    About 25g of protein to a 2oz. package. I think about 3g of fat and no carbs. Only drawback is the high sodium content.

    Would that be good to eat at lunch time? I might start taking some to school instead of eating the unheathy crap they have their.

    P.S. - I also happen to love Beef Jerky.

    About the sodium though, if you do not eat anything all week that has sodium wouldn’t it be okay?

    i think most beef jerky has nitrates in it which are not good for you.

    I would not worry to much about the sodium content, especially if you are following a low carb diet. Ketogenic diets are diuretic in nature, which will cause an increased loss of sodium in the body. Also the need for sodium is increased in athletes, especially those who are more endurance oriented, i.e. those who sweat more.

    My father makes some excellent Venison jerky during the season. Doesn't last long in my house though.
    Second place is the first loser.

    I used to stay away from salt, now I use it a bit. I have noticed no difference. I don't think it would be a problem not using the nitrate though. Refrigarate it and don't keep it to long, which isn't a problem for me.
    I bought a jerky shooter. Which like a cocking gun for hamburger. Quick and cheap, about prepare 3lbs in 15 minutes. Not queit as good, but I gooble it up

    NC, bow season started Sept. 13, but I haven't had a chance to go. gun season opened early this year (in my part of the state), and I went and did some late scouting, I know, I should have gone before the season, I might go this Sat. (If I can).

    I wish we would have bow seaons in Jan. Sept is just to hot and the bugs are too bad. Thats another reason I didn't go. I rather wait til rifle season and have to wear hunter orange with my underbrush suit, lol.

    Around here bow season ends Dec 31. I actually like bow season in the fall its a nice time to be in the woods. Usually by oct its cooled enough where theres not alot of bugs. I haven't bow hunted in 4 years. Don't have time to keep in tune. Need/want a new bow too.

    I got a new bow at the start of this year, got real good with it, then didn't shoot as much. The place where I hunt has a creek or pond just about every which way, if you go north, there is a creek, same with east, south there is a pond, so Skeeter is out there in Sept/Early Oct.
