When hunting season rolls around in the western United States, Joe Ferronado of Petersen's Hunting Magazine isn't going to stay in the office if he can help it. Instead, he's out and about, roaming around on foot, trying to fill an empty tag. As he covers the rugged miles, he's on his feet and his pack is filled with necessities like first aid supplies, a bottle filled with purified water, and snacks like Old Trapper's Peppered and Hot & Spicy Beef Jerky. With a supply of nutritious protein, Ferronato is prepared for whatever he faces on a short day trip or an extended trek into the high country.
