In Montana you can take home for personal consumption elk, deer moose and antelope that you hit. No dressing on the side of the road is allowed. Within 24 hrs. you have to go on line and get a retroactive permit so officials can keep track of kills. Iíve read itís pretty popular.

+1 on the Pop Tarts. Easy to store. Easy to eat. The brown sugar/cinnamon type are my go to.

If you put Pop tarts on the lid of a pot while you boil water for oatmeal/cocoa/coffee, it'll warm them up into something approaching edible.

My 5G vaccine downloads all the cookies I'll ever need.

Seriously, as others have noted above, there is still the high cycling nutrition to cost value energy bars available at any convenience store. Fig Newtons. They got me home a few times on very long day rides 45 years ago and a few times since.
