbon & 7...Over ice.

of course, no drinking until after all the meat is hung and the rifles are put away...

Happy 4th all!

If it's hot....ice cold Coors Light. It is the state beer after all.

If it's not hot....a fine single malt straight up...Macallum 12 or 18 would be my preferrence.

Woodford's a smidgen smoother than Maker's Mark, which is a tad smoother than Wild Turkey. My ex-wife sent me a bottle of Woodford's for a birthday present...

Beer? No lightweights, no Lone Star, thank you. First choice is Dos Equis or Shiner Bock. But Bud Ain't Bad, these last 50+ years...

I'll drink anything offered; except wines, ughh.

If I'm providing, it'll be Canadian Whiskey, near-cheap Vodka, or "the Beast" - my kids term for cheap beer.

With three college bills, its the best I can do.

The same thing that is sitting in front of this keyboard right now, Schlitz Malt Liquor.
Stuff get a BUM RAP (pun fully intended) I pack in a couple for the celebration of a successful hunt. I do have to bring it with,(out of state hunts) as even here the off sale has it special for me.

I remember when Schlitz and Pabst Blue Ribbon were the two most popular beers. 70s, lol. I'll have to try that Woodford for the rare occasions I do drink. 'Round here, people are partial to Crown Royal, Jack Daniels, & Jim Beam, myself included. I don't care much for Wild Turkey. Is there a valid distinction (which I have in my mind): American whiskey vs. Bourbon whiskey vs. Canadian whiskey? I understood Wild Turkey to be a Bourbon whiskey, whereas Jim Beam for example an "American" whiskey.... no?

FF, there are all manner of blends.

A year or so back there was a lengthy discussion of blends at the KimDuToit website. I guess it would be in the archives. Something like "blends + scotch", although bourbon, etc., was also discussed.

Bourbon whiskey, by law, must be made in Bourbon county Kentucky. The percentage of corn used is also regulated in order to be called "bourbon". With other whickeys, they are made elsewhere (even if they use the same materials and processes - which they might not).

My favorite hooch lately is Knob Creek, all you whiskey fans need to give it a try. It's the perfect burbon as far as I can tell. Im told another one called "Jeffersons Reserve" is an even better small batch whiskey. But at $52 a bottle, it's a tad high for me.

I was pretty impressed with a bottle of Pendelton whiskey that showed up in camp last year. Canadian, and probably a blend, but very smooth.

"Knob Creek" is very good stuff. We usually drink the "Wellers" as it is more afforadable. I also like "George Dickel" 12 year old. I'm going to have to find some of the "Woodford" everyone is talking about and give it a try!

There is also one called Ezra B. that y'all should check out. It's unblended, though, so every bottle from a different barrel tastes VERY different. Good stuff.

Do any of you ever drink Canadian whiskey such as Gibsons Finest 12 year old. If you did you would forget who Jack Daniels was.

You talkin' 'bout Ezra Brooks Bill? It is pretty good whiskey. My wife's grandfather gave me a ceramic clown jug that was put out by them for a while (I really don't know when they made those). It's got the Ezra Brooks logo on it, and you poured the whiskey out of the top of the clown's head! I'm hangin' on to it in the hopes it might be worth something one day.
