If you need something warm, pack a thermos of soup broth with you. Water is good for me, and then the left over holloween candy works well. Some of the chewy granola bars vs the crunchy hard ones, a cheesewiz sandwich or two and i am in for the long haul. Maybe some homemade jerky but not to often. Dont like the smell left over...but maybe i will give that gum a try. Oversized gatorade bottle for pissing in, just make sure you dont grab that instead of the thermos when your thirsty. Otherwise I have crawled back down and dug a hole with my boot and pissed in then covered it up. Only to have a buck come up and smell it later. I dont think pissing out of a stand would affect them in the rut.
