Led by course creators Ryan Lampers and Mark Livesay, who spend hundreds of combined days in the backcountry each year, this comprehensive course covers everything you need to know about DIY meal preparation. You'll learn their tips, tactics, and methods for taking full control of your backcountry food and meal quality, as well as how to choose the right equipment, select the best ingredients, and prepare different types of meals using both dehydrating and freeze-drying methods.

Retail backpacking meals can be expensive and often contain high levels of preservatives, leaving you with limited choices. This course is unique in the fact that it covers both dehydration and freeze-drying methods. We'll cover the pros and cons of both methods, provide a cost analysis, and recommend the best preservation equipment. Plus, we'll teach you how to package, rehydrate, and prepare your meals in the backcountry.

Remember, "you are what you eat,", especially in the backcountry where high-level physical performance is crucial. By completing this course, you'll have full control over your meal preparation process, resulting in better meals, significant savings, and an enhanced backcountry experience.

You may be surprised with how cost-effective it is to take control of your backcountry meals.

What Do The Western Hunting Experts Say

The Rich Outdoors Podcast | Backcountry Fuel Box

"I have interviewed hundreds of hunters and most of the best big game hunters in the world. The one thing they all have in common is their ability to plan a hunt and their efficiency in the hills. Mark Livesay is hands down the best E-scouting guru I have ever met, and this course will help you layout a game plan that will absolutely take your hunting to the next level.  His course is underpriced and quite possibly the best information ever put together on the topic."

Western Hunting Summit | Sthealthy Products

"Time is of utmost importance when taking on big hunts each and every season. A detailed Hunt Plan combined with a E-Scouting system is a game changer. Consistent success just doesn’t happen, which is why the Treeline Academy E-Scouting MasterClass is so incredibly helpful when planning an elk hunt. September is short. Prepare, know before you go and eliminate wasting that precious mountain time."
