Ep 336: Backcountry Nutrition with Kyle Kamp RD


Kyle Kamp is a Registered Dietitian who helps people work out the details of how to optimize their diet to get the most out of life as well as the backcountry. When he is not doing that he is an avid hunter and Outdoorsman. In this podcast, we dive into the importance of diet and understanding the high level do’s and do not’s of what we are eating and more importantly what we are using for fuel. This podcast gets deep into the weeds of what will make you perform better and what is mostly hype. You can find his article on balancing proteins and carbs in the backcountry here.

It is that time again, time to start stocking up the food stash in prep for hunting season. If you have been thinking about signing up now is the time there are only 5 or 6 boxes between now and archery season. So if you plan to stock up the time to start preparing for season is now not the week before season. I may be biased because it is my box but I love getting the box because first and foremost I now always have snacks and bars when Kels and I go for a hike or off on a trip. I have also found so many cool products from the box, and really that is why I started it. I would always see cool new products on Instagram but would never take the time to order each one or try them out. I’m telling you sign up, you’re gonna love it and if you don’t there is zero commitment, don’t like it just cancel. We are so confident you are gonna like it we don’t have to trick you into some 6 month deal. Head over to and use the TRO code to get 10% off. This podcast is brought to you by a new sponsor and a cool piece of gear that I am excited to share with you guys. Based right here in Bozeman the Montana Bow Sling is a great piece of gear that I have been using for the last year or so. The cool thing I like about the Montana Bow Sling is that is attaches right to most any hunting pack using existing webbing or it can connect to itself like a traditional bow sling. Some guys like slings and some don’t, but I definitely like having one. Whether just covering ground mid day or just being able to glass without having to set my bow down they come in really handy. The down side to most slings is that it is one more thing to keep track of and carry. The cool thing with the Montana Bow sling is that it is always attached to my pack so I don’t have to put it away, get it out, or anything in between. On top of that it only weighs 6-8 ounces depending on what style you go with. Like I mentioned I used this sling all last season and like how it is always available, easy to use and not in the way. Overall a really good piece of gear. Check them out at and use code TRO for 20% off.
