Curious to what you all use for hunting boots.

I'm partial to Irish Setters, mainly because of the amount of terrain I cover in Colorado calls for a quality boot and they have served me well for fit, comfort, and function.

I really like the Rocky Blizzard Stalkers . My last pair lasted about 10 years. On my second pair now , about 2 years in. Very comfortable, warm, and water proof.

Muck Boots always !!!

......LaCrosse Grange boots .

If not hunting in the mountains in PA I wear mostly Mucks. When in the mountains I generally need something with more ankle support like Meindle’s.

Always used Meindl until buying my last pair from Cabela's, which are poorly made.

From: Yellah Nocks
Date: 07-Apr-21




For stands just behind the house in warmer weather I just wear some services brand wellies. If I am hunting away from the house and/or cooler temps I wear Rocky Muck boots with insulation.

From: DanaC
Date: 07-Apr-21




Hunting season here extends from mid-October until December 31st so I go from light hikers through pac boots.

For starters either Timberland or Keen have served me well.

Mid-season, and old pair of leather Cabbela's 'Guide' boots with 1000 gram insulation.

Wet weather, Propét duck boots.

Late season, pacs.

I don't hunt mountains so I don't require 'stiff'. I need warm and dry.

From: Osage Outlaw
Date: 07-Apr-21




Early season I wear camo house slippers. Once it cools off I switch to Keen hiking boots. My legs are too big for muck boots.

PA here. LL Bean 10" Main Hunting Shoes in the early season and then Muck Artic Pros when it gets cold.

I've worn Danners for the last 30 years. Used to wear the boots that Lacrosse made that were similar to the LL Bean boots but they quit making them.

From: White Falcon

Snake boots a lot.

From: George D. Stout

Water proof hiking shoes just above ankle height. I wear them all year, all seasons.

In the West, Kennetrek hard scrabble hikers. In the swamps in Northern Wisconsin, Bean boots and Muck boots. Filson and Irish Setter for upland hunting.

When it comes to boots I'm not lacking at all. I have numerous types of boots for different weather conditions. I have three pair of L.L. Bean Maine Hunting Boots, one pair isn't insulated, second pair is insulated, and the third pair is insulated and has gortex. I have four pair of all rubber boots, three pair are not insulated, one pair is insulated. I have three pair of Sorel wool lined pac-boots, two pair are rated to -20 degrees, and I have a pair of Sorel Chieftains rated to -100 degrees. I also have a pair of leather Meindl boots insulated with gortex, and a pair of nylon sided Wolverine boots insulated with gortex. And I own two pair of waterproof Northside hiking boots. I'm a believer that quality hunting clothes and boots are as important as my bows and arrows. Specially if you are a hardcore bowhunter that hunts in nasty weather.

I took a chance on these Wolverines from Blains farm and fleet a couple years ago. ( I was gonna buy some Rockies) Insulated waterproof and were nice in the snow with good traction. I was hunting mostly dry woods. Ive got alot of marshy swampy woods around me now, might need to look for some deeper rubber boots

From: Dartwick

In PA.

If its dry I usually just wear work boots - welted sole Thorogoods.

If its damp or wet I wear LL Bean boots. If its also cold I wear them with extra socks.

I have a cellar full to Frank. About the only time I don't have the Lacrosse on is when I am planning on laying down a few miles till I get back home. Then I have something on that won't get quite as heated up.

Hunting boots are like hunting seats/stands........best to have a few styles for different hunts.

Nice photos guys....but wheres your boots Frank?

There is some of them Monkeyball. :)

I wear different weights of Danners. Like the elk hunter. My feet would freeze in those rubber boots. Plus takes 2 men and a boy to pull em off. I also wear snake boots til about November. When real cold I still wear those Mickey Mouse boots Bruner used to have. Warmest boot ever. Getting ready to try a pair of schees. It’s funny to hear people’s stories of old tried and true boots that are now junk. I remember when Rockies were great. I quit telling my wife she had too many shoes after she saw all my boots lol

Here are my Muck Artic Pros doing what they do best, keeping my feet warm! It was a lot colder on this day in our second season than the sun in the pic would let on.

The secret to getting all rubber boots off on your own is to invest in a good boot jack. :)

For early hunting or roving, got these non insulated Timberlands. Had bad luck with the last 2 pairs, this is the last chance they get from me. 2 yrs so far ok.

From: Joey Ward
Date: 07-Apr-21




Agree with the bootjacks......Everyone should have a couple around the house. I even keep one in that back of the truck. They are easy enough to make using scrap wood from other leftover projects.......

Mike T ask me to post these pictures so he could get an idea how to make a boot jack. They're pretty simple to make.

Nice, thank Nemo :)

I'm not a swamp stomper persay, I have learned from hiking that sometimes you are better off with a well vented light weight hiking shoe than a water logged boot.. With a good pair of merino socks, they dry fairly quickly.. I do have a low pair of vasque hiking boots for colder weather or if I need better ankle support..

From: wooddamon1 Compton's Traditional Bowhunters

Older Rocky's and Wolverines, LaCrosse Aerohead and Grange, Salomon and Merrell hikers and Irish Setter Vprtrks in camo. Gonna get some Beans to try this early fall as well.

From: reddogge
Date: 07-Apr-21




LaCrosse waders, Mucks, or Danners depending on hunting dry woods or marsh. I had a nice pair of Meindl hikers but the soles came unglued. I really liked them.

Muck boots or Wolverines.

Early season and dry weather don’t require a special hunting boot, any backpacking decent one makes the job. When the weather turns fool with rains and snow then you need some serious stuff. Meindl,Crispi, Scarpa and Zamberland are a step ahead. Deep snow Schnees are the one to go. To be stylish Russell.
