Today we are going to share JerkyGent reviews from our staff of hunters as well as from our readers, so you can decide if you should add this to your hunting pack, or as a gift to your favorite hunter.

What is JerkyGent?

JerkyGent Subscription Box

JerkyGent is a beef jerky subscription box, where they send you a box of your favorite jerky every month.

You can also order a one time shipment to see what kind of jerky you like.

We became of aware of JerkyGent when some of our staff brought some of the beef jerky into our office and said: "You have to try this jerky. I keep it in my hunting pack at all times".

It was People's Choice Craft Made Garlic Ginger Beef Jerky and it was some of the best jerky that I have ever had.

As the four of us sat in my office and passed bags of jerky around, I realized that we had to do a JerkyGent review and let other hunters know about this innovative company.

JerkyGent Options

JerkyGent Options

JerkyGent has three size options for their subscription boxes:

  • JerkyGent Mini which is a box with 2 bags of artisan Jerky.
  • JerkyGent Classic which is a box with 4 bags of artisan Jerky.
  • JerkyGent XL which is a box with 8 bags of artisan Jerky.

With each box you can choose your preference for spiciness.

  • Mild/Medium
  • Hot/Spicy

You can also choose your flavor preference:

  • Traditional
  • Non Traditional

Once you have found your favorite jerky brands and flavors, you can have them delivered right to your door monthly.

JerkyGent Reviews Of The Beef Jerky

Here are reviews of the beef jerky that is included in the JerkyGent box.

Think Jerky Grass Fed Sweet Chipotle Beef Jerky

Think Jerky Grass Fed Beef Jerky

This is one of my favorite jerkys in the box and here's why:

  • Created by Chef Matt Troost, a farm to table expert.
  • 100% Grass Fed Beef
  • Recipe combines raspberries with a three pepper blend and is the perfect sweet and spicy flavor without being overwhelmingly spicy.

Think Jerky is one of the top artisan jerky makers in the country and they hit it out of the park with this flavor. 

This is in every JerkyGent subscription box that I get and that I send as gifts. I have yet to have one person tell me that they don't like this jerky.

People's Choice Craft Made Garlic Ginger Beef Jerky

People's Choice Beef Jerky

This is my second favorite jerky from the JerkyGent subscription box.

The garlic and ginger combination along with the right texture and covered in sesame seeds makes this craft jerky a winner.

I am a big fan of grass fed beef, so I am a little disappointed that People's Choice Tasting Kitchen does not use grass fed beef, but the flavor of this jerky is awesome.

Righteous Felon Craft Jerky Bourbon Franklin Beef Jerky

Righteous Felon Beef Jerky

A really good flavor for craft jerky. It is a combination of bourbon and vanilla bean, along with a bunch of other spices that a favorite among beef jerky lovers.

It comes in a 2 ounce resealable pouch, which is perfect for your backpack.

This is the favorite of a number of guys on our staff and you can always find it in our offices.

Again, I wish it was grass fed beef. That is why it is this far down the list.

Johnny Mac's Smokin Southwestern Tri Tip Beef Jerky

Johnny Mac's Beef Jerky

If you like a smokey southwestern flavor beef jerky with a spicy aftertaste, then this one's for you.

It is a little bit more moist then some of the other jerkys, but the flavor is spot on.

The biggest downfall of the Johnny Mac's is that it does not come in a resealable pouch. That makes it less than ideal for keeping in your hunting pack.

I get around that by transferring it to a zip lock bag, but it is an extra step that should not be necessary.

Also, it is not grass fed.

I first got JerkyGent as a gift and I love it! Beef Jerky is the ideal hunting snack. It is easy to pack. It doesn't go bad. It is nutritious and keeps hunger away when I am spending hours in a tree stand.

I like it so much that I have started sending a subscription box to all of my landowners that let me hunt on their land. They rave about it and I haven't lost a piece of hunting land yet!

JerkyGent makes it so easy to keep my pantry and backpack stocked with the best beef jerky.

It doesn't matter whether I am in a tree stand, or chasing elk up and down mountains, beef jerky is my go-to snack when I am in the woods.

JerkyGent is one of the best gifts for hunters in your life. They will love it!

I take beef jerky with me on every hunting trip and fishing trip. It is the perfect snack that is easy to pack and it doesn't go bad.

I have my own processing area with a meat grinder, and jerky maker, but JerkyGent makes it so easy to keep supplied with the best beef jerky that I don't hardly make it anymore. I use to think that I had the best venison recipe for jerky until I found the Think Jerky Sweet Chipotle through JerkyGent.

I use all of my venison for other stuff like sausage.

JerkyGent Reviews From Our Readers

We reached out to our readers via email and asked them what they thought about JerkyGent.

Here is what they had to say:


Reader From Iowa

I had never heard of JerkyGent until I received a subscription as a gift. I thought it was a great idea. I eventually customized the subscription with the jeky that I like the most and I couldn't be happier. The only downside is that I can't keep my wife and kids out of my jerky!


Reader From Illinois

I found JerkyGent when I was looking for the perfect gift for a hunter in my life. I gave him a JerkyGent subscription and he absolutely loves it! It a great gift idea for when you don't know what to get someone.

JerkyGent Reviews Final Thoughts

If you are looking for a great gift for hunters, or anyone for that matter, the JerkyGent beef jerky subscription box will not disappoint.

It is a unique and innovative idea that the gift recipient has probably not received before and it is guaranteed to fit!
